A TALK BY DONNA ORANGE, PhD, PsyD

LEVINAS FOR CLINICIANS:  WHY?

 

       Emmanuel Levinas, philosopher, Talmudist, and survivor of five years in a Nazi labor camp, challenged the whole direction of western philosophy, upon which most of our psychoanalytically-oriented therapies have built themselves.  Theories of unconscious motivation, taught to practitioners so that they could engage in helping to “make the unconscious conscious,” formed the basis of a practice that was itself based on a search for the kind of objectivizing, naming, and reducing that Levinas called “totalizing.”  Instead of this murderous knowing, he believed that we meet the other, “the widow, the orphan, and the stranger,” in a relation of infinite responsibility.  The face of the other speaks, saying : do not kill me, do not allow me to die alone.  The ethical response is: me voici, hineni.  We will discuss some clinical implications of this shift in attitude toward our work.

Come and join our faculties and students for an intimate discussion integrating these provocative ideas that bring together philosophy and clinical practice
