		ORGANIZING PSYCHE:  NONLINEAR CONTRIBUTIONS TO
		PSYCHOANALYTIC THEORY AND PRACTICE

			May 19-21, 1995

			Mohonk Mountain House
			New Paltz, New York

	Abstract:  Since its inception, psychoanalysis has
	labored under the nineteenth century assumption that,
	like other physical and biological systems, the
	psyche seeks and requires equilibrium, originally
	furnished by external organizers, in order to operate
	rationally in a largely disorganized world.
	The last two decades have witnessed the rise of novel
	paradigms that speak of "self-organization" within
	the physical and biological domains.
	This First Mohonk Conference on the Self-organizing
	Psyche will consider the implications of this
	paradigm shift for psychoanalytic theory and practice.
