Complex Multiplicity and the Multiplicity Complex: A Relational Reflection in Honor of Ann Belford Ulanov

Cataldo, Lisa M.

Imagine being invited to a huge party, a gathering of theologians, philosophers, artists, mystics past and present, and just about everyone who’s anyone in the world of depth psychology. There is Freud conversing with Tillich, here is Jung in an exchange with Simone Weil and Mondrian, over there Theresa of Avila and Winnicott, chatting with W.E.B. DuBois and Augustine. Now imagine that this whole party is for you, that every one of these people wants to interact with you, to know you, to dance with you. It’s exciting. It’s a whirlwind. Truth be told, it is sometimes a bit scary, and often quite serious, but mostly thrilling. At the end of the party you will be asked, “how have you changed, and how will you now change the world?” Now you have a picture of what it’s like to study with Ann Ulanov.
