Your last on this thread seems to be associating TSE's essentially aesthetic
use of the
idea dissociation in the phrase "dissociation of sensibility" with its much
different use in the phase "a dissociative personality"or "dissociation of
personality". Since TSE's use was extended to all poetic work within a
literary era and the psychiatric or psychoanalytic use is individual, not
literary and not limited to any era, it appears to me that these are
mutually exclusive usages. Eliot in "The Varieties of Metaphysical Poetry"
(see Eliot's preface and Ronald Schuchard's intro page 10) goes on to
associate his ideas with a human wide
"disintegration of intellect' in the 19th and 20th century which he
attributes to increases in world knowledge. His ideas seem specific to a
developing theory of cultural history.
If my assumptions are correct I would be very interested in a synopsis of
your justification for a linkage. Where are you expecting to publish?
