In this brief contribution I have sought to explore the intersubjective dimension of the un-conscious through a dialogue between psychoanalysis and modern neuroscience. I have exa-mined the interrelation between the body, the unconscious, the development of the self and intersubjectivity in infant mental development, expressed in the analytic process through our ability to deeply understand the unconscious states of the patient’s Self (verbal and nonverbal). Vittorio Gallese’s model of embodied simulation and neuroscientific findings I have referred to may represent an important neurobiological correlate of this unconscious dimension, thus further contributing to our/building on our understanding of early intersubjective dyadic pro-cesses and therapeutic factors involved in the analytic process.
Keywords: Body, unremoved unconscious, the development of the self, intersubjectivity
