Dear Colleagues,

On the eve of the IPA Congress in Boston, I know that you are preparing yourselves for the trip and may not have the time to read all the posts on the international psychoanalytic website this weekend, so please bring your laptops and read while you are en route or here. We hope that the richness of the website will supplement your experience at the meetings. Historic events are occurring around the globe with Iran, Greece, China and in the USA where the president is visiting prisons. Change is in the air. Be part of it.

My choices on the website are:

1) Apparently joining the list of otherwise famous with Heidegger is the architect
Le Corbusier as a Fascist. Obviously one’s talents do not necessarily coincide with one’s political ideology.

Click Here to Read: Oliver Sacks, who has taught us so much, now teaches us the art of dying by Ranjana Srivastava on the Guardian website on July 25, 2015.

But Oliver Sacks shows us an approach that views life as a welcome gift rather than bemoaning death as a medical failure.  ‘Every doctor aspires to be a little like Sacks whether for his sharp intellect, his obvious humanity or his exquisite writings that go to the core of what it means to be human and frail.’ Photograph: Adam Scourfield/BBC/AP Photo/AP
