Abstract:  Recent Psychoanalytic writings have revised classic psychoanalytic models of the unconscious to take account of what we now recognize as the intersubjective nature of mind.  This presentation reviews the way intersubjective theories have effected our understanding of the origin and nature of mind and the implications for our clinical work.  Beginning with Freud's Topographical and later Structural model, this presentation looks at how some of Freud's most basic concepts were reworked and reconceptualized by the French psychoanalyst Jean Laplanche and the Italian analysts departing from and expanding on the ideas of Wilford Bion so as to take account of the intersubjective foundations of human consciousness.
