Becoming Freud

Becoming Freud is the tale of the younger Freud—Freud up till the age of fifty—that accommodates all of Freud’s many misgivings in regards to the paintings of biography. Freud invented a mental remedy that concerned the telling and revising of existence tales, yet he used to be himself skeptical of the writing of such tales.

On Freud's "Inhibitions, Symptoms and Anxiety" (Contemporary Freud: Turning Points & Critical Issues Series)

Along with constituting a basic milestone in modern Western suggestion, Sigmund Freud's huge corpus of labor laid the theoretical-technical foundations on which psychoanalysts established the development and improvement of the great edifice during which they abide at the present time. This edifice, so different in tones, so heterogeneous, even contradictory every now and then, has stood powerful as a result of those foundations.

The Suffering Stranger: Hermeneutics for Everyday Clinical Practice

Using the hermeneutics of Hans-Georg Gadamer and the ethics of Emmanuel Lévinas, The discomfort Stranger invigorates the dialog among psychoanalysis and philosophy, demonstrating how every one is trained via the opposite and the way either are bolstered in unison. Orange turns her serious (and medical) eye towards 5 significant psychoanalytic thinkers – Sándor Ferenczi, Frieda Fromm-Reichmann, D.

Antigone, in Her Unbearable Splendor: New Essays on Jacques Lacan's the Ethics of Psychoanalysis

A examine of Lacan’s engagement with the Western philosophical traditions of moral and political proposal in his 7th seminar and later paintings. With its privileging of the subconscious, Jacques Lacan’s psychoanalytic inspiration would appear to be at odds with the targets and strategies of philosophy.

Example text

In previous translations, and in this one as well, "psyche"—for which Jung in the German original uses either Psyche or Seele—has been used with reference to the totality of all psychic processes (cf. Jung, Psychological Types 3 Def. , it is a comprehensive term. "Soul," on the other hand, as used in the tech­ nical terminology of analytical psychology, is more restricted in meaning and refers to a "function complex" or partial personality and never to the whole psyche. , in this con­ nection it is used in the composite word "soul-image" (SeelenbiId).

But since there are two sides to everything, it is le­ gitimate to condemn this so-called "hanging on" as negative to life only if it can be shown that it really does contain nothing positive. The very understandable impatience felt by the doctor does not prove anything in itself. Only through infinitely patient research has the new science succeeded in building up a profounder knowledge of the nature of the psyche, and if there have been certain unexpected therapeutic results, these are due to the self-sacrificing perseverance of the doctor.

It is high time we realized that it is pointless to praise the light and preach it if nobody can see it. It is much more needful to teach people the art of seeing. For it is obvious that far too many people are incapable of establishing a connection between the sacred figures and their own psyche: they cannot see to what extent the equiv­ alent images are lying dormant in their own unconscious. In or­ der to facilitate this inner vision we must first clear the way for the faculty of seeing. How this is to be done without psychology, that is, without making contact with the psyche, is frankly be­ yond my comprehension.
