TL;DR: The field metaphor transforms Kleinian relational theory into a radically intersubjective theory as mentioned in this paper, which, in turn, places metaphor at a point along the spectrum of dreaming, to paraphrase Bion, it is the stuff of analysis.
Abstract: Each of the principal psychoanalytic models is underlain by certain key metaphors. For example, the archaeological and surgical metaphors, as well as that of the analyst-as-screen, all throw light on some of Freud's basic concepts. In classical psychoanalysis, however, metaphor still tends to be an illegitimate or secondary element. Analytic field theory, on the other hand, reserves a completely different place for it, both as an instrument of technique in clinical work and as a conceptual device in theoretical activity. Metaphor and the field are linked in a chiasm: The field metaphor transforms Kleinian relational theory into a radically intersubjective theory, which, in turn, places metaphor at a point along the spectrum of dreaming—to paraphrase Bion, it is the stuff of analysis. For the sake of illustration, we examine first the origins and meaning of the field metaphor in analytic field theory; we then consider the mutual implications of this particular development of post-Bion psychoanalysis and th...

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors describe how Bion Field Theory (BFT) can become an oneiric psychoanalytic tool in the mind of the analyst working with inaccessible states of mind and the violence of nameless turbulences.
Abstract: Abstract What kind of functions does a theory carry out in the analyst’s mind at work? The author tries to describe, using a few analytic trailers, how Bion Field Theory (BFT) can become an oneiric psychoanalytic tool in the mind of the analyst working with inaccessible states of mind and the violence of nameless turbulences. The hypothesis expressed is that BFT, as described in the works of its principal authors (Ferro, Grotstein, Ogden et.c), seems to evoke a psych-O-analysis that chooses O as psychoanalytic vertex, developing the bionian idea of unconscious as psychoanalytic function of the mind. BFT introduces explains and illustrates an oneiric model of the mind and of the analytic cure. The priority given by this theory to the contact with emotional experience and the capacity to stay at one ment with the unknown emotional experience circulating in the hic et nunc, seems, in author’s analytical experience, to promote both the development of an authentic analytic Self and analytic ethic and a process of subjectivation in analyst, patient, analytic experience.
