Abstract

To what extent can the psychoanalytic dialogue help us to define and perhaps practice what Foucault called a "new relational mode," or, in Adam Phillips's terms, a new way for human subjects to be present to one another? This question is addressed in a discussion of Patrice Leconte's film, Intimate Strangers, and Henry James's The Beast in the Jungle (a work cryptically referred to in Leconte's film). The analytic exchange and the work of art can both explore the possibility of a relational context that needs potential being. What is the viability of that context outside of art and analysis?
