Welcome from the Editors:
“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 sixth issue of Other/Wise. We invite you to discover a journal dedicated to psychoanalysis, and to the creative arts. We offer psychoanalytic articles that may be scholarly, theoretical, clinical, research oriented, from all psychoanalytic outlooks. We feature creative work such as short stories, poetry, visual art, and music that illuminate internal unconscious process or any aspect of the human condition that engages us from a depth perspective .
We continue in our dedication to offering a vision reflecting that of the International Forum for Psychoanalytic Education, exemplified in the annual interdisciplinary conferences that IFPE sponsors. We value creativity, originality, depth of thought, and dialogue.
Learning is a reciprocal pleasure. Other/Wise is interactive; you are invited to participate in ongoing dialogue by using the feature that allows you to respond to each article published in each issue. Learn, enjoy, participate in the conversation!
Other/Wise will continue to feature articles that focus on clinical material, in “Entering the Consulting Room”, and articles that focus on the personal journey, in “Autobiographical Discoveries: Our Psyches, Our Selves.” We will offer these sections as we receive material for them.
Articles and creative works should be submitted electronically to Merle Molofsky, email@example.com.
