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 »
