Psychoanalysis as the “Loyal Opposition”—Commentary on a Paper by Kenneth Frank

Jeremy D. Safran, PhD

Ken Frank's compelling and eloquently argued essay is a valuable clarion call for action at time when psychoanalysis is in a state of crisis. In my commentary I argue that it is important for us to extend the boundaries of our understanding of the nature of this crisis, and attempt to delineate some of the broader concerns that are important for us to consider in our health-care system and our culture in general. I argue that it is important for us to cast our gaze outside of the traditional boundaries of psychoanalysis, not only to revitalize the field of psychoanalysis, but also to think about the most valuable function we can serve within the broader system.
