Anderson Discussion Paper by Arnold Richards

Dr. Anderson has offered a convincing argument that Freud’s Judaism was central to his creation of psychoanalysis. His perceptions that the difference between Jewish and Christian attitudes toward pleasure and sexuality, and between Jewish and Christian views about the moral weight of thoughts versus actions, had much to do with the way the young science developed, are especially on the mark. In that spirit, I would like to add another aspect of Freud’s Judaism that also influenced his work — that is, his ambivalence about it, about his own Jewishness, and about his Galician shtetl forbears (including his parents).

Freud was proud of his sense of himself as a cosmopolitan Germa Read the rest of this post »

Hilary Russell

Hilary Russell is the author of a chapbook of poems, Giving up the House (Mad River Press), The Anthology of American Poetry (Wayside Press), The Portable Writer  (Wayside Press), and, in a different mode, Building Skin-on-Frame Double Paddle Canoes (Berkshire Boat Building School Press). His poems have appeared in journals such as Ploughshares, Boulevard, The Beloit Poetry Review and George Washington Review.

Perhaps because he lived for thirteen years in rural Pennsylvania, where he hunted and fished with local people and loved both the land and the language, many of his poems are set in a fictitious town in Chester County, PA.His alter ego later became chair of the English Department of Berkshire School in Read the rest of this post »

The Body in Psychoanalsyis at PANY

PANY Scientific Program Overview

The program calendar and present overview can be found on the PANY website …

The 2013/2014 PANY Scientific program develops the theme of The Body in Psychoanalysis.
