LEONARD NIMOY: 1931-2015

Leonard Nimoy had enjoyed reasonable success before taking on the role of Lieutenant Commander Spock, the Vulcan science officer of Star Trek’s USS Enterprise. Nimoy’s performance in the 1964 pilot was not particularly auspicious, chiefly because of inauspicious scripting.. He played a minor role, and few of Spock’s famous signatures were evident except for his oversized elfin ears. (more…)

On The Passing of Fred Sander (from IPBooks)

LilSander



by Lawrence L. Schwartz

In honor of the passing of Fred Sander, one IPBooks’ first and favorite authors, We would like to again feature his book, Created in Our Own Images.com.

My own personal contact with Fred spanned the better part of a year in 2010 as the production manager and typesetter for this book. I found him always to be warm, enthusiastic, and welcoming with a fun-loving spirit, and open to discussing ideas as we shared several articles and links along the way–and some long phone conversations–whether relating tangentially to the book, or at times just for fun.

This book brought to light a long-forgotten comedy by W.S. Gilbert (of Gilbert & Sullivan fame) not published or produced since 1898, namely . . .

I am sorry to inform you of the death of Maurice (Ries) Vanderpol on October 19 at the age of 92. Dr. Vanderpol was an admired psychiatrist and psychoanalyst and an important voice over the decades for those who demonstrated courage and compassion during the Holocaust.

Dr. Vanderpol was born in Amsterdam. In 1942, during the Nazi occupation of Amsterdam, he went into hiding, together with his brother and mother, until 1945. In 1946, he immigrated to the United States. Having begun medical school in the Netherlands, he entered Boston University Medical School where he went on to complete his medical education. (more…)

Halloween, ambivalence,the Holocaust, therapy changes the brain from Sasha Rolde on IP.net

Friday, October 3rd, 2014

Dear Colleagues:

When I was growing up this day was a relifious holiday and was called “All Souls Day” . I don’t recall it being scary or threatening as in “trick”. It is interesting to me that the day, like so many things in the world, has morphed into a scary occurrence despite the effort to “give treats” exemplifying the ubiquitous ambivalence and the love/hate human condition.

I turn to the international psychoanalytic website this week to give you a sampling of my own choices as well as the entire menu. I see the above in many of the posts and hope that you will comment. N.B. As in the past, I have NOT included previous announcements, so please check them all.

My choices this week are:
