Fees: $390

Preregistration is required.


Instead of surveying the thought of particular psychoanalytic theorists as was done in 2015 and again in 2016 (see video-lectures here), this year “Freud and Beyond” will instead review psychoanalytic contributions to the understanding of a range of particular topics: The Unconscious; Applied Psychoanalysis – ‘Alien’; Narcissism; Group Psychology; Religion; Superego and Conscience; Is “Tragic Man” Guilty?; Clarifying and Deconstructing Winnicott.

Readings will be suggested or supplied for each seminar.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of the course the participants will be able:

  1. To survey psychoanalytic contributions to the understanding of such centrally important human phenomena as religion, group psychology, narcissism, etc.
  2. To compare and contrast different psychoanalytic approaches to these phenomena.
  3. To critically evaluate psychoanalytic theories in these areas.
