Dear Colleagues,

As we all recover from bad weather and national elections, I want to draw your attention to the international website and to point out how it reflects the world and national situation for our psychoanalytic understanding.

I will list my suggestions this week but suggest that you at least glance at all the rich material available on the website, and comment.

My choices are as follows:

1) The beautifully written Ticho Lectures by Nathan Szajnberg are a must for all who appreciated psychoanalytic treatment and literature.

2 ) A fascinating post on “reinventing the brain” gives pause to the notion of a brain being an unchaging entity nor it’s importance.

3) Reading “Medicine and Money” on Open Mind – interviews by Dr. Herbert Pardes is a bit like reading a scary fairy tale for a child, but seems to be an outline of where currency reality in Medicine is heading.

4) Newell Fischer’s outstanding book and its review by Jane Hall are a must.

5) David Brooks’ comments on “A Formula for Emotional Success” is not surprising to psychoanalysts ( the study having been conducted by George Vaillant), but confirms and validates the purpose of our work with patients.

6) Second generation PTSD continues to rear its head – see “daughter faces demons of father’s war”

IV. Nathan Szajnberg*s Ticho Lecture Part II

Part II: Christ*s Tale: On (not) Outgrowing One*s Godhood; Dante: the Intimate Trail of Treatment

We continue with ideas of inner life, intimacy and now, an early form of psychoanalytic treatment in Western canon. We have Borges* deeply humanistic scent of Christ; for Dante, we have Dante himself on treatment of an ailing soul.

N. Szajnberg, MD

A man born human, believes himself divine and dies knowing that he is but human (Borges).

V. Nathan Szajnberg*s Ticho Award Lecture Part III

Part III: Shakespeare*s Invention of the Human:

Generating Our Own Miseries or Not
Lear and his obverse, Prospero
Let*s leap to Shakespeare, that poet whom Harold Bloom said invented the human. Were we to have time for Lear alone, this would be enough. But, let us press ourselves and place King Lear and Shakespeare*s final play, The Tempest, aside each other like twinning, flickering stars to learn how one*s gravity affects the other and enlightens ourselves in turn.
Borges suggested that the tragic man is one who realizes he is in the tsunami*s

X. Nine Lives: A New Book by Newell Fischer

Nine lives*nine people treated in intensive psychoanalytic treatment- are described from within. Their emotional lives, internal struggles, conflicts and anguish are vividly described and understood. Each individual*s story is unique and yet these people are tied together by their shared humanity*the human struggles that the sensitive reader can identify with and appreciate. *Man is more human than otherwise,* an aphorism put forth by the famous psychiatrist Harry Stack Sullivan, underscores this commonality of human experience.

XL. Nathan Szajnberg*s Ticho Lecture Part 1

a) The Powerpoint that introduced Nathan Szajnberg at the Ticho Lecture.
I am pleased to present Nathan Szajnberg*s Ticho Memorial Lecture given at the American Psychoanalytic Meeting on June 15, 2012 in Chicago. This is the first post of a four-part series of posts of Dr. Szajnberg*s lecture.

* Arnold Richards, Editor-in-Chief

b) Mimesis of Inner Lives in Western Literature: How We Got Our Ideas About Inner Life.
Ticho Memorial Lecture Chicago, Am. Psychoanalytic Association June 2012
Part I: Bible and Homer: on Character; on Parenthood.

This paper*s idea first rose with Saul Bellow in 1970. He promised, in our seminar on Joyce*s Ulysses, that the only book of literary criticism I would ever have to read is Auerbach*s Mimesis: The Representation of Reality in Western Literature. Several decades later, to design a course for the Hebrew University, I used this grand text as a loom with which I wove the literary and aesthetics threads of our psychoanalytic fabric: concepts of person, parent-child relatedness, intimacy, development, journey as soul-cure, with a guide for this treacherous journey. Just as Freud turned to an Antique Greek myth to understand a Victorian state of mind; just as Ticho articulated contributions of German thinking to Freud*s ideas; or, Makari uncovered three nineteenth Century strands that Freud wove together into a new view of the psyche; just as Bettelheim explored linguistic contributions to concepts of psyche and eros (Freud and Man*s Soul), so, I will cull selections of Western literature# to examine how and when certain concepts developed, and crystallized into how we think about inner life.

Michelle Gillett

Our poet this month is Michelle Gillett, smiling as she holds her new granddaughter in her arms. It*s a pleasure to introduce Michelle and her poems to our readers * at least for those of us who have electrical or battery power * and to take a brief respite from our storm recovery efforts and from thinking (and worrying) about the election tomorrow. We do hope, however, that you REMEMBER TO VOTE and to REMIND YOUR FRIENDS TO VOTE!

As you can see, this week’s list is rather long, and some of the posts are dated, – e.g. the last, and I bring it to your attention so that you can be introduced to Michelle Gillett, our poet of the month.
I hope you found the reading interesting, and that you will comment and share your thoughts on the website.
