They did so, not as naõÈve outsiders, but rather as trained psychoanalysts who founded revisionist institutes and schools of thought. The extent to which these clinicians were indebted to and allied with Freud and psychoanalysis is frequently overlooked, if not altogether forgotten. Indeed, the close relationship of Existential psychotherapy and post-Cartesian psychoanalysis 23 these pioneering existential±phenomenological clinicians to psychoanalysis is crucial to the theoretical and clinical ef®cacy of the existential tradition today.

In contrast to Freud, Sullivan, like Fromm, radically delimits biological drives or instincts, and emphasizes instead the importance of interpersonal relations. This is `the antithesis of any document of human instincts' (Sullivan 1950: 302). Thus, for Sullivan as for Fromm, the aim of psychoanalysis is not to make the unconscious conscious in the traditional Freudian sense, but to help patients develop new ways of relating to others and the world around them. In contrast to the classical psychoanalytic emphasis on neutrality and objectivity, interpersonal psychoanalysis sees mutuality as crucial to the therapeutic process.

The connection to Sartre was particularly important and Laing remains one of the few psychoanalysts to acknowledge a signi®cant debt to the French philosopher. In discussing the impact of existential±phenomenological thought on psychoanalytic revisionism, it would be remiss not to include the work of Jacques Lacan (1900±1981). Because Lacan is generally seen as a representative of the philosophical transition from French structuralism to post-structuralism, he is not commonly grouped with such clinicians as Binswanger, Fromm, or Laing.
