Andrew Erdman, Michael Crocker
Classical attachment theory has yielded rich explanations for behavior by classifying attachment into "styles" such as avoidant and ambivalent. Modern attachment theory has deepened our understanding of these formations by integrating knowledge about affect regulation and cognitive narratives. In looking at how attachment manifests in the phenomenal, sensation-evoking world, we draw on the work of postmodern performance theorist Judith Butler and others to get a clarified picture not just of one's style of attaching but of the specific ways that attachment behaviors are rehearsed, repeated, and refined over time...

Lynn Perlman
This paper explores the apparent reluctance in the world to recognizing the sexuality of breastfeeding. It demonstrates the ways in which the experience of breastfeeding is desexualized and attempts an understanding of why this occurs. Breastfeeding is looked at from a psychobiological perspective and situates it within the complexity of female sexuality. Female sexuality is understood to have both maternal and erotic components. Maternal and erotic sexuality is examined from a hormonal, neurological, and anatomical perspective, in order to demonstrate the similarities...

Michal Tal
This paper focuses on the literary theme of the double (doppelgänger) as an artistic attempt at endowing suffering protagonists with a chance for redemption. Doppelgänger works feature a protagonist who encounters his or her double, or disintegrates into several self-parts. The paper investigates the question of whether literary doubelness may serve as a cure for the protagonists' suffering, or rather aggravates their initial suffering and introduces further causes of agony on their part. After discussing whether doubleness stems from the protagonists' wish to meet Kohut's self-object need for twinship, the paper analyzes stances of literary doubleness, either by split or by multiplication, that seem to be the source of their protagonists' sense of suffering...

Uta Gosmann
We tend to think of Narcissus as foolishly enamored with his own image, morbidly preoccupied with self-love. Yet when we study him closely in Ovid's Metamorphoses, he does not seem to recognize himself in the water but believes to be encountering another person; he appears lost to himself. Freud's theories of ego formation, narcissism, and melancholia are examined for explanations of this loss. In contrast to Freud, who believed that identification with the lost object facilitates the subject's separation from it, identification is redescribed as a mechanism preserving the (imaginary) union with the object...

Merle Molofsky
As transsexual and transgender identity and experience have emerged from the outer boundaries of sexual identity and have become part of mainstream awareness of the full potential for sexual self-definition, cultural response has ranged widely. Responses include acceptance and approval; moderate levels of anxiety concerning perceptions of gender, sexual identity, and sex; obsessive fascination with the "otherness," the "not-me-ness" of those identifying as transsexual or transgender; the desire of non-trans-people to co-opt the experience of trans-people without personal risk; alarm at the reification of gender roles in what some people hoped would be a non-gender-defined, gender-neutral future...

Carl Waitz
Borderline states have received comparatively little attention in Lacanian psychoanalysis due to the lower incidence of borderline pathology in France as well as Lacanian analysts' dismissal of the diagnosis. As Lacanian analysis has grown in North America, Lacanians have increasingly theorized about borderline states. This article provides a brief review of Lacanian literature on borderline states, emphasizing the works of Lucie Cantin, Raul Moncayo, and Jean-Pierre Lebrun. Their views are contrasted, and the author proposes that a new subjective structure is warranted for cases in which the mother plays a dominating role...

Dana Amir
The Hours, a film directed by Stephen Daldry in 2002, creates a collage of three women: Virginia Woolf, whom we meet in the year 1923, in the middle of writing what is to become the novel Mrs. Dalloway; Laura Brown, whom we encounter in 1951, in the midst of her reading the novel Mrs. Dalloway; and Clarissa Vaughan, who lives in New York in 2001 and who is affectionately called "Mrs. Dalloway" throughout the film. This paper's analysis focuses on this literary collage, including a writer (Virginia Woolf), a reader (Laura Brown), and a protagonist (Clarissa Vaughan), using André Green's idea of The Dead Mother Complex as well as Kristeva's and Pontalis's ideas concerning the melancholy of language in order to explain the specific attack on language and love that characterizes the film's main characters and that may explain their terminal choices...

Karen L Lombardi
This paper contrasts full passion with what I am calling empty passion. As examples of full passion, Melanie Klein's lovehate, Kristeva's maternal passion, Žižek's political passion, and the passion of friendship are discussed in relation to empty passion, a narcissistic desire to fill a lack or a hole at the center of being. This empty passion is related to the Lacanian demand to serve or to become the desire of the Other and to André Green's concept of the psychic dilemma of the Dead Mother. Clinical and literary examples of empty passion are provided as illustrations...

#11
Thomas Olver
The activist conjunction of sexual orientation and gender identity is questioned by demonstrating how the concerns of the transgender movement run contrary to an agenda of liberation from gender ideology. The confused vocabulary of trans discourse articulated in the language of somatic incongruence (so-called gender dysphoria) is exposed, using an analysis of the concept of somatic incongruence and the various interventions through which bodies are apparently restored to ideological congruence constructed upon, inter alia, gender, race, and age...

P Adams Sitney
The color contrast between the story the protagonist tells in Antonioni's Il deserto rosso and the rest of the film points to its oneiric significance. In it the otherwise unaccountable removal of the girl's bra is a clue to the repression of masturbation and menstruation latent in the recounted story.

William Buse
This critique of Lawrence Josephs's paper on sexual disgust offers an alternate understanding of what is meant by the term "relational." To this end, the work of Georges Bataille is appropriated toward a relational understanding of sexual disgust, both as it relates to the content of the phenomenon and as a model for investigation. The perspective adopted from Bataille is then applied to Josephs's clinical case material. The critique testifies to the need for a more expansive relational perspective, including cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural contact...

Fredrika Stjärne
This interview with Michael Eigen is a conversation about doubt, faith, and three influential men, on getting too excited when reading Freud, having a revelation come in a dream, and accepting mortality. It's about starting to write and breaking things down into smaller pieces, a need to play, the madness in all of us, and the basic rhythm of breaking apart and breaking through, and of letting the psyche sing.

Yaakov Roitman
The author presents a detailed clinical discussion of his work with a forty-year-old man and a ten-year-old boy in which he focuses on loss of self-object differentiation in the transference-countertransference experiences while he and these two patients were working with tyrannical internal objects (arising from in-tergenerationally transmitted trauma). In both of the analytic psychotherapies, the author experiences reveries in which a benevolent paternal figure lovingly supports a child's quest for independence...

Judith Zepf, Siegfried Zepf
The authors present a case history in which they investigate the psychic mechanisms behind the production and function of adolescent hallucinations against the background of Freud's framework and Laplanche's concept of enigmatic messages. They conclude that these hallucinations, although to all appearance psychotic, are basically neurotic in nature, and that both their content and hallucinatory form serve to protect the defense mechanisms with which parents ward off their unconscious conflicts.

Gary Ahlskog
Freud's objections to hypnosis have little relevance to modern approaches. Contemporary hypnosis has evolved beyond direct suggestion to include the suspending of critical thinking in order to allow the patient's unconscious mind to take over and make internal changes. Aspects of the author's experiences as a patient, trainee, and practitioner are noted by way of dispelling some common misunderstandings. The growing profession of hypnosis has support from research in neuroscience. A rapprochement with psychoanalysis may be possible...

Kathryn J Zerbe, Kathryn M Bradley
Drawing upon the classic use of physical hunger as both a concrete sign of and metaphor for deep emotional needs, this article elaborates upon the many layers of hunger the eating disorder patient experiences and narcissistic defenses commonly employed to deny them. The authors use two extended case examples that illustrate the arduous but worthwhile task of welcoming patients to "bring their hungers"-an invitation that calls clinicians to make contact with the patient's human desires, to repeatedly chip away at the omnipotence used to mask such cravings, and to provide a space for working through the inexorable limitations imposed by time and mortality...
