Donations to InternationalPsychoanalysis.net

Posted April 21st, 2014 by Tamar Schwartz
Categories: Announcements

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 »

Dear colleagues,

On the eve of the Boston Marathon, apart from the “Boston Strong” slogan, the only other current result is a 3 day traffic jam and getting to Boston is an impossibility. Also, we wonder re Jews in Ukraine but can’t do much about it, etc.. So.. . you will have time tomorrow to read the wonderful posts on our website, while the runners get to the finish line, hopefully all triumphant and the situation in Ukraine will be left murky.  Levity aside, this spring is seething with international political activity, as is our own Read the rest of this post »

Brief Review of Sheba & Solomon’s Return by Nathan Szajnberg, Reviewed by Ahron Freidberg

In the social sciences there tends to be an underlying tension between two distinct approaches to knowing:  The nomothetic, which is based in an effort to find laws that explain objective phenomenon, and the idiographic, which is based on understanding the unique, contextual and subjective meaning of a thing.  In Sheba & Solomon’s Return:  Ethiopian Children in Read the rest of this post »

Dear Colleagues,

given the charged global political atmosphere whether in Ukraine, where geography is destiny, Boston and it’s marathon remembrances, fatal shootings at Fort Hood or stabbings at high schools, a lost airplane seems to be losing significance and people are almost afraid to breathe the air or drink the water. To get away from from all the bad news, the international psychoanalytic website takes a more contemplative and philosophical Read the rest of this post »
