Robert P. Hyatt Poteat and Psychoanalyis
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
In this essay I will argue that Poteat clears post-critical ground for the discoveries of Freud the “humanist,” the practice of psychoanalysis, and for the legitimacy of Freudian psychological reflections on human development. I maintain that Poteat considered Freud to be a great genius, dimensions of whose work illuminate the human condition in a most profound way. Freud was a fascinating subject for Poteat because he exemplified many of the philosophical commitments of the Enlightenment that Poteat meant to critique. Further, I argue that several contemporary psychoanalytic theorists are allies in Poteat’s battle against the philosophically corrosive effects of Cartesiansism.

Allen R. Dyer Madness as Metaphor: Therapeutic Implications of Post-Critical Thought
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
Poteat often spoke of our modern predicament as “madness.” His use of this term was not strictly technical, but he meant it most emphatically. Modern thought created an alienation of self from lived-through experience, which had to be recovered through careful examination of the assumptions of the regnant culture. Polanyi and the post critical enterprise offered a perspective and certain tools for this recovery of self, which may properly be understood to be “therapeutic” both in the metaphorical sense and with the understandings that might be offered by the psychoanalysis and psychotherapy.

Ellen Bernal Health Care Ethics Consultation: Personal Knowledge and Apprenticeship
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
The intellectual history of Healthcare Ethics Consultation embraces objectivism and its emphasis on knowledge that has already been achieved. As a result, official descriptions, standards, and guidelines for this practice, while valuable, ordinarily exclude consideration of the ethics consultant in the process of knowing. Narratives of complex cases, including those that have led to perceived errors, are signs that point to Michael Polanyi’s notion of personal knowledge. The writings of Polanyi, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, and William H. Poteat support a paradigm shift to “post-critical thinking,” opening new avenues for ethics consultation teaching and learning, particularly in the setting of clinical internships.

Sam D. Watson Writing into the Post-Critical: The Mindings Collage
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
The Mindings Collage offers a corrective of the discarnate and corrosive “critical thinking” image which dominates our institutionalized language, culture, and education. The Mindings Collage provides rationale and directions for a disciplined practice to help persons recognize and exercise their own distinctive minds.

Richard C. Prust Poteat and the Challenge of Identifying Persons
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
William Poteat’s work is suggestive of an account of personal identity. The reflexive use of “I” in “I shot the sheriff ” places the act of shooting the sheriff in the context of a story—the story of the agent who reflexively refers to himself as “I” —that contextualizes its significance. Thus, I argue, Poteat shifts the logic of inferences about persons and their acts from the standard Aristotelian category logic to a character logic that represents them as mutually implied and their moments as mutually inclusive.

Sam Mann Reflections of a White Ghetto Preacher on the Life and Teachings of Dr. William H. Poteat
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
W.H. Poteat’s critique is that the Western white way of knowing, “gone mad on Descartes,” led to the corruption of Western culture. The author was inspired by his personal relationship with Poteat and the resonance of Poteat’s teaching—“The whole thing must be rethought”—with Howard Thurman’s corresponding account of a culture profaned by slavery in need of transformed relationships— “We are made for each other.” Consequently, the author entered a 40-year career as a white minister and Preacher at the (Black) St. Mark Union congregation in Kansas City, Mo.

Ronald L. Hall Critical Recollection: Poteat’s Polanyian Exercises
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
In this essay I explore two basic questions that arise from the fact that William H. Poteat subtitled his last book, Recovering the Ground, “Exercises in Critical Recollection.” The first question is: why does he call these dated remarks recollections? The second question is: why does he call them “critical” instead of “post-critical?” I speculate on answers to both of these questions in ways that I think throw light on Polanyi’s post-critical project. In answer to the first question, I suggest that Poteat is providing the “from” element in Polanyi’s “from-to” distinction a much needed historical emphasis since what we attend “from” is always much more than the parts in an epistemic whole. In my answer to the second question, I offer a view of criticism that is post-critical insofar as it calls us to turn around (to be converted) from critical philosophy’s neglect of history and its correlative loss of the world of the things. Poteat is trying to tell us that attention to memory and recollection is a way of subverting discarnate reflection, the best way to return us to the world.
