Abstract

Kierkegaard’s psychological thought has always been acknowledged as very rich—Reinhold Niebuhr hailed him as the greatest psychologist of the soul since Augustine—and has had a major influence on Heidegger, Sartre, and existential psychoanalysis. Nevertheless, his accomplishment has not always been fully appreciated, in part because it is so scattered across his works. As Vincent McCarthy demonstrates in Kierkegaard as Psychologist, Kierkegaard was pursuing “psychology” before there was a formally recognized academic field bearing that name, and a coherent thread runs through the so-called pseudonymous works. McCarthy elucidates often-difficult texts, highlights the rich psychological dimension of Kierkegaard’s thought, and provides an introduction for the nonspecialist and a commentary on Kierkegaard’s psychology that will interest both specialists and nonspecialists, while engaging in rich comparisons with such figures as Freud and Heidegger.

Abstract

Sempre più spesso ci imbattiamo in giovani che manifestano nuove forme di disagio. Le classificazioni diagnostiche non mancano, anzi si aggiornano rapidamente e si moltiplicano in modo esponenziale sotto la categoria del “Disturbo di o della…”, che implicitamente rinvia alla necessità di trovare modi e mezzi per tacitarlo se non, addirittura, estirparlo. Genitori e Servizi sono spesso impotenti di fronte alle nuove forme del disagio contemporaneo, dove gli ideali che un tempo riuscivano in qualche modo a offrire delle soluzioni collettive o a temperarne l’angoscia hanno perso valore. Così il disagio si manifesta sempre più nella sua urgenza e l’unica soluzione possibile è la richiesta di interventi volti a “normalizzare” il comportamento del minore, interventi che spesso finiscono per acuire il disagio stesso e le modalità in cui ciascuno lo esprime. L’esperienza delle istituzioni che si rifanno alla psicoanalisi di Jacques Lacan rovesciano, invece, la prospettiva comune. Il disagio prima di tutto è una forma di appello, non un disturbo, e il comportamento che lo rivela è la parola, sebbene ridotta al torsolo, spesso mal formulata o espressa tramite agiti. Occorre ascoltarla nella sua declinazione singolare per farsi partner di ciascuno in modo unico, ritessendo relazioni di fiducia e sostenendo le invenzioni singolari che ognuno riesce a mettere in campo per trasformare il disagio in qualcosa d’altro. Quanto testimoniato in questo volume parte dalle esperienze di accoglienza di minori in diverse istituzioni, per introdurre una riflessione sul soggetto contemporaneo e abbozzare un discorso politico critico sulla spinta all’omologazione sempre più presente e offerta come l’unica possibile in una società che continua, invece, a dichiararsi democratica e globalizzata.

Abstract

This publication, which includes contributions from German, French and American academics, pays tribute to the multi faceted researcher Ernst Kris (1900 Vienna -1957 New York) from the perspective of different disciplines. In fact one needs three job descriptions to chart his output: art historian, psychoanalyst and communication scientist. At 22, Kris had concluded his art history studies at Vienna University with a doctoral thesis on the technique of casting from life in the late Renaissance, and had worked as a curator at the Kunsthistorisches Museum. By the middle of the 1920s he had already met Sigmund Freud and started an analysis – which made him slowly turn away from classical art history. In this period he developed his most interesting and fruitful texts, which founded his reputation as an art psychologist: his studies on the early classicist sculptor Franz Xaver Messerschmidt (1932/33), the text “On the psychology of caricature” (1934) and the small book he co-authored with Otto Kurz: “The Legend of the Artist” (1934). In 1938, immediately after the “Anschluss”, Kris followed Freud into exile in London, and in 1940 he moved with his family to New York. Here he initially devoted himself primarily to questions of communication science, setting up working groups to analyse the propaganda of the Axis alliance with astonishing speed. Later he taught at the New York Psychoanalytic Society and Institute, concentrating on child psychology. He set up research units at the Yale Child Study Center and from 1945 he edited the newly founded journal “The Psychoanalytic Study of the Child”. He died in New York, highly respected as an important advocate of Ego-Psychology. Thus Kris developed, partly through choice and partly by force of circumstance, a multi-disciplinary approach which is more in demand than ever today: due to the broadening of art history into a science of images, the questions that a psychologically aware communication science is confronted with today, and the recent understanding of psychoanalysis as a form of cultural investigation. Bearing this view of Kris in mind, the contributions to this publication review his writing in a newly critical way, place it in its historical context and highlight what it predicts. The publication opens up Kris’ work, which is still, unjustly, only known through some key terms in the disciplines he covers.

Abstract

This volume tells the story of the case study genre at a time when it became the genre par excellence for discussing human sexuality across the humanities and the life sciences. A History of the Case Study takes the reader on a transcontinental journey from the imperial world of fin-de-siècle Central Europe to the interwar metropolises of Weimar Germany, and to the United States of America in the post-war years. Foregrounding the figures of case study pioneers, and highlighting their radical engagements with the genre, the work scrutinises the case writing practices of Sigmund Freud and his predecessor sexologist Richard von Krafft-Ebing; writers such as Leopold von Sacher-Masoch and Weimar intellectuals such as Erich Wulffen. There result new insights into the continuing legacy of such writers, and into the agency increasingly claimed by the readerships that emerged with the development of modernity—from readers who self-identified as masochists, to conmen and female criminals.

Abstract

From 1968 to 1991 the acclaimed film theorist Christian Metz wrote several remarkable books on film theory: Essais sur la signifi cation au cinéma, tome1 et 2; Langage et cinéma; Le signifiant imaginaire; and L’Enonciation impersonnelle. These books set the agenda of academic film studies during its formative period. Metz’s ideas were taken up, digested, refined,reinterpreted, criticized and sometimes dismissed, but rarely ignored.

This volume collects and translates into English for the first time a series of interviews with Metz, who offers readable summaries,elaborations, and explanations of his sometimes complex and demanding theories of film. He speaks informally of the most fundamental concepts that constitute the heart of film theory as an academic discipline – concepts borrowed from linguistics, semiotics, rhetoric, narratology, and psychoanalysis.

Within the colloquial language of the interview, we witness Metz’s initial formation and development of his film theory. The interviewers act as curious readers who pose probing questions to Metz about his books, and seek clarification and elaboration of his key concepts. We also discover the contents of his unpublished manuscript on jokes, his relation to Roland Barthes, and the social networks operative in the French intellectual community during the 1970s and 1980s.

Abstract

The letters between Sigmund Freud and Karl Abraham constitute one of the most important correspondences of Freud. Karl Abraham was an important and influential early member of Freud's inner circle of trusted colleagues. As such he played a significant part in the establishment of psychoanalysis as a discipline. Regarded by Freud biographer Ernest Jones as one of the best clinical analysts among his contemporaries, he also contributed important elaborations and developments of Freud's theories. In 1965, there appeared a first, censored and incomplete edition of this correspondence. In 2002, a completed edition came out in English translation. The present publication will be the first complete edition of this major correspondence in the original German, All letters, postcards, telegrams, notes, and enclosures that have been preserved and could be found are reprinted without omissions or pseudonyms. Added are both editorial and text-critical footnotes, plus an introduction and an appendix with pertinent additional material. It is now possible to explore first-hand the complex relationship that existed between Freud and his master pupil, and to follow their exchange on theoretical and clinical matters, but also on family members, their various travels, political and historical events, etc., and on their combined and individual relationships with other colleagues, such as C. G. Jung or the members of the so-called Secret Committee around Freud. This substantial and absorbing collection of letters enables the reader to gain valuable insights into these two pioneers of psychoanalysis, into the history of the psychoanalytic movement, and into the development of both Freud's and Abraham's theories. Due to the length of this correspondence (appr. 900 pages in print), this edition will appear in two volumes.

Abstract

In this book, Thomas J. Connelly draws on a number of key psychoanalytic concepts from the works of Jacques Lacan, Slavoj Žižek, Joan Copjec, Michel Chion, and Todd McGowan to identify and describe a genre of cinema characterized by spatial confinement. Examining classic films such as Alfred Hitchcock's Rope and Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, as well as current films such as Room, Green Room, and 10 Cloverfield Lane, Connelly shows that the source of enjoyment of confined spaces lies in the viewer's relationship to excess.  Cinema of Confinement offers rich insights into the appeal of constricted filmic spaces at a time when one can easily traverse spatial boundaries within the virtual reality of cyberspace.

Abstract

Die Psychosen stellen die Psychoanalyse vor große Probleme, vor denen sie lange zurückgewichen ist. 14 Autoren, alle Mitglieder der lacanianisch orientierten Gruppierung »Assoziation für die Freudsche Psychoanalyse«, zeigen, dass eine fruchtbare Arbeit mit Psychotikern möglich ist. Erforderlich sind eine genaue Kenntnis der Strukturen und Methoden, die sich vom klassischen Setting unterscheiden. Die psychoanalytische Arbeit mit Psychotikern stützt sich auf ein kreatives Potential, das sich in künstlerischen Produktionen zeigt, von denen einige in diesem Band dargestellt und kommentiert werden. U.a. mit Beiträgen von Antoine Mooij, André Michels, Marianne Schuller, August Ruhs, Peter Widmer.

Abstract

Ausgehend vom Konzept des Mangels, der den Menschen grundlegend vom Tier unterscheidet, stellt das Buch dar, wie sich das dem Andern der Sprache ausgelieferte Subjekt gleichwohl orientieren kann. Der Bodenlosigkeit der Sprache stehen Körperbilder gegenüber, deren Ursprung im Andern des Spiegelbildes liegt, in dem sich das werdende Subjekt entdeckt. Seine Reflexion führt es auf seine unsichtbaren und körperlichen Seiten diesseits des Spiegels zurück; sie befähigt es auch zu Kreativität. Dabei fließen Körperbilder (Gestalten, Gesichter, Hände etc.) in verwandelten Formen als Matrix, als Schablone mit in Wahrnehmung, Verhalten, Erkenntnis, Schrift ein: Realität konstituiert sich als eine anthropomorphe. Ein abschließender Teil geht der Frage nach, wie zerstörte Körperbilder vor allem in Psychosen restrukturiert werden können.

Abstract

Psychoanalyse hat unsere Kultur mitbestimmt, einiges aus ihrem Vokabular findet sich in der Alltagssprache. Sie provoziert die Wissenschaften und regt das Denken in verschiedenen Disziplinen bis heute unvermindert an. Doch das Begriffsinventar, die Denkfiguren und die Forschungs- und Anwendungsfelder der Psychoanalyse sind nicht ohne weiteres verständlich und erfordern eine Hinführung. In diesem Buch werden aus unterschiedlichen Praxen der Forschung und Arbeit (der Kur, der Therapie, der Kulturwissenschaft, der Literaturwissenschaft, der Übersetzung und der Philosophie) grundlegende Begriffe entfaltet: Einfühlen, Unbewußtes, Symptom, Hysterie, Sexualität, Übertragung, Perversion. Jeder der Themenbeiträge nimmt seinen Ausgangspunkt bei einem entsprechenden Textausschnitt aus den Werken Freuds und Lacans.
