Intersubjectiviteit in de psychoanalyse van kinderen en adolescenten

Jaap Ubbels


Intersubjectivity in the psychoanalysis of children and adolescents

The introduction of the intersubjective point of view brought a complex and difficult concept out of two hundred years of continental philosophy into psychoanalysis. Though the meaning or the analysis of children remained ambiguous and unclear for a long time, philosophy yet offers a framework for further reflection. Both Merleau-Ponty's and Levinas' ontological-phenomenological intersubjectivity and interactional subjectivity based on Hegel's model of the master-slave dialectic, recognition and desire are (rhythmically) involved in a smoothly ongoing psychoanalytic process. A difficulty in understanding the impact of intersubjective thinking in the psychoanalysis of children arises from a change in the style of the narrative of a case study in which the psychoanalyst is no longer self-evidently the centre.

Keywords: be coming-a-subject in the life cycle, child analysis, ontological phenomenology, philosophy of intersubjectivity, recognition, style of the intersubjective narrative
