Visiting Scholars Weekend: “A new perspective on Freud’s thinking on truth, it’s foundational role in psychoanalysis, and its contemporary relevance”

April 26 @ 6:30pm - 8:00pm EDT

Rachel Blass presents “A new perspective on Freud’s thinking on truth, it’s foundational role in psychoanalysis, and its contemporary relevance.”

At the foundation of Freud’s thinking is the idea that psychopathology is the result of denial. Truths denied lead to a distorted reality and accordingly coming to know these truths, discovering the true meanings underlying distortions, is what defines psychoanalytic practice and cure. A common criticism of this approach, (within psychoanalysis, as well as outside of it) ?is that it is a limited intellectual and “positivistic” one; it neglects relational, experiential, environmental and “pre-meaning” sources of pathology and modes of cure and hence it is ineffectual and rightly has been replaced by new analytic perspectives.
