The symmetrical synchronic fractal transformations, T(F(SxS)), in the oscillation work between the individual unconscious and the collective unconscious


In this article, the author tries to present to the scientific community a fourth type of transformation to be added to those already proposed by Bion in Transformations (Bion 1965); this proposal is based on the integration suggested by the individual and group clinics of the points of view of four authors: Jung and Neumann, Bion and Matte Blanco, according to the model of a four-party foundation. The result of this integration is guaranteed by the simultaneous operation of several specific organizers: the principle of symmetry, synchronicity as a principle of acausal connections, the infinite sets represented by fractal objects, the super dimensional and transcendent vector spaces, the coincidence at a certain level Read more

The authors suggest a reflection on the use of the film and the context of the film theatre in connection with certain aspects of the analytic dialogue. Through a re-consideration of “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” by Robert Louis Stevenson and of five different film versions of the story, the essay investigates how the cinema has described the different and contradictory emotions felt by analysts when faced with patients who transform themselves before their eyes during a session. These reactions always require a reply that is specific in that it is the result of the analyst’s work as he receives and shares the point of view of the patient, and thus becomes able to accede to the many potential areas of the mind, or multiple states of the self, that are expressed in different ways. Following these lines of thought, the authors suggest that these films can act as devices that perform the same Read more
