I’m a psychoanalyst in private practice and this blog is part of a notebook of sorts I keep to think through some of what I find interesting, challenging, provoking, and/or simply worth thinking about in psychoanalysis as a theory and a practice.
The blog’s earlier content was primarily focused on the works of Deleuze and Guattari and on their often tense but no less enriching contributions to the field of psychoanalysis.
Recently, I’ve become increasingly more fascinated by Winnicott’s work especially around the sensibilities he harnessed and tried to communicate in the last book he published, Playing and Reality.
I have a hunch that there might be a fair bit of interesting material to uncover in the overlap I see between the anti-oedipal project of Deleuze and Guattari and the post-oedipal project of Winnicott, between machine and found object, between becoming and transitional space.
It is in the direction of mining that material that the blog is now heading.
