Sigmund Freud´s return to Vienna

Author: Sabrina Zehetner (TVP)

(06/06/2018)

On June 4, a sculpture of Sigmund Freud created by Oscar Nemon was unveiled on the campus of the Medical University of Vienna. Prior to the unveiling, we talked to Sigmund Freud’s great-grandson Lord David Freud and Lady Aurelia Young, the sculptor’s daughter.


Interview with Lord David Freud:

What is your relationship with Vienna?

Lord David Freud: It´s a very complicated relationship because my father (Anton Walter Freud) and the rest of the family was thrown out of Vienna, and it was the fundamental cause of an underlying insecurity for him. It was very character-forming in a not very positive way. My father was very insecure wherever he lived. He never felt quite at home, that he belonged in the UK. >> continue

DWP: What led you to deal with psychoanalysis, respectively with Freud and his achievements?

Sophia Benedict: I come from the USSR, where psychoanalysis has been undesirable since 1925 until the mid-1980s. Everyone knows how sweet the forbidden fruit is. The few works that I have managed to read have aroused my interest and it has grown since then. Later, when I was already living in Vienna, I read almost all of Freud’s works; I attended the lectures on psychoanalysis and even took part in lectures from the university as a free listener. Then I began to translate articles and books on psychoanalysis. I have also written some science journalistic books that have been successfully published in Russia. >> continue

What distinguishes political from economic conduct and is it possible to analyze public figures like Trump? We met the US-based professor and expert on personality disorders to discuss leadership and the fundamental difference between personality and behavior.

In your lecture, you discussed the characteristics of leadership and you also talked about foresight as a form of intelligence. What promotes this foresight and how can one obtain it? Is it formal education, or experience?

Otto Kernberg: Intelligence is a complex concept comprised of various abilities. When we refer to “intelligence”, we are talking about a sum of cognitive abilities, basically measured by the level of abstract thinking. Abstract thinking is the best indication of general intelligence, but one can obtain and integrates knowledge in multiple ways. There is an emotional intelligence, a social intelligence, a mathematical intelligence. These are different concepts. First, intelligence is genetically determinated and related to the structure of the central nervous system, particularly the cerebral cortex.


So intelligence is partly determinated…

Otto Kernberg: Partly yes, partly it depends on the cognitive experiences during the first years of life – especially on how a child develops an interest in his own thinking in an environment that strengthens it, so that the interest in emotional and mental inner life is displayed, and there is the possibility to discuss it with the parents. Thereby, intelligence is developed in multiple ways, and is essentially as important as innate abilities. It really is a combination of abilities that stem from genetics and constitution as well as from environmental influences and interpersonal relationships in the first years of life, which then further develop. The special ability to extrapolate from current behavior to future developments is a special function that can be developed and learned, and as I said yesterday, the longer the span of the influence of current developments on the future, the higher is the institutionally vital intelligence that allows for the development of leadership in organizations and politics. >> continue

In our interview series "in conversation with“, we will briefly present the authors of the leading articles. We want to give our users the opportunity to read the leading article from a different point of view.


This week we are very glad to welcome Nicholas Fox Weber from Connecticut, U.S.A.:

EDUCATION:
1969-71 Yale University, New Haven, CT M.A., Art History; Fellowship in American Art
1965-69 Columbia College, New York, NY B.A., major in art history
1961-65 Loomis School, Windsor, CT Cum Laude
PROFESSIONAL:
1983 to present Director, Josef Albers Stiftung, Bottrop, Germany
1976 to present Executive Director, The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, Bethany, CT
1979 summer: Lecturer, 20th Century Art, New School for Social Research, New York
1971-76 President, Fox Charts, Inc., Hartford, CT
1974 Guest lecturer, 20th Century Painting and Sculpture, Trinity College, Hartford, CT
1973 Guest lecturer, Collecting Contemporary Art, Trinity College, Hartford, CT
1970-71 Graduate teaching assistant, Yale University, New Haven, CT


DWP: What led you to deal with psychoanalysis, respectively with Freud and his achievements?

Nicholas Fox Weber: My topic, which I came to by chance, is Freud’s trip to Orvieto. In the book I wrote about this, I explain why the subject has such personal significance to me, and what the particular elements were that led me to want to pursue the subject. I am sure that having undergone a traditional Freudian analysis myself, for about seven years, four days a week when the doctor and I were not traveling (as agreed in advance,) and, since concluding it about twenty-five years ago, having had a lot of opportunity to consider its immense benefits and surprising limitations, I was drawn to anything with the name Freud on it. He is, for many of us, one of the individuals of the modern era who has had the greatest impact. I know, for example, that on my first trip to Vienna, made for other reasons, I headed quickly to Bergasse 19. When, some 18 years ago, our younger daughter turned 16, she wanted to go to Freud’s house in London—my wife and I were delighted. Freud, I will admit, is a sort of cult figure for many of us. >> continue

In our interview series "in conversation with“, we will briefly present the authors of the leading articles. We want to give our users the opportunity to read the leading article from a different point of view.


This week we are very glad to welcome Todd Raymond Dufresne from Thunder Bay, Ontario:

Academic Qualifications:
1991-1997 Doctor of Philosophy, Social and Political Thought, York University, Toronto.
1990-1992 Master of Arts, Social and Political Thought, York University, Toronto.
1985-1989 Bachelor of Arts, Philosophy, The University of Western Ontario, London.

Professional Affiliation:
Professor of Philosophy, Lakehead University

DWP: What led you to deal with psychoanalysis, especially as it concerns Freud and his achievements?

Todd Raymond Dufresne: From the perspective of practitioners, I came to Freud and psychoanalysis backwards – as an academic. I was introduced to Freud’s work as an undergraduate student in Philosophy, but had no intention of working on psychoanalysis as a graduate student. I thought I’d research the work of American novelist Thomas Pynchon! But my plans shifted in the face of the social and cultural conditions I encountered as a graduate student in Social & Political Thought at York University in Toronto. What I found was that a fair number of my peers were not just working on psychoanalysis but were in analytic therapy. And since some of them were sophisticated and interesting people, I too became intrigued. It was a hothouse environment, in some ways, and I was a classic fish out of water. Although I feel most at home in Toronto today, I was born to a small town working class family in Northern Ontario, attended high school in a small city a few hours away, and then earned my BA at the University of Western Ontario – a big traditional university in London, Ontario. When I went to graduate school in 1990 a lot of ideas in the margins of tradition were at the centre of everyone’s concerns at York. So in addition to not exactly fitting into this culture, I also no longer felt very radical! >> continue

Steven Stern: (1) During college, working 3 summers in an analytically-oriented therapeutic camp in New Hampshire. It was trial by fire, alone much of the time with nine 10-year old boys in a cabin in the woods! With the help of skilled analytic supervisors I learned how to convert what could have been “Lord of the Flies” into a deeply therapeutic (though often emotionally raw) milieu; (2) As a psychology intern in Madison WI in the late 1970s, being supervised by a self-psychologically-oriented analyst on the case of a multiply abused, “borderline” young woman and seeing first hand the transformative power of empathic understanding and connection. >> continue

DWP: What brought you to psychoanalysis?

Thomas Barth: There were a couple of factors: My interest in psychological topics - apart from music - had existed since my childhood. In 1982 at the Gymnasium in Tulln, I took psychology and philosophy as compulsory optional subject in 7th grade. Our teacher encouraged by her way of teaching this interest further.

Then in the mid-80s, I studied y psychology with focus on psychiatry at the Vienna University and heard among others lectures by Erwin Ringel, Hans Strotzka, Harald Leupold-Löwenthal and Giselher Guttmann. I did not graduate at that time, but I continued to deal with psychoanalytic topics. After several years in New York, I met Professor Guttmann in Vienna in December 2005. He told me among others thing about the then newly founded Sigmund Freud Private University (SFU), whose dean he was then. I completed my studies there (2009) and the psychoanalytic training (2010, in cooperation with the PSI, the psychoanalytic seminar Innsbruck). >> continue

Dear Readers,

THE VIENNA PSYCHOANALYST is growing!

What is "Psychoanalytic Journalism"? Does it exist? Can it exist? If so, what could be the definition of it?

These are all questions which THE VIENNA PSYCHOANALYST will investigate in the future.

As a first step, we are expanding our editorial team with Sabrina Zehetner, journalist and communication scientist, who will help us in the attempt to answer all these questions.
She has already gained important experience in the area of scientific journalism (SYN Magazine) and in the psychoanalytic environment (Sigmund Freud Museum Vienna).
In the future, there will be more homemade reports, interviews and articles.

In the coming year, there will also be a lot of new and exciting news for our Readers.

However now we would like to introduce you to Sabrina Zehetner!

Dear readers and listeners,

Since May 2015, the psychoanalytic radio show series "UNBEWUSST – die Lust am freien Sprechen" has been broadcasted live on every second Wednesday once a month.
For the last months, the radio team has been searching for other moderators, with the support of THE VIENNA PSYCHOANALYST.
Here we would like to thank you again for all your emails and applications!

Now it´s time, the radio team has decided and two new moderators have joined the team.
But not only that, through these two new hosts, it is now also possible to invite English-speaking guests to the program, so the radio series will no longer be broadcast only in German, but we will also sometimes broadcast English-language shows.

We are very proud to be able to offer this new feature from now on and all this live from Vienna!

This week we will introduce you to the male new arrival!
Welcome to the team, Kaan ÖZEMEK! >> continue

Since May 2015, the psychoanalytic radio show series "UNBEWUSST – die Lust am freien Sprechen" has been broadcasted live on every second Wednesday once a month.
For the last months, the radio team has been searching for other moderators, with the support of THE VIENNA PSYCHOANALYST.
Here we would like to thank you again for all your emails and applications!

Now it´s time, the radio team has decided and two new moderators have joined the team.
But not only that, through these two new hosts, it is now also possible to invite English-speaking guests to the program, so the radio series will no longer be broadcast only in German, but we will also sometimes broadcast English-language shows.

We are very proud to be able to offer this new feature from now on and all this live from Vienna!

This week we will introduce you to the female new arrival!
Welcome to the team, Valerie MARKO! >> continue

DWP: What led you to deal with psychoanalysis, respectively with Freud and his achievements? Cosa ti ha portato a occuparti di psicoanalisi, di Freud e dei suoi successi?

Gabriella Papadia: It might seem a banal story, but as a child, I was intrigued by his thoughts, mainly by the tendency to get in touch and learn this method of treatment (talking cure) “outside the box”. The philosophical and anthropological influences that encounter in his thinking mean that psychoanalysis also configure it as an human care method, closer to people. Potrebbe sembrare banale, ma sin da piccola sono stata attirata dal suo pensiero, soprattutto dalla tendenza ad acquisire ed imparare questo metodo di trattamento "fuori dagli schemi". (la cura attraverso la parola).Le influenze filosofiche ed antropoligiche che si riscontrano nel suo pensiero fanno sì che la psicoanalisi si configuri come un metodo di cura umano, più vicino alle persone. >> continue

DWP: What led you to deal with psychoanalysis, respectively with Freud and his achievements?

Emilio Modena: There have been two motifs during my adolescence and early adulthood. On the one hand the idealization of my grandfather (step-) father´s side, Rudolf Brun, who was a neurologist, psychoanalyst and myrmecologist and a real private scholar and as such an impressive personality. Even today, I still own his research microscope. On the other hand, my curiosity, which was directed towards biology, as well as sociology and politics.

Author: STEFAN KRISTENSEN / DWP

(08.10.2016)

In our interview series "in conversation with“, we will briefly present the authors of the leading articles. We want to give our users the opportunity to read the leading article from a different point of view.


This week we are very glad to welcome Stefan Kristensen from Geneva, Switzerland:

He is currently a postdoctoral research fellow at the Art History Department, University of Geneva. He holds a PhD in philosophy from the Universities of Geneva and Paris on Merleau-Ponty and the question of expression. He has been a research fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation at the University of Heidelberg (2013-2015). He has published extensively on the theory of subjectivity, on the problem of witnessing, on the sources and limits of Merleau-Ponty’s philosophy among other topics in contemporary continental philosophy and aesthetics. He recently completed his habilitation thesis at the University of Toulouse with a work entitled “The Sensitive Machine”, an essay of articulating the phenomenological perspective of Merleau-Ponty and the schizoanalysis of Félix Guattari (to be published by Herrman, Paris). His latest book is entitled Jean-Luc Godard Philosopher (2014).



DWP: What led you to deal with psychoanalysis, respectively with Freud and his achievements?

Stefan Kristensen: I have come to psychoanalytical literature through the study of the French philosopher Maurice Merleau-Ponty. I was curious about his use of the Freudian notion of sublimation in his attempts to describe the passage of perceptual sense onto the realm of language (in PhD, published in 2010 under the title Parole et subjectivité. Merleau-Ponty et la phénoménologie de l’expression). This made me familiar with Merleau-Ponty’s quite mysterious idea of an ontological psychoanalysis (in The Visible and the Invisible), in which the unconscious would not be necessarily circumscribed to an individual, but where the unconscious actually is an access to being itself. From such a vantage point, Freud appears as the groundbreaking classic author who made many things possible, but whose ontological prejudices prevented him from going all the way through. But as a genuine classical thinker, his text contains a potential of new questioning at each new reading. >> continue

DWP: What brought you to psychoanalysis?

Daniel Burston: Two things, primarily. One was adolescent curiosity, another was my parent’s bookshelf, which contained volumes by Freud, Anna Freud, John Bowlby, Erich Fromm, Erik Erikson, etc. The fact that several of my parents’ friends were psychologists, psychiatrists or psychoanalysts who were also lively conversationalists probably had some impact as well. >> continue

In addition to his psychoanalytic training Pohlmann is currently attending a training course for qualifying as a boxing trainer.



DWP: What brought you to psychoanalysis?

Moritz Pohlmann: The time that I spent with a man named Peter, had an important part in it. Peter was "resident" in a house in Ireland, where I spent a year after graduating taking care of formerly homeless people. With Peter, who had crashed after a breakup, I spent many hours discussing the trajectories of our own life, hopes, big issues, the little things and experiences of everyday life. Sometimes we were even silent and listened to the bubbling of the fish aquarium which stood in the corner. To experience the effect of shared closeness and reciprocal listening was for me then a beneficial-happy experience that also led me to the desire to study psychology. During this time, I also began reading intensively psychological writings, at first mainly of existential-oriented authors: Ernest Becker, Viktor Frankl, Irvin Yalom. Their basic idea that neurotic suffering is always also a struggle with fundamental questions of human existence under the conditions of the respective time and the individual history of the patients, has always appealed to me. >> continue

DWP: What brought you to psychoanalysis?

Katrin Hofer: At first it was simply a feeling. Through my studies of psychotherapy sciences, which I have also selected because I felt good about them, I was drawn increasingly towards psychoanalysis during the first semesters. I always thought that when I deal already with the psyche, than I should do it deeply. I want to get to the causes of a symptom and not only move the symptom. Understanding rather than explaining. >> continue

Reshe has written a number of book entries and academic articles published in top Russian- and English-language journals. She is also the author of more than 80 popular articles on philosophy, neurophilosophy and psychoanalysis.

Illuminating quotes:

"Freud´s thought is the most perennially open to revision...a thought in motion" (Lacan J., The Seminar of Jacques Lacan, Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1988, p.1.)

Freud himself never claimed thought he express to be an established and proven doctrine. Freud´s theory is a collection of guesses and sketches, that require further research, improvements and confirmation (to what Freud always points himself). For example, from Freud’s biography it is known that, for example, his "Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality," he rewrote and supplemented several times. For twenty years, while different versions of this work were published the changes made by Freud increased its size by half. In particular, the sections on infantile sexuality and pregenital development were added only nine years after the appearance of the first version of the work. In 1923, Freud himself confessed that in his research practice it often happened that what was old and what was more recent did not admit of being merged into an entirely uncontradictory whole, so he had to expose his thoughts to ruthless revision. >> continue

Gabriele Chorney: Back in the 1990’s after having raised two children I was questioning what to do with the “rest of my life”.  My husband and I struggled with supervising our son who tampered with street drugs. In order to afford a meaningful intervention we decided to start family therapy; which acquainted me with my present day analyst. The rest is history.

He is a philosopher, filmmaker and TV-producer. Since 2013 he dedicates himself to philosophy and his studies at the University Vienna.

His documentary series „Bohemian Life“, about the Vienna School of Fantastic Realism and its co-founder Ernst Fuchs, was published on the online art magazine spykeheels.com.



DWP: What led you to occupy yourself with psychoanalysis or with Freud and his achievements?

Thomas Heindl: I discovered Freuds Interpretaion of Dreams as a teenager on my parents´ bookshelf and read it. The person and the topic attracted me in an almost mystical way. Later, psychoanalysis became interesting to me in the context of interaction theory, which I am engaged with a lot, as well as Constructivism.


DWP: How did you come about the topic of your essay?

Thomas Heindl: The topic of Artificial Intelligence is socially and philosophically highly relevant. The mainly negative approaches which are spread through the media bother me. The actual topic resulted from my ambition to state a more positive point of view – the psychoanalytical connection came to me spontaneously during my writings.


DWP: Why would you like to have a psychoanalytic perspective or rather a psychoanalytic assessment regarding your essay from our readers?

Thomas Heindl: I am convinced, that psychoanalysis can have an important impact on a positive development of AI – this could prove to be crucial for a beneficial coexistence of mankind an AI. >> continue
