Some theoretical problems of the social nature of mind, as conceived by relational and intersubjective theories of contemporary psychoanalysis, are discussed. Intersubjective and radical socio-constructivist positions are criticized, and some of their self-contradictions are pointed out. In particular, the positions of Robert Stolorow, Stephen Mitchell and Donnel B. Stern are criticized, and the following topics, among others, are discussed: Mitchell’s relational approach; situationism in personality psychology; social behaviourism; the theories of Sullivan, G.H. Mead, and Cooley; Winnicott’s concepts of "true self" and "false self"; unconscious mental contents and motivation; Donnel B. Stern’s concept of "unformulated experience"; communicating versus experiencing; etc.
Keywords: Social nature of mind, socio-constructivism, intersubjectivism, contemporary psychoanalysis, theoretical critique
