Bion in the nursery. The Three steps of an intersubjective theory
The author analyses Bion’s works evolution in regard to the relation between intersubjectivity and symbolization. Three books mark this evolution: Experiences in groups, Learning from experience and Attention and Interpretation. Firstly intersubjectivity is the field of symbolisation, secondly the condition of it and thirdly the cause of it, they are both so closed that they are condemned to move together. The same vignette, each time interpreted, illustrates in a nursery these three progressive manners to consider intersubjectivity.
