Becoming a Subject

Marcia Cavell (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter begins with a discussion of the intersubjectivist position: the view that a creature develops the capacity for thinking in a specifically human way only in community. It introduces the concepts of normativity and the necessity of a real, shared world in which a triangulating relationship can take place, to give an idea of the space in which thought arises. It then considers triangulation in psychological studies of infant-child engagements.

Keywords:   normativity, triangulation, thought, reality, psychoanalytic theory
