Screening & Discussion of Francis Ford Coppola’s The Conversation with Helen K. Gediman at NYPSI

Wednesday, April 25th, 2018

Brill Library Film Series: Screening & Discussion of The Conversation with Helen K. Gediman, Ph.D.

Screening & Discussion of Francis Ford Coppola’s The Conversation Helen K. Gediman, PhD
Wednesday, May 23, 2018 7:30 – 10:00 pm The Marianne and Nicholas Young Auditorium 247 East 82nd Street, NYC

Francis Ford Coppola’s 1974 masterpiece, The Conversation, is the brilliant forerunner of films in the surveillance stalking genre in which professionals are paid to stalk. The incomparable Gene Hackman portrays a schizoid private investigator whose personality deteriorates under work-related personal guilt that breaks through his characteristic dissociative defenses. The surveillance technology of the Watergate era that sustain his fragile persona is uncannily prescient of present-day omnipresent hacking in Cyberspace. For chills and thrills in great cinema, come one and all.

General Admission – $15
Student Admission – $10

According to cognitive neuroscience there are at least two ways of knowing yourself: One, through integrating multimodal signals into an egocentric reference frame and assigning the first person perspective; another, through the cognitive ability to disengage from the embodied first person perspective and adopt another person’s perspective on your experience. These research traditions have progressed with relative independence in the field. For example, different paradigms examine feelings of body ownership and agency from a first person perspective (e.g. the Rubber Hand Illusion) versus third person perspective, self-recognition in mirrors. Inspired by psychoanalytic insights on development, Dr. Fotopoulou will present a set of behavioural and neuroscientific studies with healthy individuals, neurological patients with right-hemisphere damage, and patients with anorexia nervosa, putting forward the idea that first and third-person perspectives on the self dissociate and proximal, embodied experiences of affective congruency may act as the (more…)

9:30am – 10:45 am: Dr. Ron Britton (followed by audience Q&A)
The paper describes the evolution of so called post-Kleinian analysis and its current style as exemplified in the work of Ronald Britton. The development of a method of using psychoanalysis with young children largely based on the application of dream analysis to children’s play made considerable changes to adult analysis. A child case is described that illustrates manifest recapitulation in play of an immediate life trauma and its segregation from the primitive phantasy that existed in the child’s frightening dream life. The paper discusses some of Britton’s own ideas and those shared with others such as John (more…)

This panel will address a distinctly Latin-American perspective in psychoanalysis. Latin-American contributions to psychoanalysis have been of increasing interest in the age of psychoanalytic pluralism and, over time, they have come to be grouped together. Yet there is limited opportunity to study this collective contribution, especially where European, British, and North American psychoanalytic traditions prevail. To a greater extent than in other regions, psychoanalysis in Latin America has been characterized by an enthusiasm for object-relations theory, based largely on Melanie Klein’s depressive (more…)
