World, Affectivity, Trauma: Heidegger and Post-Cartesian Psychoanalysis, by Robert D. Stolorow, Routledge, New York, 2011, 136 pp.

Review by:
Harold Bronheim, M.D.

Robert Stolorow is one of our leading psychoanalytic theorists at large. His many writings have had important influence on the understanding of trauma. He has also influenced the conceptualization of the psychoanalytic dyad and the process of interpretation as a post-Cartesian or postmodern contextual world of intersubjectivity. Stolorow and others have courageously extracted the psychoanalytic process from the indefensible position of scientific objectivity to the more enmeshed perspective in which it actually operates. This more complex perspective allows for the deep meaningful experience of the psychoanalytic process and the “truthfulness” of interpretations that emerge which enable personal transformation.

Because of his elegant writing we were excited to read this latest product of his thinking in this book. There has always been a dialogue and a cross-pollination of ideas between theorists in the world of psychoanalysis and the citadels of philosophy. In this regard Heidegger is of particular interest because of the importance and influence of his great work Being and Time (1927). With it Heidegger significantly influenced the school of continental philosophy between the great wars of the 20th century.
