DISAVOWAL AND CONSTRUCTIONS IN ANALYSIS, Workshop
Freud used the term Verleugnung, disavowal, in various texts, but defined it in the 1920s as a concept representing a specific psychic mechanism. This workshop will examine the way Freud develops this concept in his papers on “Fetishism” and “Constructions in Analysis” and in Moses and Monotheism, focusing on its clinical and cultural implications.
SUGGESTED READINGS: Freud, “Fetishism” (1927), “Constructions in Analysis”(1937), Moses and Monotheism (1939).
