“The secret of the psychoanalytic method is the very engagement of a discourse wherein the fixity and certainty of any proferred epistemic configuration are dislodged… what psychoanalysis offers, the subject is thus its discourse as Otherwise.”
Barratt, B. (1993) Psychoanalysis and the Postmodern Impulse: Knowing and Being Since Freud’s Psychology. Johns Hopkins University Press: Baltimore (p. 42).
Welcome to the fourth issue of Other/Wise. We warmly welcome Susan Flynn to the Other/Wise Working Group.
Our two new sections, introduced last issue, continue, with engaging and original contributions. We expect “Entering the Consulting Room,” featuring articles that focus on clinical material, and “Autobiographical Discoveries: Our Psyches, Our Selves,” featuring articles that focus on the personal journey, to be an integral ongoing part of Other/Wise.
Other/Wise continues to feature artwork, poetry, and short stories that illuminate internal unconscious process or any aspect of the human condition that engages us from a depth perspective.
We believe that learning can be a pleasure. Learn, enjoy, and please participate in our ongoing dialogue by using the feature that allows you to respond to everything published in each issue of Other/Wise.
Articles, art work, poetry, and short stories should be submitted electronically to Richard Raubolt, firstname.lastname@example.org.
