N.19 - Truth and evolution in "O" in Bion's work

Truth as a therapeutic factor

Abstract

Truth – according to Bion – has a performative character; it can bring about transformations. Analysis is a “veridical process” that helps the patient become himself. In order for this transformation to positively occur, the search for truth must be tempered and guided by empathy. The therapist takes part in the veridical analytic process both with personal participation and benevolence.
