A Discussion of “The Analyst’s Necessary Nonsovereignty and the Generative Power of the Negative”

Antonino Ferro, M.D.

The author discusses the principal themes in Jade McGleughlin’s paper (this issue): the to-and-fro movement between the negative and confusion in the session, the ever-present risk of the analyst’s sovereignty, and acknowledgment of the analyst’s own vulnerability. He draws inspiration from the many original and often unexpected aspects of the paper to reflect upon new developments in Bion Field Theory. In order to facilitate theoretical discussion, like Jade McGleughlin, the author makes reference to the world of art and literature. Particular attention is given to the theme of the creative potential of the unknown and the ongoing challenge faced by analysts to open themselves to the new and as yet unthought-of as opposed to going on seeing what they have been used to seeing.
