The Work of Michael Eigen, Into The Heart Of Psychoanalysis
This chapter presentation is from the recently published book, Living Moments, On the Work of Michael Eigen. Eigen, an internationally renowned psychoanalyst, recently received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Association for the Advancement of Psychoanalysis (November 2015).  The chapter concerns four central dimensions of his work: the boundless unknown, feeling, faith, and emotional transformation. Through an exploration of these dimensions, it will be shown how Eigen endows psychoanalysis with a heart both in its core subject matter (the heart of the matter) and in the passion, lifeblood, and humanity enlivening that subject matter (a heart of flesh). He develops this heart through a poetic style of writing, a unitary and dynamic, rather than atomistic, understanding of phenomena, and a paradoxical, multi-dimensional approach to phenomena.   Through endowing psychoanalysis with heart, Eigen transfigures how psyche itself is understood.

Learning Objectives
At the end of the session participants will:
1. Understand in detail the four central dimensions of Eigen's work: the    
boundless unknown, feeling, faith, and emotional transformation.
2. Understand the term heart and how it applies to Eigen's work.
3. Recognize the modes through which Eigen develops the heart in psychoanalysis.
4.   Recognize how Eigen re-envisions the psychoanalytic
concept of psyche.
