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 »

Psychoanalysis/psychiatry/science/the brain and humanism on IP.net from Sasha Rolde

Categories: A Dangerous Method

Dear Colleagues,

The loss of life globally whether is is passengers in commercial aircrafts, soldiers and civilians in the middle east, mental health workers in hospitals, or just starving children and victims of infections – all seems uncontrollable. We all look for psychological explanations, and with that in mind I will give you my choices on the international psychoanalytic website as well as the list of contents. Perhaps we and the philosophers have an answer. Personally I am beginning to think that what is happening in the world is the primordial nature’s attempt to keep the human population down and manageable. Animals kill each other and survival of the fittest seems to have kept life on earth going. Any other ideas? Read the rest of this post »

Notes on Bel Kaufman and Sholom Aleichem by Merle Molofsky

SholemAleichemYouTube

I well remember when Bel Kaufman’s book came out, in the 1960′s, with that evocative title, “Up the Down Staircase, a title that somehow encapsulated everything about school as I knew it. I had three marvelous years at P.S. 208 in Brooklyn, fourth, fifth, sixth, and all the rest was up the down staircase….

The stories of Sholem Aleichem, which I read when I was very young, were a major influence on my worldview, my perspective, and my sense of my ethnic identity.

My favorite story was “A Yom Kippur Scandal”. I found two videos on YouTube, Part 1 and Part 2, a telling of the story in Yiddish, with English subtitles. Here are the links, for the curious. If the links don’t work, go to YouTube, type in Sholem Aleichem, A Yom Kippur Scandal, and you will have access to the videos.

Letter to the Editor of the London Review of Books by Estela Weldon

3estelawelldon

I was very interested to read Jacqueline Rose’s article on mothers since the main focus of my work as a psychiatrist has had to do with women who suffer from the strange feelings they have about their babies. In my book Mother, Madonna, Whore: The Idealisation and Denigration of Motherhood (1988), I argue that the main difference between male and female perverse action lies in the aim. Whereas in men the act is aimed at an external part-object, in women it is against themselves: either against their bodies or against objects of their own creation – that is, their babies.
