Found in Translation … Perhaps: Reply to Commentaries

Steven H. Knoblauch, Ph.D.

The commentaries by Cornell and Markman are read here as attempts to convert or translate my text in terms they have found useful building on ideas by Winnicott, Bion, and others. I experience meaning in these commentaries in the sense that I can feel found at times in their words, but also, perhaps not. I try to convey the value and limits of our attempts to use a languaged representation of the polyrhythmic weave of embodied registrations, which I emphasize as a useful expansion for analytic attention. It is with these registrations that dissociated affect might be engaged in a way that helps the analyst to navigate, rather than react to, difficult to bear affects associated with dysregulation and shame.
