Freud and forbidden knowledge( )

8 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The psychoanalyst dares to explore the most intimate recesses of the human soul, to throw open long-barred doors, and to confront the forbidden knowledge beneath the surface. In Freud and Forbidden Knowledge, nine exceptional essays use psychoanalysis to uncover the theme of forbidden knowledge in canonical works of the Western tradition, from the Bible to Hamlet. Psychoanalysis is a discipline that seeks to understand and alleviate human suffering. Its practice is therefore an inherently dangerous activity. The psychoanalyst dares to explore the most intimate recesses of the human soul, to throw open long-barred doors, and to confront the monsters that may lie in wait. In facilitating the patient's process of self- discovery, psychoanalysis concerns forbidden knowledge. Following Freud's lead, Rudnytsky and Spit approach works of art as constituting psychoanalytic knowledge. Divining that in literature we find the deposits of forbidden knowledge, this collection of nine exceptional essays pursues the theme of forbidden knowledge in canonical works of the Western tradition, from the Hebrew Bible to Boccaccio's The Decameron to Shakespeare's Hamlet. These papers pointedly address the canonical status of these works, positing that the canon must be re-visioned in order to recover the history of transgression. Freud and Forbidden Knowledge offers a series of wide-ranging meditations on the tragic dimensions of human experience; cumulatively, they invite reflection on the significance of forbidden knowledge to Freud"--Publisher description

While literature and the arts are rarely considered primary sources for knowledge about human motivation and behavior, people read novels, attend movies, watch television, and go to the theater not solely to be entertained but also to learn about one another and about themselves. Illuminating Childhood formalizes this quest for psychological knowledge in the domain of the arts
Barbara Chase-Riboud : the Malcolm X steles by Barbara Chase-Riboud( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Born in Philadelphia and living and working between Paris and Rome, Barbara Chase-Riboud is an internationally celebrated visual artist, novelist and poet. This important publication focuses on her monumental series of sculptures dedicated to the assassinated civil rights leader Malcolm X. Begun in 1969, Chase-Riboud's series is explored in terms of developing artistic practice; her travels to China and North Africa; and her experiences in Europe, particularly during the cultural, political and social upheavals of the 1960s. The volume also includes a fascinating analysis of the Malcom X sculptures in light of critical debates on abstract art's role in memorialising the past. This book presents an illustrated checklist of the 13 sculptures in the series, related drawings and sculptures, and a chronology of Chase-Riboud's life and career.0Exhibition: Philadelphia Museum of Art, USA (14.09. - 08.12.2013) 0

Magritte''s Labyrinth by Ellen Handler Spitz( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gertrude Stein once asked why certain painted pictures engrave themselves into our minds with fierce tenacity. Why do they unsettle us? The enigmatic art of Belgian Surrealist artist René Magritte has long been subject to art historical and philosophical inquiry and mined by the worlds of advertising, illustration, and film. Yet Stein''s questions are rarely asked. ""Magritte's Labyrinth"" takes them on. It introduces a vital psychological perspective that has gone missing. Beyond manifest cognitive dissonance, it questions the powerful emotional impact of Magritte''s painted imagery. Tra
Arte e psiche : fenomenologia della creatività da Leonardo a Magritte by Ellen Handler Spitz( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in Italian and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Feminism and tradition in aesthetics( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dit werk is een verzameling van essays die stuk voor stuk de taaiheid van tradities in de kunstfilosofie en de theorie van de esthetiek belichten. De centrale vraag is op welke manier onze culturele achtergrond onze waarneming beïnvloedt, begrippen als schoonheid, kunst en cultuur betekenis geeft en hoe kunstfilosofie en de theorie van de esthetiek op hun beurt de waarneming van het kunstobject door het individu hebben beïnvloed. In ieder geval: door de taaiheid van de esthetische tradities heeft ook het feminisme lang moeilijkheden ondervonden om in de esthetische theorievorming voet aan de grond te krijgen. In dit boek dat eigenlijk een bundeling is van essays zijn ook enkele bijdragen over film opgenomen, zo onder meer een essay van de vermaarde vertegenwoordigster van het zwarte feminisme, bell hooks, die het verband bespreekt tussen de positie van zwarte vrouwen in de maatschappij en de manier waarop ze naar speelfilms kijken

Psychoanalysis and the academy: Reflections on undergraduate teaching1( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: This article addresses both the rewards and the daunting complexities of teaching psychoanalysis to undergraduates in the USA, where the idea of a university as a site for the cultivation of the life of the mind is under siege. The essay recommends a close critical reading of key Freudian texts, the establishment of a classroom atmosphere of trust, genuine respect for expectable student skepticism, and the capacity to wait as dystonic ideas gradually take hold and reveal their worth. Speed, a ubiquitous feature and a questionable desideratum of twenty-first century US culture, as well as facile cleverness, a desideratum within academia, tell against the psychoanalytic process, which is long, slow, halting, laborious, and painful, but a process that can, at best, open what has heretofore been sealed
