Words as Things, Words As Meanings: The Testing of a Psychoanalytic Principle

In reviewing this target article, the reviewer is best suited to be competent in clinical and theoretical psychoanalysis, cognitive science, psycholinguistics, neural networks, neurobiology, and the evaluation of a research paradigm and its conclusions. To approach from one or two vantage points can be useful but does not do true justice to the interdisciplinary enterprise of this journal and Karen Klein Villa et al.'s study. And so I (Pincus) have done what I do best: learn all that I can and then turn to others who are expert in a discipline that I do not adequately grasp. This approach is at the heart of our Cleveland Mind-Brain Group. Sometimes we may be wrong, confused, and are never quite able to bridge the scientific and cultural divide between disciplines, but as least we try to learn together. Patrizia Bonaventura, who appears as second author in this commentary, is a member of the Cleveland group and professor of communication sciences at Case Western Reserve University. This consultation has been a wise and productive choice.
