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.”
Barrett, B. (1993) Psychoanalysis and the Postmodern Impulse: Knowing and Being Since Freud’s Psychology. Johns Hopkins University Press: Baltimore (p. 42).
Welcome to the seventh edition 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, and more, from all psychoanalytic outlooks.
Other/Wise offers two special categories, “Entering the Consulting Room”, featuring clinical work, and “Autobiographical Discoveries: Our Psyches, Our Selves”, featuring the personal journey. We publish creative works 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 seek the innovative, and we encourage the new and the adventurous. In this issue we are pleased to offer the work of two young college students, a short story by Silvio Montealegre, taking the classic 19th century short story “The Yellow Wallpaper” to a revelatory development, with accompanying art work by Nathazha Tassa.
The International Forum for Psychoanalytic Education values creativity, originality, depth of thought, and open dialogue, exemplified in the annual interdisciplinary conferences, and Other/ Wise is dedicated to that vision. Learning is a reciprocal pleasure, and we invite you to participate in ongoing dialogue by using the feature that allows you to respond to each article in every issue. Join the conversation!
Articles and creative work should be submitted electronically to Merle Molofsky at firstname.lastname@example.org.
