Constructions and the Analytic Field questions the relationship
between psychoanalysis, history and literature. Does the analyst
help the analysand construct a narrative, or is their task more of
a historical reconstruction?
In seeking to answer this question, Domenico Chianese examines
Freud's writing, beginning with 'Constructions in Analysis' and
ending in 'Moses and Monotheism', as well as the impressions of
analytic method reflected in contemporary writers such as Thomas
Mann, and historical writings from both sides of the Atlantic.
Drawing on vivid and persuasive clinical examples, he argues that
psychoanalysis creates a 'scenic space' between analysand and
analyst, a theatrical space wherein the cast of the patient's
interior world enter and exit from the scene.
Drawing on the rich Italian psychoanalytic tradition, this
original approach to the analytic field will be of interest to
psychoanalysts, historians and literary experts.
