Click Here to Read: Freud, the Wolf Man and the Encrypted Dynamism of Revolutionary History Tom Goodwin in the European Journal of Psychoanalysis.
The international psychoanalytic website is brimming with more historical material as it pertains to psychoanalytic thinking and development as the events were happening, be it their influence on Heidegger, Freud, Lacan and others, and on our theory – as in child development.
Spurred on by recurrent war efforts, this material is timely once again. Please note that I have attempted to avoid posing announcements of events which I had listed in the past few weeks, to avoid repetition.
My choices this week are:
1) For a detailed and personal documentary on how our own life experiences affect our work as psychoanalysts please read “Steven Kuchuck sits down with Tracy Morgan of the podcast New Books in Psychoanalysis” in the Audio/Video Category.
