The concept of time in Bion's "A Theory of Thinking".

Int J Psychoanal 2019 Apr;100(2):182-205

Società Psicoanalitica Italiana, American Psychoanalytic Association International Psychoanalytic Association.

A complex and subtle theory of time is at the heart of Bion's 1962 text "A Theory of Thinking." The central point is the differentiation of "conception" and "thought," psychic elements that in the infant are born respectively from experiences of satisfaction and frustration. These mnestic inscriptions should be understood as in dialectic relation with each other. Read More

After Coal: Affective-Temporal Processes of Belonging and Alienation in the Deindustrializing Nottinghamshire Coalfield, UK.

Jay Emery

Front Sociol 2020 28;5:38. Epub 2020 May 28.

Department of Urban Studies and Planning, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, United Kingdom.

This article advances conceptualizations of belonging and alienation among deindustrializing people toward (i) pluralistic temporal and (ii) affective processes. The focus is on belonging and alienation among a deindustrialized generation in the Nottinghamshire coalfield, UK, exploring how various affective-temporal processes mediate capacities, claims, and senses of belonging and alienation. Extant studies suggest that multiple temporal processes constitute deindustrialized places, particularly intergenerational transmissions, declarative memory, and place-histories. Read More

"From chemo to chemo"-the temporal paradox of chemotherapy.

Support Care Cancer 2021 Feb 22. Epub 2021 Feb 22.

Philosophy and Mental Health Unit, Department of Social Sciences and the Humanities, Poznan University of Medical Sciences, Poznan, Poland.

Purpose: To uncover the experience of time in women undergoing chemotherapy for ovarian cancer.

Methods: A combination of consensual qualitative research and Giorgi's descriptive phenomenology.

Results: The key phenomenon found and pre-reflectively organizing the patients' experience was the temporal paradox of chemotherapy-a sense of both acceleration and deceleration in between chemotherapy sessions that desynchronizes patients with the time of others. Read More

Healing time: the experience of body and temporality when coping with illness and incapacity.

Drew Leder

Med Health Care Philos 2021 Mar 18;24(1):99-111. Epub 2021 Feb 18.

Department of Philosophy, Loyola University Maryland, Baltimore, USA.

The lived body has structures of ability built up over time through habit. Serious illness, injury, and incapacity can disrupt these capacities, and thereby, one's relationship to the body, and to time itself. This paper focuses attention on a series of healing strategies individuals then employ on the "chessboard" of possibilities intrinsic to lived embodiment. Read More

The Temporality of Situated Cognition.

Front Psychol 2020 29;11:546212. Epub 2020 Sep 29.

Research Center Jülich, Institute of Neuroscience and Medicine (INM3), Jülich, Germany.

Situated cognition embeds perceptions, thoughts, and behavior within the contextual framework of so-called "4E cognition" understanding cognition to be embodied, enactive, extended, and embedded. Whereas this definition is primarily based on the spatial properties of a situation, it neglects a fundamental constituent: the cognitive situation as . On a subpersonal level, situated cognition requires the integration of information processing within a minimal temporal extension generating the basic building blocks of perception and action ("microlayer" of time).

Multiscalar Temporality in Human Behaviour: A Case Study of Constraint Interdependence in Psychotherapy.

Front Psychol 2020 20;11:1685. Epub 2020 Aug 20.

Centre for Human Interactivity, Department of Language and Communication, University of Southern Denmark, Odense, Denmark.

Ecological psychology (EP) and the enactive approach (EA) may benefit from a more focused view of lived temporality and the underlying temporal multiscalar nature of human living. We propose multiscalar temporality (MT) as a framework that complements EP and EA, and moves beyond their current conceptualisation of timescales and inter-scale relationships in organism-environment dynamical systems. MT brings into focus the wide ranging and meshwork-like interdependencies at play in human living and the questions concerning how agents are intimately entangled in such meshworks, utilising them as resources for skilful living.

A hermeneutic phenomenological exploration of 'last resort' in the use of restraint.

Int J Ment Health Nurs 2020 Dec 20;29(6):1218-1229. Epub 2020 Jul 20.

Department of Nursing, Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester, UK.

Restraining patients is a practice that dates back at least three centuries. In recent years, there has been a mandate and advocacy in various countries for organizations to shift towards the minimization of restraint, whereby its use is only as a 'last resort'. There is growing evidence internationally indicating the negative impact of the use of restraint. Read More

Putting on the Same Shoes: Lived Experiences of Women Who Are Reincarcerated.

J Forensic Nurs 2020 Apr/Jun;16(2):99-107

Author Affiliations: Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, College of Nursing, University of Manitoba.

Background: Women are discharged daily from correctional institutions across the world. Many of these women cycle in and out of jail and experience the "revolving door syndrome," characterized by release, reimprisonment, and subsequent rerelease into the community. Although many factors contribute to this phenomenon, there is limited understanding of its impact on imprisoned women, including their perceptions of returning to community life. Read More

'Between-time stories': waiting, war and the temporalities of care.

Laura Salisbury

Med Humanit 2020 Jun 27;46(2):96-106. Epub 2020 Apr 27.

Department of English and Film, University of Exeter, Exeter EX4 4QJ, UK

This article analyses how World War II shifted and contained embodied experiences of waiting in relation to broader ideas of lived time in modernity. The trench warfare of World War I has often been imagined as a limit experience of anxious waiting, but World War II produced compelling accounts of experiences of suspended time in civilian populations exposed to the threat and anticipation of 'total war'. This article analyses representations of this suspended present drawn from Elizabeth Bowen and Virginia Woolf, alongside materials in the Mass Observation Archive, to develop an account of how exposure to a future shaped by the potential of annihilation from the air reshaped experiences of durational temporality and the timescapes of modernity in the London Blitz.

Waiting like a girl? The temporal constitution of femininity as a factor in gender inequality.

Susan Pickard

Br J Sociol 2020 Mar 7;71(2):314-327. Epub 2020 Jan 7.

Department of Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology, University of Liverpool, Liverpool, United Kingdom.

This paper explores temporal constituents of the female self in terms of their role in underpinning ongoing gender inequality. Drawing on the work of Simone de Beauvoir and Iris Marion Young, together with sociological approaches to ambivalence, I suggest that these temporal subjectivities are embodied, arise from the split subjectivity associated with woman as simultaneously subject and object, and counterpose the neoliberal emphasis on "choice" and agency with a more traditional gendered "expectation," or "waiting" style. The dialectic between both temporalities, in which neither is hegemonic, results in a chronic state of ambivalence which impedes women's ability to fully project themselves into the future, a skill significant to planning and career ambition and the absence of which suspends women instead in an extended present.

Contemporary Artists' Books and the Intimate Aesthetics of Illness.

Stella Bolaki

J Med Humanit 2020 Mar;41(1):21-39

University of Kent, Canterbury, CT2 7NX, UK.

This essay brings together critical perspectives from the discrete traditions of artists' books and the medical humanities to examine artists' books by three contemporary artists - Penny Alexander, Martha A. Hall and Amanda Watson-Will - that treat experiences of illness and wellbeing. Through its focus on a multimodal and multisensory art form that has allegiances with, but is not reduced to, narrative, the essay adds to recent calls to rethink key assumptions of illness narrative study and to challenge utilitarian approaches.

What Hand Transplantation Teaches Us About Embodiment.

Brock Bahler

AMA J Ethics 2019 11 1;21(11):E996-1002. Epub 2019 Nov 1.

A lecturer in the Department of Religious Studies at the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania.

While stakeholders in hand transplantation (HTx) recognize the importance of assessing quality of life (QoL), QoL has historically been inadequately defined and measured in such assessment procedures. Current conversations related to QoL in HTx could be enhanced by a phenomenological account of the lived body-namely, by illuminating the ways in which humans develop a holistic QoL through meaningful orientation in their interactions with the world and others. This meaningful orientation involves many factors; this essay considers how QoL is shaped by temporality (how past and future inform present satisfaction), embodiment (habituated, generally unconscious, meaningful attunement to the world), and intersubjectivity (how our identity as selves is constructed through social relationships).

The "We-Ness": A Dasein-Analytical Approach to Group Therapy.

Psychopathology 2019 8;52(2):110-116. Epub 2019 Aug 8.

STDP, Addiction Department, ASUR Marche AV2, Jesi, Ancona, Italy,

Beyond the language of medicine and psychology, the essence of many psychopathological experiences remains something that cannot be explained, even if it is possible to perceive it. Phenomenological language in this case must adapt itself to the heart of the lived experience. The phenomenological attitude, in particular, allows us to grasp something that happens before (a priori) the distinction between subject and object. Read More

Addressing Internalized Weight Bias and Changing Damaged Social Identities for People Living With Obesity.

Front Psychol 2019 26;10:1409. Epub 2019 Jun 26.

Obesity Canada, University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB, Canada.

Obesity is a stigmatized disease due to pervasive personal, professional, institutional, and cultural weight bias. Individuals with obesity experience weight bias across their lifespan and settings, which can affect their life chances and significantly impact health and social outcomes. The objectives of this study were to: (a) explore weight bias and stigma experiences of people living with obesity; (b) develop counterstories that can reduce weight bias and stigma; and (c) reflect on current obesity master narratives and identify opportunities for personal, professional, and social change.

Experiences of integrated care: reflections on tensions of size, scale and perspective between ethnography and evaluation.

Gemma Hughes

Anthropol Med 2019 Apr 4;26(1):33-47. Epub 2019 Feb 4.

a Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences , University of Oxford , Oxford , UK.

An in-depth case study of integrated health and social care provides the empirical basis for this exploration of tensions between ethnography and evaluation. The case study, developed from a two year period of fieldwork, is based on ethnographic data of individuals' experiences of living with multiple long-term conditions, their experiences of integrated care, and integrated care commissioning practices. Narrative and phenomenological analysis show how temporal aspects of ethnographic fieldwork contribute to producing knowledge of patients' experiences. Read More

Τhe multiple temporalities of deep brain stimulation (DBS) in Greece.

Med Health Care Philos 2019 Sep;22(3):353-362

Department of History and Philosophy of Science, University of Athens, Koritsas 31, Moschato, 18345, Athens, Greece.

This contribution intends to explore patients' lived experience, with a focus on the temporal dimension. On the basis of a qualitative study that led me to interview persons with Parkinson's disease (PD), caregivers, and medical professionals, I develop an empirical and philosophical investigation of the temporalities surrounding the implementation of deep brain stimulation (DBS) in Greece. I raise the issue of access to DBS medical care, and show how distinct temporalities are implied when the patients face such a matter: that of linear time, linked with the medical discourse, the bureaucratic time linked to administrative and financial hurdles in the implementation and maintenance of DBS, and the technological time of the body/technology fusion.

Living a Life Full of Pain: Older Pain Clinic Patients' Experience of Living With Chronic Low Back Pain.

Qual Health Res 2018 07 30;28(9):1434-1448. Epub 2018 Mar 30.

1 University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa, USA.

Chronic low back pain (CLBP) is older adults' most common pain complaint and is associated with many physical and psychosocial consequences, which have been quantitatively examined. However, little research has qualitatively examined the experience itself of CLBP in later life. Study objective was to understand older adults' lived CLBP experience. Read More

Toward a clinic of temporality?

Geriatr Psychol Neuropsychiatr Vieil 2017 Dec;15(4):425-433

Groupe de recherche sur les communications, Interpsy EA4432 Psychologie, Université de Lorraine, Nancy, France.

The discovery of time cells has expanded our knowledge in the field of spatial and temporal information coding and the key role of the hippocampus. The internal clock model complemented with the attentional gate model allows a more in-depth understanding of the perception of time. The motor representation of duration is ensured by the basal ganglia, while the cerebellum synchronizes short duration for the movement. Read More

Sleeping while disabled, disabled while sleeping.

Benjamin Reiss

Sleep Health 2016 09 4;2(3):187-190. Epub 2016 Jul 4.

Emory University, Atlanta, GA. Electronic address:

This essay considers areas in which the study of sleep and sleep disorders might profit from the perspective of disability studies, as practiced in the humanities and social sciences. This interdisciplinary perspective considers the social and cultural dimensions of bodily and mental states and conditions that a particular society deems abnormal or impaired, as well as the lived consequences of those determinations. Some sleep disorders are considered disabilities, but almost all disabilities entail some disruption from normal sleeping patterns--whether because of physical pain, exhaustion, and emotional stress of facing obstacles in work and other areas of waking life, or challenging sleeping environments in which many disabled people live.

In one's own time: Contesting the temporality and linearity of bereavement.

Health (London) 2019 01 10;23(1):58-75. Epub 2017 Aug 10.

University of Westminster, UK.

This article explores the experience and meaning of time from the perspective of caregivers who have recently been bereaved following the death of a family member. The study is situated within the broader cultural tendency to understand bereavement within the logic of stages, including the perception of bereavement as a somewhat predictable and certainly time-delimited ascent from a nadir in death to a 'new normal' once loss is accepted. Drawing on qualitative data from interviews with 15 bereaved family caregivers we challenge bereavement as a linear, temporally bound process, examining the multiple ways bereavement is experienced and how it variously resists ideas about the timeliness, desirability and even possibility of 'recovery'.

Relationships between neighbourhood characteristics and current STI status among HIV-infected and HIV-uninfected women living in the Southern USA: a cross-sectional multilevel analysis.

Sex Transm Infect 2017 12 7;93(8):583-589. Epub 2017 Mar 7.

Department of Behavioral Sciences and Health Education, Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

Objectives: Neighbourhood characteristics (eg, high poverty rates) are associated with STIs among HIV-uninfected women in the USA. However, no multilevel analyses investigating the associations between neighbourhood exposures and STIs have explored these relationships among women living with HIV infection. The objectives of this study were to: (1) examine relationships between neighbourhood characteristics and current STI status and (2) investigate whether the magnitudes and directions of these relationships varied by HIV status in a predominantly HIV-infected cohort of women living in the Southern USA.
