This paper explores the concepts of tact and empathy in the context of the Freud–Ferenczi correspondence around Ferenczi’s “The Elasticity of Psycho-Analytic Technique” paper. It goes on to explore the problems that they encounter in the neighborhood of reconciling science and subjectivity, in relation to the work on personal knowledge of the Hungarian philosopher Michael Polanyi and concludes with some implications for psychoanalytic training.
