Symposium: Psychoanalysis, Art & The Occult

May 6, 2016 - May 8, 2016
Candid Arts, 3 Torrens Street
London, EC1V 1NQ United Kingdom

In 1953, psychoanalyst and anthropologist George Devereux published a collection of works from various psychoanalysts entitled Psychoanalysis and the Occult, which explored the intersection between the practice of psychoanalysis and occult phenomena, including contributions from Freud himself on ‘Premonitions and Chance’, ‘Psychoanalysis and Telepathy’, and ‘The Occult Significance of Dreams’. Additionally, Freud’s paper ‘Notes on the Unconscious’ was published in the journal of the Society for Psychical Research in 1912. Since that time, however, the majority of psychoanalysts willing to…

Psychoanalysis and the Occult

April 9, 2016 10:00 am - 6:00 pm
NPAP, 40 West 13th St
New York, NY 10011

The purpose of the “Psychoanalysis and the Occult” Project is to return to Freud’s work on the psychic domain - the work on “telepathy” originally left out of the Traumdeutung and his development of “psychic reality” emerging from his analysis of psychosis and the Schreber case - and to compare it with the work of Lacan, Jung, Reich, and others who sought to explore psychic causality and the occult from a logical perspective. In the 1950s George Devereaux published a…

INSTITUTE NO INSTITUTE: What Makes a Psychoanalyst?

February 27, 2016 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
NYU, Kimmel Center (Room 802), 60 Washington Square South
New York, 10003

Becoming a psychoanalyst is founded upon a subjective transformation that occurs in a personal analysis. It cannot be measured or predicted, yet it is the necessary factor that allows one to conduct analytic treatment. Neither the analyst alone nor a group of independent observers can determine its occurrence, but somehow together they may. That something so difficult to determine lies at the heart of professional transmission has troubled the field of psychoanalysis from its inception. Institutes, schools, and broader communities…

On Violence: Civilization and its Blisscontents

May 1, 2015 - May 3, 2015
Forham University

On Violence: Civilization and its Blisscontents Violence today seems not to address only our physical bodies and sense of safety: Columbine, Sandy Hook, Virginia Tech, ISIS, but also our positions as subjects: the medicalized body, the surgically aesthetically improved body, civic subjectivity reduced to consumption, mental health reduced to pharmacology. Timothy McVeigh said, “the government is increasingly hostile,” and blowing up the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City was what he called  “the just response.” This conference asks questions about violence and…

Conference: Psychoanalysis on Ice

October 9, 2014 - October 12, 2014
Iceland Iceland

We invite psychoanalysts of all theoretical orientations to meet in Reykjavik and discuss foundational psychoanalytic concepts as well as the challenges of psychoanalysis today. The history of psychoanalysis has been fraught with divisions, separations, excommunications, and seemingly unbridgeable rifts. That historical divisions are often transmitted makes for a markedly chilly present. We hope to potentiate deeper engagement among psychoanalysts, revisiting and revivifying fundamental concepts, and to consider together the challenges that face us all, from the abstract to the practical.…

Conference: Psychoanalysis and Laughter

April 26, 2013 - April 29, 2013
Forham University

Psychoanalysis and Laughter What does psychoanalysis have to tell us about laughter? In his Jokes and Their Relation to the Unconscious (1905), Freud famously illuminated the Witz’s linguistic and economic properties. Linguistically, the Witz “works” like the dream (by condensation and displacement); economically, it bypasses the “inhibiting factor” both in the teller of the joke and in the listener. Jokes are serious business for Freud: like dreams, they allow aggression an acceptable form, establishing a social tie while satisfying repressed…

Conference: The Art of Madness

April 27, 2012 - April 29, 2012
Forham University

The Art of Madness A Study Weekend in New York Friday to Sunday, April 27-29, 2012 Fordham University Lacan famously said that “le fou est l’homme libre” (“the madman is the free man”) and that there is a “pathologie de la liberté” (“a pathology of freedom”). How should we understand these words in the current cultural climate of constant surveillance? Does creativity exist as a realm of freedom outside of such social constraints? If so, how is it related to…
