“The central thesis is that the three models of the mind, the neurophysiological one of Freud, the quasi-theological one of Melanie Klein and the epistemological one of Bion, can be superimposed upon one another to form a continuous line of development. This line develops an apparatus for mental life which embraces meaning and emotion within the framework of a structural concept of the mental apparatus, allowing for a limitless area of discourse concerning an infinitely variable non-causal system with a capability for growth beyond the scope of Darwinian evolutionary modes.” (Meltzer, D. 1981)
Donald Meltzer was an American analyzed by Melanie Klein and a member of the Kleinian track of the British Psychoanalytic Society. The above statement presents Meltzer’s unique viewpoint of the psychoanalytic lineage from Freud, Klein to Bion. In his own vision, Meltzer stays true to Freud's, KIein's, and Bion’s language while amplifying revising and creating new concepts. The Claustrum, beyond clinical claustrophobia, explores the detailed mapping of inner/outer geographic compartment locations of the inner mother and the mental apparatus. His last works, gathered in The Apprehension of Beauty, elaborate his thoughts on aesthetics in psychoanalytic discourse.
After this course participants will be able to:
Analyze the location of psychical experience within the geographic dimension of the Mental Apparatus
