“To approach the Other in conversation is to welcome his expression, in which at each instant he overflows the idea a thought would carry away from it. It is therefore to receive from the Other beyond the capacity of the I, which means exactly: to have the idea of infinity. It also means: to be taught.”
— Emmanuel Levinas

Please join us for the first of what promises to be another stimulating year of SFCP Scientific Meetings. This year's series gets underway with a program featuring a main presentation by Mitchell Wilson, MD and discussions by Maureen Katz, MD and Marcus 'Bo' Houston, MD. Among other themes, this evening will begin an exploration of otherness, asymmetry, responsibility and care in the analytic relationship — all of which we will revisit from several perspectives over the next nine months. We look forward to welcoming you back to the conversation.

Please feel free to submit proposals for upcoming programs.
Michael Levin, Scientific Meeting Chair
