  • Kunz Chairs Levinas Psychology Conference

    September 1, 2010

    Psychologists and 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.

    Dr. Paul 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.
