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.
