Jim Hall, Nelson Mandela, Freud & the social media from Sasha Rolde on IP.net

Dear Colleagues,

As I send you this week’s post on the international psychoanalytic website, I am glad that on the eve of the first New England northeaster of the season, you will all have the chance to give your time to these interesting articles. I hesitate to say that the world events seem to have calmed down , except of course for the death of Nelson Mandela and Jim Hall. Possibly it is the season when humanity Islows down its rapid race of constructiveness vs. destructiveness.
As usual I will try not to repeat previous postings, and give you my choices followed by the entire index.

1) Please read Dr. Richard Rubens paper on psychoanalysis and the tragic sense of life – another way of looking at what we do.
