Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

Empathy, Antipathy and Telepathy in the Analytic Process

René Major, M.D. and Patrick Miller, M.D.

Editor's Introductory Note

James Thurber described a man who had all his books translated into French because he thought they lost a great deal in the original. Aware that much is lost in translation into English, we have tried nonetheless to maintain in this paper by Drs. Major and Miller the flavor of thought in current French analytic circles.

Drs. Major and Miller review the common phenomenon of uncanny intersubjectivity, as Freud did when he considered telepathy. Thus, their ideas can be placed along the axis away from simple emotionality towards unemotional examination of thought transference. Their conceptualizations are rooted in Freud's early theories, particularly the shift from autoerotic and thing representations to object-related and word representations, with the capacity for both regression and progression along that line. A concept basic to their premise is that the unconscious of the other plays a formative role in the developing unconscious of the subject.
