In Ovid’s version of the myth of Echo and Narcissus, the character Echo receives equal attention to her counterpart, Narcissus, yet she has been completely marginalised in the pervasive literatures on narcissism.

This afternoon gives equal voice to both parties through an introduction to Echoism from Donna Savery and thoughts on the current position of Narcissism within psychoanalytic discourse from Dany Nobus. The keynote papers are followed by a plenary discussion led by psychoanalyst, Professor Lesley Caldwell.

Donna Savery – Echoism: the Silenced Response to Narcissism

In her latest book, ‘Echoism: the Silenced Response to Narcissism’ Donna Savery explores the importance of echoism as a clinical entity and a theoretical concept. Savery draws upon her work with patients who have experienced relationships with narcissistic partners or parents, and have developed a particular configuration of object relations and ways of relating for which she uses the term echoism. She uses psychoanalytic theory and existential philosophical ideas to underpin her formulations and inform her clinical thinking.

Dany Nobus – Narcissus is Dead: Long Live Narcissism!

When Freud wrote his influential essay on narcissism in the Summer of 1913, he had not yet conceptualised the death drive. When he introduced the death drive in 1920, he did not return to his reflections on narcissism in order to analyse the tragic metamorphosis of Ovid’s Narcissus into a golden flower. In this paper, I shall review the position of Narcissus, and the eponymous human mental function, on the cusp between life and death, Eros and Thanatos. To illustrate and substantiate my argument, I shall primarily talk about … myself.
