Analytic Psychocatharsis

... combining meditation with science

Das konjekturale Denken

 

Der Neandertaler war vom 'Oral- und Schau-Trieb' beseelt, was auch zu rituellem Kannibalismus führen konnte. Er konnte sprechen, wenn auch in reduzierter Weise. Doch so war auch seine Art zu denken anders als die des modernen Menschen. Sie war direkter, sehr unmittelbar vom Sinnesleben her bestimmt. Könnte man nicht beide Arten des Denkens miteinander verbinden und dies dann das konjekturale Denken nennen (Konjektur heißt Vermutung, es geht um ein Denken in – jedoch sehr präzisen, fast mathematischen – Vermutungen)? Der Philosoph P. Sloterdijk hat diesen Vorgang eine „Einheit von Wachen und Denken“ genannt und auf das griechische Wort sophronein (sich besinnen) zurückgeführt. All diese Betrachtungen führen letztlich dazu, das Verfahren der Analytischen Psychokatharsis anzuwenden.

CONJEKTURAL THINKING. Exercises in the Psychology of Perception and Self-Awareness. The Neanderthal Man disposed of an 'oral gaze', a type of LOOKING that was totally dedicated to the nead to eat (oral needs), and which reached as far as to ritual cannibalism. But, dedication requires to be expressed, or voiced, so a kind of SPEAKING was included. LOOKING and SPEAKING are basic drives, primal principles of the human being that are closely combined to each other. Were it possible to represent a very succinct formulation together with primal linguistics, then we would arrive at the Neanderthal Man's psychoanalysis. And with that, at a highly consolidated psychoanalytic method of practice. The theory and practice of such a method are described in scientific manner. The book was originally published in 2002 at the agenda Verlag, Münster, Germany and is in German language. In 2004 the book was completed revised and received a new title: Das Konjekturale Denken. A translation into English is pending. A website: www.psyche-und-soma.de has been dedicated to the subject. More information is found there - in English as well as in German.
