Discussion of W.I. Grossman’s and D.M. Kaplan’s: Three Commentaries on Gender in Freud’s Thought …

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

February 10, 1987. Discussion of William I. Grossman and Donald M. Kaplan’s: “Three Commentaries on Gender in Freud’s Thought: A Prologue on the Psychoanalytic Theory of Sexuality” at the New York Psychoanalytic Institute.

Dr. Grossman and Dr. Kaplan presented a prologue to [their] paper . . . on sexuality as exemplified by female sexuality in psychoanalytic thought. They believe that being aware of Freud’s three ways of talking about sex and gender—his “three commentaries”—is a helpful prelude to understanding his ideas. With respect to female psychology, some of Freud’s ideas were not technical. That is, the justification for what he wrote had nothing to do with the psychoanalytic method. His observations of allegedly female and male traits are examples of this, and form what the authors call the first commentary. In a psychoanalytic perspective, a trait is only of preliminary interest, because a trait fails to convey anything dynamic that is of differing significance . . . (1989). from the abstract in Psychoanalytic Quarterly, 58:179-180.

The full article is published in the book the book: Fantasy, Myth and Reality. Essays in Honor of Jacob A. Arlow Edited by H.P. Blum, Y. Kramer, A.K. Richards and A.D. Richards. Madison, CT: International Universities Press. 1988. pp. 538.

Psychoanalysts as Artists: Mervin Stewart

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

Psychoanalysts are known for their sensitivity to the suffering, conflicts, and inhibitions of their patients. What is less well known is that many are also sensitive and talented artists. To provide a forum for that expression and an opportunity for sharing those visions and talents with others, there was an exhibit entitled “The artistry of Psychoanalysts” which was held at the winter meetings of the American Psychoanalytic Association in New York at the Waldorf Astoria hotel. The show was open to Members, Affiliates, and Associates of the American and Members of the IPA and IPSO and included photographs, paintings, watercolors, and collages. I am very grateful for the opportunity to give each of the artists more exposure on the International Psychoanalysis.net. One piece from the show will be shown each week and, as you will see, we have a lot of talent among us. –Jon Meyer
