‘Intersubjectivity: Husserl, Group Analysis, and Being human’

"The early 20th century philosopher, Edmund Husserl, asked himself two traditional philosophical questions: how do we know that there is a real world? And how do we know that other people exist? But his answer was less traditional: because of empathy. Empathy is one explanation for 'intersubjectivity' (another is some variant of a collective unconscious). Intersubjectivity is now considered to be a foundation of psychotherapy in many different approaches, but it has been central to group analysis, where it has been termed ‘the matrix’, for nearly 70 years. In Digby's talk he will consider the strands that link Husserl to group analysis and to the relational psychotherapies by way of one of the patron saints of Europe and of recent fMRI studies."

Professor Digby Tantam is co-founder of The New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling. He has worked as a psychiatrist in the NHS for over forty years and as a University Professor for over twenty. In addition to being the Deputy Principal of NSPC, he is an Emeritus Professor at the University of Sheffield and has an honorary appointment at the University of Cambridge.
