psychotherapists will examine the work of Emmanuel Levinas at the annual
meeting of the Psychology for the Other Seminar, scheduled for October 22-24,
2010, at Seattle University. Emmanual Levinas, a French philosopher, and his
concept of the Other have had a major impact on the practice, research, and
teaching of psychology.
According to Professor George Kunz, conference chair, the primacy of the immediate therapeutic face-to-face
relationship that directly influences clinical practice and theories is the
major focus of Levinas’ ethical phenomenology.
Marcus, author of In Search of the Good
Life: Emmanuel Levinas, Psychoanalysis, and the Art of Living, is giving
the keynote address “Being for the Other:
Emmanuel Levinas, Ethical Living and Psychoanalysis,” on
Saturday, October 23. Marcus is apracticing
New York clinician and supervising and training analyst at the National
Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis.
