This book reviews some of the recent developments and controversies in psychoanalytic theory and technique. Gathering together both previously published articles and extensive new material, it examines such issues as the new psychoanalytic views of homosexuality, bisexuality, and the influence of gender in the analytic relationship. The author explores the application of psychoanalysis to non-clinical fields, including the problem of psychoanalytic research and its clinical implications, the validation of psychoanalytic interventions in the clinical process, and the challenges of psychoanalytic education. He shows how psychoanalysis can be helpful in addressing such cultural problems as socially-sanctioned violence, and asserts the continued relevance of object relations theory and its compatibility with Freuds dual drive theory.
The psychoanalytic theories of both Freud and Erickson are similar in many ways, but Erickson recognized a wide range of outcomes from the eight developmental stages that being different from Freuds five stages.. Freud believed that development in the first six years occurred in the three stages (Stassen). Freud believed that each stage focused on sexual pleasure that came or originated from a particular part of the body. For a newborn baby the oral stage is where the infant would use the mouth, tongue and gums to focus on pleasures from that area and how to experience the new world through this medium of pleasure. Feeding as an infant if one of the primary rituals that occurs for the first many months of a babys life, where Freuds theory would explain the wants and needs of a smoker that is still unconsciously stuck in the oral stage of life.. The next stage of Freuds theory is the anal stage that occurs from one to three years of age, where the toddler pleasures from retaining and ...
Presents, in Lacanian terms, an integration of psychoanalytic theory in which the battery of key Freudian concepts - from the dynamics of the Oedipus complex to the ego, id, and super-ego - are seen to intersect in Freuds most far-reaching and speculative formulation of a drive towards death.
The Interpretation of dreams is a 1903 book by Sigmund Freud, a pioneer of psychoanalytic theory, where the author presents his interpretation of dreams with reference to the Oedipal Complex. The Oedipal Complex was a theory that was used in the later works of Freud and the study of dreams, but the concept itself has been around for much longer. The Oedipal Complex is concerned with how children interpret their parents actions in relation to their unconscious sexual desires. The Oedipal Complex theory is still widely accepted by psychoanalytic theory today ...
The ultimate aim of forensic psychotherapy is like any other psychological intervention for offenders: to help the offender accept responsibility for his offense and, by acknowledging both agency and ownership of the offense, reduce the risk of future violent acts.21 The most effective psychological therapies are associated with increased agency and more coherent self-narratives,22 and in the forensic context, with the recovery of mental health combined with ownership and responsibility for risk to others.. Early psychoanalytic theorists argued that psychoanalysis could not be used to help violent and antisocial people. However, a few early notable psychoanalysts in both the United States and the United Kingdom, such as Karl Menninger and Edward Glover, were interested in applying psychoanalytic theory to understanding and treating such individuals, leading to the development in both countries of clinics that addressed both the psychodynamic assessment and treatment of forensic patients. Some ...

This book uses clinical psychoanalytic theory to illustrate how early British Gothic fiction reveals undercurrents of psychopathological behavior. It demonstrates that psychological insights gained from Gothic romance anticipate the later scientific findings of psychoanalysis. Chapters consider the division of the Gothic novels critical reception between allegory and romance; how the structure of early British Gothic romance parallels Freuds notion of the uncanny; the genres perverse origins in Walpoles The Castle of Otranto; sexual differentiation and the parallel between development of Gothic romance an development of the psyche; Ann Radcliffe and the terror of hysteria; Matthew Lewis and obsessional neurosis; and the confusion between self and other in Hoggs The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner.. ...
McCune Conference Room, 6020 HSSB. In this talk Benjamin brings together her psychoanalytic theory of the Third together with her experience with dialogue in the Middle East and with colleagues involved in post-war reconciliation in Rwanda, South Africa and Chile. She suggests ways in which we can think about deep psychological structures in both collectives and individuals that lead to fear-based hatred of the Other. Why is it so hard for some of us to meet the urgent call of victims? Why do some political movements, as we see in the present, engage in denial or even destructive attacks on those who are vulnerable? The historical efforts to redress this find that we may be in a struggle over whose suffering is considered worthy of attention. In such cases we find the imaginary position to be Only one can live. This fantasy may underlie the fact that in some instances where people are subjected to great suffering and helplessness this makes them and their injuries appear threatening to those ...
Because most psychiatric illnesses are complex phenomena, no single method or approach is sufficient to explain them or the experiences of persons who suffer from them. In The Concepts of Psychiatry S. Nassir Ghaemi, M.D. argues that the discipline of psychiatry can therefore be understood best from a pluralistic perspective. Grounding his approach in the works of Paul McHugh, Phillip Slavney, Leston Havens, and others, Ghaemi incorporates a more explicitly philosophical discussion of the strengths of a pluralistic model and the weaknesses of other approaches, such as biological or psychoanalytic theories, the biopsychosocial model, or eclecticism.. Ghaemis methodology is twofold: on the one hand, he applies philosophical ideas, such as utilitarian versus duty-based ethical models, to psychiatric practice. On the other hand, he subjects clinical psychiatric phenomena, such as psychosis or the Kraepelin nosology, to a conceptual analysis that is philosophically informed. This book will be of ...
This is the first full-length exploration of psychotherapy for those who have experienced the loss of a baby during pregnancy or in the first few weeks of life. Using many case reports, Irving G.

Sara Lindheim, Associate Professor of Classics, earned an undergraduate degree in Classics at Amherst College and a graduate degree in Classics at Brown University. Her research focuses on Latin poetry of the Augustan Age, primarily through the lens of gender and psychoanalytic theory. Her first book, Mail and Female: Epistolary Narrative and Desire in Ovids Heroides, explores the representation of feminine desire in the collection of poetic letters from heroines of ancient myth and literature to the heroes who have abandoned them. She has just finished a book that explores the ways in which Latin elegiac poetry, widely defined as ranging from Catullus to the exilic epistles of Ovid, participates in a new cultural preoccupation with space that emerges in the late Republic and becomes an obsession with Augustus consolidation of power and empire.. Graduate Supervision: ...
The Apostle Pauls writings have been a seminal influence on western philosophy since the middle of the first century. In recent years, however, it is the figure of Paul himself that has become clay in the hands of western philosophical, political, and psychological speculation. Starting with the period between the World Wars, Paul the man-as read in selected portions of his texts and through various critical lenses-has become the poster child or whipping boy of nearly every variation of continental philosophy, political theology, psychoanalytic theory, and identitarian movement. In Enactment, Politics, and Truth: Pauline Themes in Agamben, Badiou, and Heidegger, author Antonio Cimino brings clarity to this larger conversation by isolating the Pauline theme of pistis as a way of limiting the conversation partners. This leads him to Martin Heidegger, Alain Badiou, and Giorgio Agamben. While the conversation is by no means confined to these three, it is their work on the theme of pistis that ...

Some psychoanalytic researches are reviewed here to give an overview of how ideas on prenatal life and psychoanalytic ideas on ego-formation got tentatively together during the last century and the first years of the new century. There is a large bow to Ferenczi who published his long paper Thalassa in 1924 after about ten years of thoughts on it that were shared by Maiello, Hidas and Raffai, and Wilheim. Certainly this bow is incomplete. However, we can see how prenatal life becomes more relevant in psychoanalytic research, too. ...

Just because times are good today doesnt mean they will stay that way. Great leaders know how to take favorable conditions and make them sustainable.
Companies face the impact of a globalized market. New economies are emerging fast. Mergers and acquisitions are increasing. Traditional market positions of companies are challenged. As a result leaders are confronted more and more with new and different ways of thinking, behaviors, motivations, and habits of people. As I stressed in an earlier post, being…
Humans seem to readily track their conspecifics mental states, such as their goals and beliefs from early infancy. However, the underlying cognitive architecture that enables such powerful abilities remains unclear. Here I will propose that a basic representational structure, the belief file, could provide the foundation for efficiently encoding, and updating information about, others beliefs in online social interactions. I will discuss the representational possibilities offered by the belief file and the ways in which the repertoire of mental state reasoning (...) is shaped by the characteristics of its constituents. A series of questions will be outlined concerning the representational skeleton of the belief file, sketching a possible structure that supports the rapid encoding and re-identification of belief related information. After analyzing the possible limitations of the belief attribution system, I will examine some of its characteristics that might enable a flexibility that is often ...
This problem would be better named the mind-brain problem. It is the problem of whether the mind IS the brain, or to be more precise, the problem of whether mental states ARE neural states. The average modern person holds a knee-jerk type-identity theory. In doing so he doesnt recognise the mind-brain problem as a problem.…

Self-care as a key to success. One of the most important things is to take time to recharge, as its the key to be successful. Sleep is not optional, according to Arianna. On our podcast, she already talked about the importance of sleep. At her virtual talk with Bits & Pretzels Editor-In-Chief Britta Weddeling, she also shared a little exercise to do during the day: Just take 60 seconds to reset - focus on your breath, on what you are grateful for, anything that is an antidote for stress.. Being 70 years old now, Arianna had a long and impressive career so far. Looking back, she learned that life is a combination of making it happen and letting it happen. And she doesnt have to do everything herself, as that is impossible. Its like in fairytales when you have helpful animals [...].

Leaders have to know the difference between what they want to get done and what is actually getting done. There is a relationship thats inverse between both of them. If you have plans in your mind, clear it out of your head and focus on now. Write it down someplace else so you will not let it interfere with your mind to the tasks at hand.. Successful leaders know how to listen to their employees and seek out their feedback on work issues. They can offer ideas that will help the business. Dont think twice about asking the opinions because youre afraid of getting criticized. Acknowledging issues and seeking a resolution lets them feel like they are able to trust you.. You should always show confidence and confident when interacting with others. Never conflate self-assurances with arrogance, instead it should be confidence.Sincerity can build a bridge of trust between you and the people you work under you. Insincerity is obvious to other people so make a habit of being honest and sincere when ...

What systems and processes will help this person thrive in their new role? Are they used to bootstrapping and fixing things themselves, or used to large infrastructures and deep resources to call upon?. Successful leaders often discover theyre much like the eHarmony of business-they embrace the art of matchmaking and introducing the right people to the right roles. Many will have to fail their way to eventual success-the key is how fast can you get there with as few divorces as possible.. ...

This issue of CC-AI attempts to present a combined view of current ideas concerning the understanding and development of systems with self-referential and evolutionary characteristics. In short, both of the traditional paradigms of Artificial Intelligence (AI), leading to the construction of symbolic or dynamic models of the mind-brain, are considered insufficient to tackle the understanding of cognitive systems. The modelling of biological systems is believed to pose the same sort of problem for the field of Artificial Life (ALife).. Traditionally, AI has been associated with a computational approach to cognition. Its models involve systems that manipulate symbols which stand for external observables _ a representational scheme. This manipulation follows computational rules, and has lead to the idea of mind as a program. With this approach, the particular substrate which implements symbols and rules is irrelevant as long as the desired computation is achieved. It is usually referred to as the ...
