Example text

This illustrates that the notion of invisibility cannot be imagined since it requires a consciousness with- or without content. Consciousness has yet to be perceived as a space. Athene intervenes to prevent Achilles from drawing his sword to slay Agamemnon, feeling violated because Agamemnon has robbed T H E O RY 21 him of Briseis. Athene’s action—the fact that she intervenes— becomes an expression of what we would now call “composure” (The Iliad, Book I, lines 190–251). Surely the act of “composing oneself” can be understood as a term for directing attention to the wounded, violated inner world and the emotions that will ensure.

As previously mentioned, the object of all psychoanalytic endeavour is to create actual and thereby psychic change, contributing a psychic novum, thus rendering the process actually creative. In his theory of transformation, Bion attempts to describe psychic change, to deliver a theory and practice of psychic growth. This is also his agenda in the theory of thought he elaborated already in the 1960s, when his attempt to distinguish between psychotic and neurotic thought becomes a model of thought in general.

This frequently takes place through reconstructions of the past, present or future by working with dreams, fantasies or actions as they are expressed in the reality presented to the analytical dyad. Learning takes place when innate pre-conceptions meet realizations (in the analyst) in such a manner that concepts are formed. Bion requires no fantasies about an evil breast, some terrible combined object in a primal scene, nor an uroboros, although these concepts may be used as analogies for the container/contained situation or the Ps<=>D motion.
