“Reading Rangell; Reading Analysis in the Second Half of its Centennial”
Book review by Nathan Szajnberg, MD
“The Rangell Reader,” Edited by Beth I. Kalish and Charles Fisher, IPBooks 2103

Ceci nes pas use pipe,” Magritte’s provocative title for his unsmokable pipe, could be morphed into a title for this book, “Ceci nes pas une Festschrift.  A Festscrift, Ben Bloom, professor of education at the University of Chicago, quipped of his own honor, is a way for former graduate students to increase the value of their degrees before the Professor dies.

Well, this is not this a Festschrift, although it looks like one.

How this book was born, its development, tells us about its nature, how best to grasp it. In 1997, some members of the San Francisco Psychoanalytic Society, facing growing internal tension Read the rest of this post »

Funding Request for Research Proposal:
The tragedy of 9/11 women who were pregnant and widowed and their infants
Beatrice Beebe PhD; Clinical Professor, NYS Psychiatric Institute, Columbia University
Acute traumatic loss has wide-ranging effects on ordinary individuals, especially parents and children, yet infants and young children are often forgotten in a disaster. In October, 2001, Beatrice Beebe, a mother-infant researcher and therapist, together with other highly trained therapists, began a therapeutic project to try to help these women and their infants born after 9/11. This project also had a research component. Mothers and infants were seen for a video-based therapeutic consultation. Because of our therapeutic involvement we have a unique set of videotapes of mother-infant Read the rest of this post »

Donations to InternationalPsychoanalysis.net

Posted October 4th, 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 »

“Stranger by the Lake”

Posted November 23rd, 2014 by hhstein
Categories: Movies

by Herbert H. Stein

If it had been originally in English, the title of the film, Stranger By the Lake, could easily be seen as a double entendre. Anyone who has seen the film would agree that it is, indeed, “stranger” by the lake, an all-male gathering place at which nudity, public sexuality and murder are accepted as commonplace. The other aspect of the double entendre is, of course, a reference to the stranger who is met by the lake, a place in which couples pair off, make love and fall in love with relative anonymity.

But that is if it had been originally in English. In fact, this is a French film, and the translators, presumably with the agreement of the film makers, applied that title to a film with the original title, L’Inconnu du Lac. I know from reading Camus in freshman French that The Stranger is L’Etranger in the original French. L’Inconnu translates literally as “the unknown.” Rather than remove the double entendre, this appears to add further layers of suggestion.
