Fairbairn and Winnicott on My Mind: Counterpoints, Tensions, and Oscillations in the Clinical Setting

Marie Hoffman, Ph.D.

The author explores the religious narratives that informed the works of W. R. D. Fairbairn and D. W. Winnicott—Calvinism and Wesleyanism, respectively. From these narratives, three broad philosophical tensions are identified: oneness and otherness (transcendence and immanence), theory and experience, and suspicion and faith. The author locates these clinically relevant counterpoints both in the theories of Fairbairn and Winnicott and in Guntrip's accounts of his analyses with them. A model of clinical work integrating these two stances is illustrated by a clinical vignette.
