Memory, Empathy, And Interactive Dimensions Of Psychoanalytic Process

Morton F. Reiser

How is psychoanalysis to deal with its ever widening field of clinical observations and the changing theoretical perspectives that may accompany them—e.g., those concerning intersubjectivity and empathy? Will it be necessary, as some suggest, to modify traditional theory and to abandon related principles of technique such as anonymity and abstinence? Detailed clinical examples of specific interactions are presented to illustrate the interrelated roles of memory, subjective interaction, and empathy.
