What does living together mean? Renowned and established psychoanalyst Vittorio Lingiardi discovers the art of living with others but, first and foremost, with ourselves. Living with others begins within us; living together with our inner self requires crossing bridges built – often with great effort – across the fragmented archipelago of our own identity.
Set at the sweet spot between relational abilities and interpersonal chemistry, we can imagine living together as the overlapping of different levels of psychic experience: living with me, with you, with others. These are the three levels supporting Vittorio Lingiardi’s essay on the need to explore, and beauty of exploring, the complex and the multiple: the difficulty of living together with every “we” that makes us up; acknowledging the other, especially a loved one, in the flow of fractures and repairs; living in the world, seeking flexible solutions amidst curiosity and fear, nostalgia and change.
