Curiositas: Bion’s K-Link and the Study of Curiosity

Instructor: Enika Cocoli Bowen, PhD

The first of its kind, this elective class begins with an overview of Bion’s K-link. It then extends to additional sources from philosophy and theology spanning 25 centuries. From Socrates to the North African shores of St. Augustine all the way to us in the 20th and 21st centuries, this study will dive into the complex nature of curiosity, its benefits and shortcomings. The ultimate aim is the enrichment of clinical work as a whole and the therapeutic activity of each session.
