The sexual century by Ethel Spector Person( )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the course of the past century, sexual liberation has transformed the way in which most of us regard our bodies and live our sexual lives. Now a preeminent psychoanalytic theoretician on sex and gender discusses what has gone into this unquiet revolution - the roles played by sexologist and psychoanalysts, antibiotics and birth control, the liberation movements, and Freud's insight that sex has as much to do with the mind as it does with the genitals."--Jacket

On Freud's "Creative writers and day-dreaming" by Sigmund Freud( )

14 editions published between 1995 and 2018 in English and held by 1,456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First presented as an informal lecture in 1907, "Creative Writers and Day-dreaming" pursues two lines of inquiry: it explores the origins of daydreaming and its relation to the play of children, and it investigates the creative process. Following an introduction by Ethel Spector Person, the contributors to this volume provide commentaries on Freud's essay, explicating the twists and turns in psychoanalytic theories of fantasy and in applied psychoanalysis. Their essays place Freud's paper in historical context, describe the clinical value of daydreams and fantasies, offer a Kleinian view of fantasy, provide analytic approaches to creativity and fantasy, comment on the ambiguity caused by multiple translations of Freud's text, and reframe the idea of fantasy from a modern biological and developmental approach

On Freud's "Observations on transference-love" by Pi er sen( Book )

14 editions published between 1993 and 2018 in 4 languages and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the third volume in the series "Contemporary Freud: Turning Points and Critical issues," published with the International Psychoanalytical Association. Each book in the series presents a classic essay by Freud and discussions of the essay by prominent psychoanalytic teachers and analysts who differ in emphases and who come from different theoretical backgrounds and geographical locations. "Observations on Transference-Love" may have been inspired, say the contributors, by the unfortunate emotional involvements of two of Freud's colleagues with female patients. In his paper, Freud speaks of the inevitability of "transference-love" in every well-conducted analysis, of its important therapeutic functions, and of its potential hazards. The book begins with an introduction by Ethel Spector Person. The contributors to this volume - Friedrich-Wilhelm Eickhoff, Robert S. Wallerstein, Roy Schafer, Max Hernandez, Betty Joseph, Merton Max Gill, Fidias Cesio, Jorge Canestri, Takeo Doi, and Daniel N. Stern - then provide striking commentaries on Freud's essay. They place the work in the context of Freud's evolving thinking; focus on what it tells us about love, female sexuality, and conventional morality; discuss the role of the therapist in the genesis of the patient's transference love; explore the differences between remembering, reliving, and enacting; and examine how Freud's theory has evolved in light of current developments in psychoanalytic thought. Transference love is discussed in the larger context of transference in general. The essays illuminate what continues to be a major problem in all modalities of psychotherapy: unfortunate, often tragic, enactments of erotic transference and countertransference

On Freud's "Group psychology and the analysis of the ego" by Sigmund Freud( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2018 in English and Chinese and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sixth volume in the series "Contemporary Freud: Turning Points and Critical Issues," published with the International Psychoanalytic Association, turns to Group Psychology and the Analysis of the Ego (1921) In this classic text Freud offered an analysis of the roots of group identity, of the contagions of panic and fanaticism, and of the submission of the individual to the leader that only gained cogency with each passing decade of the troubled twentieth century. And Freud's insights have become more relevant still in the aftermath of the shattering events of September 11, 2001.Following an introduction to the volume by Ethel Spector Person and a summary and abridgement of Freud's text by John Kerr, the contributors to this volume - Didier Anzieu, Robert Caper, Abraham Zeleznik, Andre Haynal, Ernst Falzeder, Yolanda Gampel, and Claudio Laks Eisirik - provide commentaries on Freud's work, explicating the multiple ways in which Freud's insights continue to illuminate the irrational dynamics to which all groups, including psychoanalytic institutions, are prey. Serving as both an introduction to, and an elegant expansion of, Freud's texts, this volume demonstrates the role of psychoanalytic hypotheses in obtaining deeper insight into the tectonic shifts in group psychology underlying today's mass society
