The Complexity of Being David

Dr Anthony Korner

Each self faces his, or her, own world. This encounter is experienced from the position of finite individuality: that is, of relative smallness. The situation is akin to that of the child, David, facing the giant, Goliath. In the global information age, the enormity of the worlds that individuals face has been magnified. As we develop, lives are shaped by affect and forms of feeling, perceived in the flux of lived interaction. We learn to live as-societies, or, in the face of overwhelming affect, we dissociate. Our mental balance is affected by exchanges with significant others. The interplay between associative, and dissociative tendencies, has implications for psychosocial integration, and function in the community. It is through association that self develops.
