The unconscious connection in a group foulkes
The unconscious connection in a group (Foulkes):

Matrix

“The matrix is the hypothetical web of communication and relationship in a given group. It is the common shared ground which ultimately determines the meaning and significance of all events and upon which all communications and interpretation, verbal and non-verbal, rest” (1964, 292)

Foundation matrix

“I have accepted from the very beginning that even a group of total strangers, being of the same species and more narrowly of the same culture, share a fundamental mental matrix (foundation matrix). To this their closer acquaintance and their intimate exchanges add consistently so that they form a current, ever moving and ever developing dynamic matrix” (1990: 228).


Foulkes can be seen as an early communicational theoretician of unconscious processes.

Tentative definition of unconsciousness i
Tentative definition of ‘Unconsciousness theoretician of unconscious processes. ’ I

In a descriptive way unconscious are all phenomena that the symbolically mediated communication of group members is not focussed on. (Mies)


Tentative definition of unconsciousness ii
Tentative definition of ‘Unconsciousness theoretician of unconscious processes. ’ II

Dynamically unconscious in a group analytic perspective are relations of symbolic violence,

those scenes and communicational acts that are excluded by these relations from the ongoing communicational process.

By symbolic violence this exclusion appears as condition of group membership and the capacity to communicate.
