Dear Colleagues,

On the eve of the IPA Congress in Boston, I know that you are preparing yourselves for the trip and may not have the time to read all the posts on the international psychoanalytic website this weekend, so please bring your laptops and read while you are en route or here.

Historic events are occurring around the globe with Iran, Greece, China and in the USA where the president is visiting prisons. Change is in the air. Be part of it.

My choices on the website are:

1) Apparently joining the list of otherwise famous with Heidegger is the architect
Le Corbusier as a Fascist. Obviously one’s talents do not necessarily coincide with one’s political ideology.
