In 1967, Murray Bowen gave his epochmaking talk, to family therapists and researchers, about his attempt to ‘differentiate a self in his own extended family. Beckett’s entire short play Come and Go (1967), published in the year that Bowen gave his talk, was performed within the seminar* and discussed in terms of Bowen’s theory of ‘triangulation’.
