Through a Glass Darkly: A Discussion of “The Analyst’s Necessary Nonsovereignty and the Generative Power of the Negative”

Amy Schwartz Cooney, Ph.D.

I reflect on Jade McGleughlin’s meditation on “The Analyst’s Necessary Nonsovereignty and the Generative Power of the Negative,” (this issue) with appreciation for her focus on the non-symbolizable in psychoanalysis and for her interdisciplinary integrations. I resonate with her observations of paradoxes in Bionian Field theory, am moved by her innovative clinical narrative and value her reflections on Agnes Martin’s work. I question her equation of sovereignty with subjectivity, query the implication that to surveil is to foreclose, ask for clarification on her construal of psychoanalytic transformation, and muse on the risk of misrepresentation as we venture away from the representable. I take up McGleughlin’s invitation to dialogue in the hope that such conversation will contribute to expanded inquiry into the multiple pathways toward psychoanalytic generativity.
