Souleymane and the Story of the Transformed Reborn (Part I)

Author: Anita Dietrich-Neunkirchner

(For the next week, the author will be available in our Forum for the questions and comments of our readers!)


This essay was written in 2011 after spending several weeks in Mali/West Africa. Along with my family, I visited a befriended couple working in Bandiagara. Bandiagara is a small town in southeastern Mali located on the edge of a sandstone cliff area, the Falaise, which was added to the UNESCO list in 1989 with its approximately 300 villages as a World Cultural and Natural Heritage. The walls of the escarpment around Bandiagara were populated during the 14th century by the Dogon people - an association of several ethnic groups – that were psychoanalytically researched for the first time in the 1960s by Paul Parin, Goldy Parin Matthèy and Fritz Morgenthaler. The Dogon people still practice their animistic believes, which are rich in mythological traditions, cultic practices and rituals. On several of our long trips we were accompanied by Souleymane - a local tourist guide.

Intellectually and entertainment-wise, the philosopher Konrad Paul Liessmann set a fast that was difficult to catch up with. In principal, falsehood is different from fallacy since falsehood is intentionally spread misinformation. Dr. Barbara Helige, lawyer and professor, provided those present with interesting insights into juridical day-to-day life and raised several issues that were addressed during the debate.

Alexander and Sigmund Freud in Greece

Author: Helen Carabott (TVP)

Sigmund Freud was a fan of the ancient Greek culture and had an excellent knowledge of the ancient Greek language. He was so familiar with it, that he wrote his diary in ancient Greek as a youngster.


Ο Sigmund Freud ήταν λάτρης του αρχαίου ελληνικού πολιτισμού και άριστος γνώστης της αρχαίας ελληνικής γλώσσας. Τόση ήταν η εξοικείωσή του μαζί της, που έγραφε με άνεση στα ελληνικά το ημερολόγιό του, όταν ήταν νέος.
