Dear Colleagues:

The international psychoanalytic website is brimming with more historical material as it pertains to psychoanalytic thinking and development as the events were happening, be it their influence on Heidegger, Freud, Lacan and others, and on our theory – as in child development.
Spurred on by recurrent war efforts, this material is timely once again. Please note that I have attempted to avoid posing announcements of events which I had listed in the past few weeks, to avoid repetition.

My choices this week are:

1) For a detailed and personal documentary on how our own life experiences affect our work as psychoanalysts please read “Steven Kuchuck sits down with Tracy Morgan of the podcast New Books in Psychoanalysis” in the Audio/Video Category.
Click Here to Read This Article

2) 2 posts in books are a must read – on Freud by Robert Fletcher and on Heidegger by Peter E. Gordon.
Click Here to Read This Article on Freud
Click Here to Read This Article on Heidegger

3) I was pleased (though saddened by the content) to read the post on Psychiatry’s Underground Economy – a fact that most of us have known for a couple of decades or more. Pleased that it is now in the open and unhappy that none of our organizations have been able to stop the tide of evidence based medicine and the rise of the control of the insurance companies.
Please read the article carefully in the General News Category and write your comments.

4) I quote a paragraph from The article:: The Politics of Unreason and the Boogey-Man of “Cultural Marxism” On the CHRYSALIS in the General News Category. It captures what often seems like the political insanity of our times. Please read!

“Anyway you look it, the phrase ‘cultural Marxism’ (or “socialistic multiculturalism”) is the same many-headed Hydra, and it belongs to mythological and magical thinking, not to reason. It conflates what are, as perceived by reactionary conservatives, many different existential threat conveniently into one threat—Islam, Marxism, Liberalism, Feminism, Environmentalism, etc. In fact, anything that is ‘not me.’ That is not only extremely narcissistic thinking, it is also the essence of a totalitarian delusion.”

5) Do your children or grandchildren attend pre-K with the hope of giving them an academic advantage? Read N. Szajnberg, MD’s comment and the study report in General News.

6) Please note several posts about S. Freud in the General News and the Book Categories.
Click Here to Read This Article on How Sigmund Freud Wanted to Die
Click Here to Read This Article on Are We Saying Goodbye to Sigmund Freud
Click Here to Read This Article on Freud and the Scence of Trauma

7) Yet another article on “religious violence” writes what a 13 year old patient of mine told his class about religion (god) being the cause of all wars. It also resonates with the posts on antisemitism, sprinkled throughout this week’s fare. See in General News.
Click Here to Read This Article The Myth of Religious Violence
Click Here to Read This Article Europe’s Anti-Semitism

8) And of course the movies tell it all: Read about the Iraqi Odyssey and about the Miners shot down: 2012 Marikana massacre.

Click Here to Read This Article on the Marikana Massacre

9) Please read the moving paper by Arlene Richards on her teaching in Wuhan, and the papers on the Origins of Disorganized Attachment and Internal Working Models, as well as a post on Karl and Will Menninger in the Papers Category – all exceedingly fascinating.

N. Szajnberg, MD

****** we found that the effects of TN***VPK on the WJ achievement measures observed at the end of the pre***k year had greatly diminished by the end of the kindergarten year and the differences between participants and nonparticipants were no longer statistically significant. The only exception was a marginally significant difference on Passage Comprehension with nonparticipants showing higher scores at the end of the kindergarten year than TN***VPK participants. Similarly, at the end of first grade, there were no statistically significant differences between TN***VPK participants and nonparticipants on the WJ ***.

XLVI. Sociology and Anthropology Monday: Seymour Martin Lipset (1922-2006)
Martin Lipset was another one of those brilliant undergraduate students whose debating skills in particular and critical acumen more generally were honed at the Alcove One of the cafeteria of the City College of New York in the late thirties and early forties. The unifying factor of those 30-50 City students who congregated at Alcove One was not ideological purity (although they were all people of the left of varying and indeed conflicting stripes) but rather their strident opposition to Stalinism. Lipset came to Alcove One as a kind of Trotskyist but left the party after his first year at City. In an autobiographical essay published in 1996 Lipset suggests that his life work as a sociologist, more narrowly, as a political sociologist, had been motivated by three questions which he posed while an
undergraduate student at City and as a graduate student in the Department of Sociology at Columbia University under the supervision of Robert K. Merton and Philip Selznick. ***.

Though this has been an extensive list of posts which I hope you will be able to read in some detail, I am particularly impressed with the content this week and urge you all to share your views on the website. The scope of the international psychoanalytic website is in my opinion a universal gift to all analysts, mental health professionals as well as many other individuals world wide in related disciplines and professions from writers to historians. We are fortunate to have access to this potpourri of posts every week.
