Psychoanalytic interpretation as research methodology

1935

Abstract

The article is concerned with particular methodological features of psychoanalytic interpretation as psychological research strategy. The main argument is that psychoanalysis tends to special cognitive attitude based on the idea of self-sufficiency of personal experience. The similar cognitive attitude is characteristic of the phe# nomenological and hermeneutic approaches. The particularities of psychoanalytic psychobiography are described and the symbolic nature of psychoanalytic language is argued. The value of incorporating more psychoanalytic interpretation into scientific psychology is discussed.
