From Whose Point of View? The Neglected Question in Analytic Listening

Evelyne Albrecht Schwaber, M.D.

The central question which I hope to address is: how do we discover, in our clinical work, what we had not before even considered, another way of thinking about a matter?

In so doing, I shall consider some conceptual, methodological, and epistemological ramifications of this effort in an attempt to demonstrate the potential for deepened illumination of nuances of the patient's experience—and of our own—which may otherwise go unnoted.
