History and Theory: In Search of the Unconscious of Contemporary Psychoanalytic Discourse in Israel
From its earliest days in fin de siĂ¨cle Vienna psychoanalytic theory and practice maintained complex dialectical relationship, not only with the individualâ€™s life history, but also with the particular intellectual, political and historical climates in which psychoanalytic discourse took root. His presentation will focus on contemporary psychoanalytic discourse in Israel, and place it within its socio-political context. By applying concepts such as â€śpsychoanalytic identityâ€ť and â€śinternal psychoanalytic objectâ€ť to the group, he will try to outline the profile of present-day Israeli psychoanalysis.
Students, academics and clinical professionals in the analytic community are encouraged to attend.
