In the psychoanalytic tradition, both persons and things are called ‘object’. This lecture will focus on the latter - the material objects that play a psychic role not only in childhood development, but in the development of the personality later in life. In Jungian terms, the external object becomes a symbol when it represents some unknown inner object. The notion of 'evocative objects' also underscores the inseparability of thought and feeling in our relationship to things and our selves. Come explore some examples of the objects that evoke such strong emotions, memories, and even transformation.
