Leading article of the week

You are what others cannot see: within your own skin
At the border between psyche and soma

Author: Gabriella Papadia

(We are very glad to welcome back Gabriella Papadia! For the next week, she will be available in our Forum for the questions and comments of our readers!)

“I don’t know what you done but I can’t get enough
‘Cause you give me that rush, I don’t want it to stop…”

Tattoos. Do we choose to sign our body with something that can represent our personality, or do we simply choose to embellish our body?

In any case we want that it lasts forever. Symbols that are the results of our loose associations. We freely link a thought or an emotion to a graphic representation or to a memory, and what comes up is a thought that reflects us, a thought that has something to do with Us, with those parts of us we do not want to give up: our authentic and real self. A part of our identity. The false self has nothing to do with tattoos. the sincerest form of our ego as “something that we decide” leaves our mind and turns into reality: you can see it, you can touch it. It’s you. The experience with tattoos is not always a pleasant one. This is because maybe there was a time lag between the irrepressible desire and going through with the plan. 

Tu sei quello che gli altri non vedono: dentro la pelle
Al confine tra psiche e soma

“I don’t know what you done but I can’t get enough
‘Cause you give me that rush, I don’t want it to stop…”

I tatuaggi. Segni che portiamo sulla pelle per sempre. Scegliamo di segnare su di noi qualcosa che ci rappresenti profondamente, oppure scegliamo semplicemente di abbellire il nostro corpo? In ogni caso, scegliamo che sia per sempre. Simboli … Frutto delle nostre libere associazioni. Associamo liberamente un pensiero o un’emozione ad una rappresentazione grafica, un ricordo e quello che ne viene fuori è un pensiero che ci rispecchia, che ha a che fare con Noi, con la nostra personalità, con quelle parti di noi a cui non vogliamo rinunciare: il nostro Sé più vero, autentico. Una fetta della nostra identità. Con i tatuaggi il Falso Sè c’entra davvero poco, forse proprio per nulla. Il nostro Io più intimo sottoforma di “qualcosa che siamo noi a stabilire” esce fuori dalla mente e si trasforma in realtà: lo vedi, lo tocchi. Sei tu. Non sempre, però, l’esperienza con i tatuaggi può essere piacevole, perché magari è passato del tempo tra il desiderio e la voglia irrefrenabile di farlo e il farlo sul serio.

"Immer wieder hat Freud darauf verwiesen, dass es nur eine Sicht der Dinge gebe, die seine."

Author: Lea Dohm

Freuds Untergang

Jürgen Kind, Autor des vorliegenden Buches, ist Facharzt für Psychiatrie und Psychotherapie. Er ist zudem Lehr- und Kontrollanalytiker am Lou-Salomé-Institut in Göttingen und war über mehrere Jahre Abteilungsleiter der bekannten psychiatrischen und psychotherapeutischen Klinik Tiefenbrunn.

Was erwartet mich?

Es ist eine große Herausforderung, den Inhalt des vorliegenden Buches in kurzer, prägnanter Form zusammenzufassen – zu umfangreich erscheinen die auf 197 Quellenangaben basierenden Ausführungen Kinds. Letztlich reflektiert „Das Tabu“ auf 423 Seiten in fünf Teilen die Entstehungsgeschichte der Psychoanalyse mit Freud als zentraler Figur:
