Horst-Eberhard Richter (1923-2011) war lange Zeit das deutsche Gesicht gesellschaftskritischer Psychoanalyse. Seine Erfahrungen in den Kriegsjahren, in denen er unter anderem als Wehrmachtssoldat an der Ostfront kämpfte, prägten seine späteren Arbeiten nach erfolgreichem Studium der Medizin, Philosophie und Psychologie.

The Freud/Tiffany Project (Part I)

Author: Elizabeth Ann Danto

Aggression of women in psychoanalytic discourse

Author: Petra Roscheck

“If society is in danger, it is not because of man’s aggressiveness but because of the repression of personal aggressiveness in individuals” (Winnicott, 1991)

The word aggression is derived from the Latin word "aggredi" (deponent), which can be either translated as "charge, attack" or"advancing/charging forward (something)". The first translation indicates the hostility (destructiveness) associated with this term, while the other emphasizes its constructive potential. Both versions are legitimate interpretations of the term aggression. It is precisely this ambiguity that makes the discussion about aggression so delicate. Most people associate aggression solely with destruction and anti-social behavior. The perception of one´s own aggressive impulses causes feelings of fear or guilt that must be repressed, split off or compensated as of counteractions.
