Abstract

Architecture and Fire develops a conceptual reassessment of architectural conservation through the study of the intimate relationship between architecture and fire. Stamatis Zografos expands on the general agreement among many theorists that the primitive hut was erected around fire – locating fire as the first memory of architecture, at the very beginning of architectural evolution.&#xD;Following the introduction, Zografos analyses the archive and the renewed interest in the study of archives through the psychoanalysis of Jacques Derrida. He moves on to explore the ambivalent nature of fire, employing the conflicting philosophies of Gaston Bachelard and Henri Bergson to do so, before discussing architectural conservation and the relationship between listed buildings, the function of archives, and the preservation of memories from the past. The following chapter investigates how architecture evolves by absorbing and accommodating fire, while the penultimate chapter examines the critical moment of architectural evolution: the destruction of buildings by fire, with a focus on the tragic disaster at London’s Grenfell Tower in 2017. Zografos concludes with thoughts on Freud’s drive theory. He argues the practice of architectural conservation is an expression of the life drive and a simultaneous repression of the death drive, which suggests controlled destruction should be an integral part of the conservation agenda.&#xD;&#xD;

Abstract

This sixth and final half-volume of the Freud/Ferenczi correspondence covers the period from 1925 until Ferenczi's death in 1933. During that period, Freud works on revisions of psychoanalytical theory, on autobiographical and historical contributions, on religious topics and on his critique of civilization and culture, and on the development of female sexuality. Ferenczi publishes his probably most interesting, but also most contested contributions to the theory and technique of psychoanalysis. With hindsight one can say that his technical experiments lead him to formulate a theoretical model which has became the basis for contemporary theories. For a time, he closely collaborates for this with Freud's "right hand," Otto Rank. Their publications lead to a personal and scientific fight over power between the leaders of the psychoanalytic movement, a fight that threatens to split that very movement. This conflict - which has influenced the history of psychoanalysis to this day - results in Rank's leaving the psychoanalytic community and Ferenczi's being marginalized. Freud, at first supportive of Ferenczi and Rank, eventually joins their opponents (above all Karl Abraham and Ernest Jones). He regards Ferenczi's innovations as a scientific regression, and interprets them as Ferenczi's reaction to his own personal problems and deficits. Ferenczi himself, however, is convinced of the value of his ideas, and struggles for more independence from Freud. The general tone of their letters gets less intimate, and sometimes outright sharp. Ferenczi writes less often, instead he confides his new ideas and his criticism of Freud to his "Clinical Diary." Although an open break can be avoided, Ferenczi's untimely death prevents a resolution of their conflicts and misunderstandings.&#xD;Without doubt, the Freud/Ferenczi correspondence is one of the most important primary sources for the early history of psychoanalysis, and it is a literary event of the first magnitude to boot. In none of his other correspondences with disciples writes Freud so frequently, so openly, and over such a long period of time. This final volume documents the tragic end of this "intimate community of life, feeling, and interest" (Freud to Ferenczi, 11.1.1933); and all this before the background of the political and social upheaval of that time.&#xD;The guiding line of the editorial apparatus has been to give the contemporary reader information about anything with which she or he might not be familiar: persons, events, literary and scientific works, quotations, cryptoquotations, allusions, and so on. It also contains quotations from a great number of hitherto unpublished Freud letters.&#xD;

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.&#xD;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.&#xD;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.&#xD;Due to the length of this correspondence (appr. 900 pages in print), this edition will appear in two volumes. &#xD;

The Behavioural Sciences in Dialogue with the Theory and Practice of Analytical Psychology

Abstract

Just over one hundred years ago, Jung coined the term, “Analytical Psychology” to differentiate his theories about the nature and dynamics of the human psyche from the “psychoanalytic” theories of his compatriot, Sigmund Freud. Whilst Jung and his compatriots in related schools of “depth psychology” spoke of “the unconscious” as the driving instinctual force of the mind, scientists today refer principally to the “brain” and its neurological functions and processes. Despite this change in focus, Analytical Psychology, as a recognized corpus of thought and therapeutic practice in its own right, continues to incite dialogue and debate with many other academic traditions, praxes, and fields of study, far beyond its own psychological and psychiatric disciplinary origins. Ideas of analytical psychology can be found in disciplines as wide ranging as business studies, social theory, education, neuroscience, political thought, linguistics, literature, history and historiography, religious studies, quantum physics, environmental studies, fine art and art history, media, and film. Similarly, analytical psychology as a therapeutic practice, is very much in demand within an eclectic range of fields of human care, including those that are relatively new, such as, terminal health care, HIV counselling, political consultation, reconciliation of interfaith groups, relief work to victims of natural disaster, consultation on matters of ecological sustainability, and so on. Analytical psychology’s widespread appeal demonstrates its usefulness in establishing connections between otherwise disparate disciplines so as to make better sense of our human behaviors, motivations, and values.

Abstract

Questo libro chiude una trilogia i cui momenti precedenti sono dati da Un parricidio mancato (2004), dedicato a un’analisi critica eterodossa del rapporto del giovane Marx con i suoi numi tutelari Hegel e Feuerbach, e Un parricidio compiuto (2014), che trattava della relazione ormai risolta del Marx maturo con Hegel. Nei capitoli-saggi che compongono il nuovo volume, l’autore, ampliando il discorso attraverso una lettura attenta di Freud, una ripresa di Spinoza, e con un confronto con la stessa tradizione postidealistica e antiheideggeriana del pensiero italiano (è una perla il capitolo su un maestro dimenticato come Guido Calogero), mette capo a un’originale proposta teorica: quella di un’antropologia filosofica dell’emancipazione basata su una visione bio-psicoanalitica della relazione corpo-mente nell’essere umano. Il fine è di concorrere così alla costruzione di una nuova etica sociale materialistica, al di là del vecchio materialismo storico, capace di sfidare le seduzioni più allettanti dell’individualismo atomizzante del consumo e del mercato. Una prospettiva che interviene direttamente nell’odierna crisi generale della sinistra, mostrando come questa sia anzitutto di ordine teorico e poi anche politico.

Abstract

In Freudian psychoanalysis the so-called »primal scene« is of a very fragile ontological and epistemological nature. It oscillates between factual event, phylogenetically pre-structured phantasy and construction of the analyst. The book examines Freud's arguments for and against the reality of the primal scene by way of his famous case study »Aus der Geschichte einer infantilen Neurose«. It employs methods from the history of science to address philosophical, epistemological, aesthetic, and political questions. Apart from analyzing Freud’s arguments themselves and their metaphorical vehicles, it examines the first edition of the case study and also takes into account the manuscript in the Library of Congress in Washington. Both sources have been heretofore neglected by Freud scholars.

Abstract

Lively and well written, Bread and Circuses analyzes theories that have treated mass culture as either a symptom or a cause of social decadence. Discussing many of the most influential and representative theories of mass culture, it ranges widely from Greek and Roman origins, through Marx, Nietzsche, Freud, Ortega y Gasset, T. S. Eliot, and the theorists of the Frankfurt Institute, down to Marshall McLuhan and Daniel Bell. Brantlinger considers the many versions of negative classicism and shows how the belief in the historical inevitability of social decay.

Abstract

Jedes Kapitel dieses Buches entfaltet anhand eines Stückes Literatur ein Thema aus dem Liebesleben. Für die Psychoanalytikerin Jutta Prasse sind Henry James, Gottfried Keller, Johann Peter Hebel oder Charles Dickens Bundesgenossen bei der Erforschung des weiblichen und männlichen Begehrens, des Mutterideals, der Sexualität des Wissenschaftlers … Sie orientiert sich an Freud und Lacan und kommt doch ohne Fachsprache, ohne Jargon aus. Da sie den Freudschen Witz liebt, verbindet sie Seriosität und Komik, auch, wenn sie Tragisches und Rührendes behandelt. Der Leser kann sich bildend vergnügen, denn dieses Buch, dessen Autorin - unter Pseudonym - zugleich Übersetzerin literarischer Werke war, ist sehr gut zu lesen. Und es ist sehr persönlich geschrieben. Der Titel »Sprache und Fremdsprache« bezieht sich auf die Fremdheit unserer eigenen Sprache; sie ist uns nicht angeboren, doch nur durch sie können wir leben, begehren, lieben, träumen und begreifen.

Abstract

Mikrologien - das sind die Kleinigkeiten, die kleinen Dinge. Sie erscheinen oft als unbedeutend, niedlich, dem Übersehen preisgegeben. Aber erschöpft sich ihr Logos in dieser (scheinbaren) Schwäche? Die vorliegenden Aufsätze entdecken andere Potenziale des Kleinen. In Literatur und Philosophie wird das Grundlegende, das Störende, das Dichte, die fantastische Welthaltigkeit aufgespürt. Die Autoren stecken an exemplarischen Gegenständen einen historischen Raum vom 17. bis zum 21. Jahrhundert ab und erkunden das Kleine als motivische, formale, epistemische und poetologische Instanz. Die mikrologische Recherche zeigt, dass die keimhafte, monadische und atomistische Relation zum Großen und Ganzen die literarische und philosophische Einbildungskraft enorm provoziert hat. Der Band behandelt u.a. Arbeiten von Walter Benjamin, Adalbert Stifter, Samuel Beckett, Franz Kafka, Heinrich von Kleist und Virginia Woolf.
