Donations to InternationalPsychoanalysis.net

Internationanalpsychoanalysis.net has flourished in a remarkable way since it was launched in January 2007. It has become both an archive and a news source.

One of the serendipitous outgrowths of its presence and has been that we have even more reasons to experience ourselves as a community with a history, elders, anniversaries, anecdotes, a paper trail, photos and relics of our founders — and evidence of our on-going growth and adaptation to a very changed therapeutic world.

But the growth has outpaced the cottage and one computer.

Are you able to contribute to the cost of our widening scope?

We will use contributions to internationalpsychoanalysis.net to scan and transcribe papers, search archives, find photographs format documents and upload recordings and videos. It is labor intensive and for me a labor of love [but for the helpers, indeed, work]. Read the rest of this post »

Understanding “evil”, definition of psychoanalysis, Nietzshe & more from Sasha Rolde on IP.net

Dear Colleagues,

It seems that the human race insists on having continued hostilities – whether it is attempting to sue a president locally, shooting down passenger airplane in the Ukraine or attacks verging on war in the middle east. Our international website for rue cannot keep up with it all, but it can have posts related to possible reasons for the global unrest, if not solutions. Even the weather is temperamental, but as I write, the northeast is enjoying a few beautiful days, just as the website has a few remarkably lovely post. Below I am listing some of my choices, followed by the full listing of this week’s posts.

1) Apropos the world chaos – please note the first Announcement Battling the Life and Death Forces of Sadomasochism at CFS.
