Example text

The philosophical trend towards intersubjectivism that these developments reflected ran contrary to traditional German Idealism, which was built on the assumption of an abstract subject. The place formerly occupied by the abstract subject was now occupied by the actual human self. Martin Heidegger’s fundamental ontology is characterized by a similar turn from the abstract subject. In formulating a concept of origins, similarly, Buber (1954) replaced the originally philosophically isolated “I” with a “between” [Zwischen], describing the phenomenology that resulted from this substitution as a phenomenology of the encounter [Begegnung].

As a tool to help us obliquely grasp these phenomena, Winnicott uses the metaphor of the potential space as an area of play. For him, the essential element of play is the attempt to externalize inner reality upon a real object. For this to succeed, the external object must comply, so that it can be shaped and controlled in accordance with the inner reality. The implication of comparing potential space to an area of play is that potential space is framed as a sphere of illusion. For Winnicott, the potential space as area of play becomes the central metaphor for the work of psychotherapy: The general principle seems to me to be valid that psychotherapy is done in the overlap of the two play areas, that of the patient and that of the therapist.

The latter is now thought to have a much greater impact, but is not thought capable of being activated by narrative or by the interpretation of transference. By implication, the implicit mode is far more pervasive and potentially more powerfully organizing than is the explicit mode. The idea that therapeutic action can occur at the implicit level without verbalization is an important change for a theory of therapeutic action (Beebe & Lachmann 2002, pp. 216f). ) Such reconceptualizations of treatment theory, stimulated by findings from infant research, seem, in many respects, radical, in that, within these reconceptualizations, the significance of the INTERSUBJECTIVITY WITHOUT A SUBJECT?
