Transformations of self: a reading of the writings of Winnicott prioritizing processes and relationships

By Fania Goltsman Izhaki


Nesta tese, faço uma leitura dos escritos de Winnicott coligada à filosofia de Whitehead apoiada nas afinidades existentes entre estes autores. Realizo uma leitura que, ao contrário do que é usual nas exposições do autor, explicita pressupostos e sistematiza conceitos. Nela, priorizo a abordagem relacional e processual, aprofundo as descrições dos conceitos de self, meio ambiente, saúde, apropriação e transição e chego a delinear uma metapsicologia winnicotiana. A releitura dos processos de transformação de si daí resultantes potencializa a relevância das colocações de Winnicott para a clínica e para a teoria psicanalítica.In this thesis I perform a reading of Winnicotts writings allied with Whiteheads philosophy, supported by the existing affinities between these two authors. My reading, contrary to the usual way the author exposes his ideas, clarifies presupositions and systematizes concepts. In it I give priority to a relational and processual approach, treat in detail his descriptions of concepts such as self, environment, health, appropriation and transition and reach a delineation of a Winnicotts metapsychology. This will result in a re-reading of the processes of self transformations which in turn will enhance Winnicotts contributions for psychoanalytical practice and theory
