 Dear Colleagues,

While some of us try to take time out to relax by seaside, lake side or pool side and enjoy midsummer’s nature despite the changing climate, the psychoanalytic website continues to be a source of information about the latest scientific, medical, political and financial events subject to psychoanalytic scrutiny. Though seemingly tranquil, the weather is unpredictable and the Olympic games remind us of previous ones. The website picks up these themes and others.

There are many posts this week and though I list quite a few, please also glance at the last two “Uncategorized” posts on physically and emotionally distressed children.

My choices this week are as follows:

1) Congratulations are due again to Elise Snyder who is the recipient of the coveted Sigmund Freud Award.

2) Oddly, the ART category this week revealed in a Paris exhibit a chilling reminder of the greatest enactment of prejudice and genocide in modern history. – The Exhibit shows the archives of French Jews deported from France not by the Germans but by the French police in July 1942. The world has attempted to gain analytic/political understanding of Hitler and the Nazi movement but not much attention has been paid to this particular event and many have been unaware.

3) I love Nathan Szajnberg’s pitch for keeping fairies in Fairy Tales – to keep the development of children on track. Please read.

4) Marilyn Monroe as a representative of the women’s movement?

5) Intriguing juxtaposition of 2 books – Freud as a young man in love and Freud as the Late Bloomer – both quite fascinating.

6) Maternity Leave? It depends on who you are.

7) the London Olympics bring up the ’72 Munich Massacre, the 1938 Munich conference and the Spielberg’s film “Munich”, reviews of which will be of interest to all of us and to all generations.

8) In the psychoanalytic tradition, Henry A. Giroux comments that the Colorado Shooting Is About More Than Gun Culture – it is about violence in the culture. Henry A. Giroux currently holds the Global TV Network Chair Professorship at McMaster University in the English and Cultural Studies Department. His most recent books include: Youth in a Suspect Society (Palgrave, 2009); Politics After Hope: Obama and the Crisis of Youth, Race, and Democracy (Paradigm, 2010); Hearts of Darkness: Torturing Children in the War on Terror (Paradigm, 2010); and others.

Please read his carefully written article.

9) the issue of “did your brain make you do it” is, in my opinion, one of the most crucial questions in our violence ridden society. Please read and write your thoughts on this important topic, especially in light of the latest Aurora shooting and the Penn State revelations.
