22 22 Body–Mind Dissociation in Psychoanalysis At its inception, psychoanalysis had a revolutionary view of the individual as grounded in her body and its instinctual nature, thus granting the connection with the actual body much more prominence than it was to have later on with the development of object relations theory. Bion provides a lapidary summary of the initial psychoanalytic revolution when he states “The inescapable bestiality of the human animal is the quality from which our cherished and admired characteristics spring” (1970: 65–​66).

L: It’s your feelings that are circulating, your hatred that’s circulating, when you’re willing to accept it and express it. It burns, but not so much as you tend to fear it will. An acceptable burning. A: I felt imprisoned when you connected the ear with feeling, imprisoned within my body. I prefer to escape from my body; for me it’s a prison. One sees from this sequence of dialogue that the analyst’s positive evaluation of the analysand’s ego resources, which the latter had generally tended to attack just as he did his physical functions (Bion, 1967c [1959]), had the effect of placing Antonio back within his bodily self.

Antonio revealed that when he placed himself inside his body he felt as though he were in prison, a prison from which he would usually escape (“I prefer to escape”) by activating an internal mechanism that excluded every form of recognition of his body. Antonio’s experience seems highly claustrophobic: being located within his body was felt to be inseparable from 32 32 Body–Mind Dissociation in Psychoanalysis the acceptance of limitation, which Antonio instead erased in order to move towards the undifferentiated condition of limitlessness.
