Example text

Although Kohut noted that the “camera is, of course, a symbol of the eye—of being looked at, of looking” (p. 121), he did not mention that this device can also symbolize a fascinating, phallic apparatus. Its protruding lens may be conveniently stimulated to stick out even further simply by fingering the right button in the appropriate manner. This intriguing, corporeal extension is ever ready to rise to the occasion, pointing toward others who arouse interest. It can, therefore, stand not only for the eye but also, as the vernacular would have it, the one-eyed trouser snake (the pet name bestowed by some phallic aficionados on their favorite character in the oedipal drama).

The analysand lay intimately with his friend, whereas the older generation (analyst) was cast into the role of observer—a classic oedipal reversal. Flashing a camera now seems tame compared to springing this epiphany on his analyst. The patient’s overload of jealousy, excitement, exclusion, and homosexual anxiety appear to have been projected into the old man (analyst/father). Burdened by these highly charged evacuations, the elderly gentleman could scarcely contain the stimulation. His heart succumbed.

This substantial variance brings one face-to-face with the core problem in clinical inference—reliability—the question of whether two or more independent investigators can make the same judgment as to what is (and is not) present in a sample of data (Bolgar, 1965). Dramatic divergence between qualified observers raises disturbing questions pertaining to the nature, soundness, and scientific integrity of the psychoanalytic enterprise.
