Works in Progress Seminar: Sex, text, ur-text: Freud’s Dora and the erotics of knowing
This presentation draws on the first of a series of three essays on the erotics of knowing. The textual preoccupations of Freud’s case history of Dora encourage the illuminating exploration of its intertexual relationship with a referenced literary source (Arthur Schnitzler’s Paracelsus), as well as with an occult ur-text (Émile Zola’s Une page d’amour). These two texts anticipate, and, I propose, suggest two of Dora’s interrelated subtextual themes: the erotics of knowing and the problematics of reality. These subtexts are condensed within the leitmotif of textual suggestion: a symbolic elaboration of the tension between the therapeutic potential of knowing at the heart of Freud’s project, and the corruptive suggestion and unleashed erotic desire that can undermine and destroy it.
Adele Tutter, M.D., Ph.D. is Assistant Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Columbia and University and faculty, Columbia University Center for Psychoanalytic Training and Research and the New York Psychoanalytic Institute.

She chairs the APsaA Artist and Scholar in Residence Committee, sits on the editorial board of The International Journal of Psychoanalysis, Psychoanalytic Quarterly, Psychoanalytic Inquiry and American Imago, and regularly contributes art criticism to the Brooklyn Rail. She is in private practice in Manhattan.
