Learning: documenting map here. Already had interest in play-as-formative; looked up error correction in the brain, unexpectedly found a graphic about egocentric vs allocentric in map forming in the mind, which was influenced by: Donald Winnicott who was a middle-of-the-road between traditional british psychoanalysis (freud) and a more radical: Ronald Fairbairn who they would not teach for many years because he was so anti-Freud. HOWEVER, he had some who did, one of whom was John Sutherland who had several students, one of which was JD Laing who had a radically different view of mental illness – that it can be sometimes positively transformative – like religious experience – and itself modify behavior in a more natural way. So now I have a road map of this mornings surprise research – and lines to draw from to find parallels and maybe link to things I’d already read long ago to see what schools of thought I already belong to and don’t realize it.

So now I have a road map of this mornings surprise research – and lines to draw from to find parallels and maybe link to things I’d already read long ago to see what schools of thought I already belong to and don’t realize it.
This is right now my useful guide:
Is Fairbairn Still at Large?
Juan Tubert-Oklander
Ahh yes, this is definitely in my way of thinking
“There is not, and there cannot be, a “Fairbairnian school,” not only because Fairbairn´s personality was utterly inimical to disciple seeking, but also because his writings represent a permanent invitation for the reader to enter into a dialogue with him and to think his or her own thoughts.
Hence, there are no Fairbairnians, but only students and continuators”
Ok. I don’t remember exactly where how or why but I recognize this name as someone whose philosophy is “in the zone” of how I think, possibly a student or teacher of his or maybe himself. I’ll tag this for later to tie together.

“A philosopher whose ideas are more similar to Fairbairn’s is Maurice Merleau-Ponty (1945)”

Ok, I like Camus’ The Stranger in its view on friendship, although not the ‘giving up’ way – that is, I think Camus went further than I’d go. But it’s in the compatible family of my way of thought? yeah.

““Viewing Camus’s The Stranger from the Perspective of
W. R. D. Fairbairn’s Object Relations,” by Rainer Rehberger, of Frankfurt, is an essay in applied psychoanalysis.”
