Dear Colleagues,

It is in a week of world turmoil – financial, economic, political, nuclear threats and big and small calamities all over the world that the international website covers all aspects of both good and evil from the psychoanalytic point of view. Please note that I have left out any announcements as they were mostly repeats of the past few weeks.

Also notice that although I list but a few of my own picks, I suggest in addition that you glance at all the books and news items, – the posts this week are well worth reading carefully.

My recommendations this week are as follows:

1) In wake of the Aurora tragedy, which sadly reminded me of a similar but completely differently motivated massacre in Quentin Tarantino’s film Inglourious Basterds, we are reminded of how differently we react to actions in combat and to acts of violence in peacetime. I will not take time and space to ponder this but please read the post Aurora: Sequel And Prequel To American Gun Savagery.

2) I strongly suggest that you look at all the Audio/Video listings – especially as most of portray some form of abuse –
