Psychoanalysis And The Aesthetic Dimension: Commentary On Lisa Cataldo’s “Where God Is Between Us”

Marilyn Charles, PhD, ABPP

In inviting this contemplation on spirituality and psychoanalysis, Cataldo highlights two interrelated questions: how we face the unknown and how, in spite of that fear, we sustain respect for the otherness of the other. Cataldo’s language is couched in the terms of relational psychoanalysis, whereas my own perspective is drawn from object relations theories, with salient metaphors from Bion and Lacan.

I hope that adding my own lenses will further illuminate the field she has so richly developed.
