I was not a successful adolescent. I seemed strange to the other children and they were nasty to me. I became quite withdrawn and then I became severely anorexic, which is why I was taken out of high school, even though my plans for myself were all intellectual. I thought, “I’m going to be an artist and I’m going to be naturally a professor.” But the professor part happened in a sort of back-door way. It was a very, very, very important event for me, because it got me into psychoanalysis, which became important to my thought. I feel as though I learned how to think in psychoanalysis. And I recovered a self that could be in the world.
