19: A Spirit of Inquiry: Communication in Psychoanalysis— Joseph D. Lichtenberg, Frank M. Lachmann & James L. Fosshage A SPIRIT OF INQUIRY COMMUNICATION IN PSYCHOANALYSIS ________________________ JOSEPH D. LICHTENBERG FRANK M. LACHMANN JAMES L. FOSSHAGE The clinical vignette described on pages 95 to 97 in chapter 4 was published previously as: J. Fosshage (1997), “Listening/experiencing perspectives and the quest for a facilitative responsiveness” in Conversations in Self Psychology: Progress in Self Psychology, Vol.

The analytic exchange is unique in that analyst and analysand have moments when they are like the scientist seriously asking meaningful questions. They have moments like the child playing with a toy as they play with an image in a dream. They have moments like lovers who have suspended thinking about love to experience fully their feelings. There are moments like enemies who have suspended rationality to experience more fully their angry feelings. And moments during which their hunger or physical pain or drowsiness overwhelm any exploratory intent.

Patients (and analysts as well) have a deep desire to be known, recognized, and appreciated for who they truly are. At the same time, no patient (and no analyst) escapes a desire to protect the privacy, the secret, of some aspect of self, conscious or unconscious, that is associated with shame, humiliation, embarrassment, or guilt. Traditionally psychoanalysis has privileged investigation of the wish not to be known. Self psychology has given greater emphasis to the wish to achieve recognition through being listened to empathically.
