Dr. Hobson will speak with us on the nature and status of psychoanalytic knowledge. Does it (as some would express) belong to a non-scientific domain of meanings, not 'facts'? Or is that knowledge of facts at the core of the psychoanalytic enterprise founded upon a knower's particular relation with psychoanalytic objects of knowledge? Dr. Hobson will consider the facts of transference and countertransference, projective identification and the paranoid-schizoid position from this perspective.
