Read online Freud: In His Time and Ours.pdf PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Freud: In His Time and Ours Elisabeth Roudinesco offers a bold and modern reinterpretation of the iconic founder of psychoanalysis Based on new archival sources this is Freud s biography for the twenty first century a critical appraisal at once sympathetic and impartial of a genius greatly admired and yet greatly misunderstood in his own time and in ours .

Roudinesco traces Freud s life from his upbringing as the eldest of eight siblings in a prosperous Jewish Austrian household to his final days in London a refugee of the Nazis annexation of his homeland She recreates the milieu of fin de siecle Vienna in the waning days of the Habsburg Empire an era of extraordinary artistic innovation given luster by such luminaries as Gustav Klimt Stefan Zweig and Gustav Mahler In the midst of it all at the modest residence of Berggasse Freud pursued his clinical investigation of nervous disorders blazing a path into the unplumbed recesses of human consciousness and desire .

Yet this revolutionary who was overthrowing cherished notions of human rationality and sexuality was in his politics and personal habits in many ways conservative Roudinesco shows In his chauvinistic attitudes toward women and in his stubborn refusal to acknowledge the growing threat of Hitler until it was nearly too late even the analytically minded Freud had his blind spots Alert to his intellectual complexity the numerous tensions in his character and thought that remained unresolved Roudinesco ultimately views Freud less as a scientific thinker than as the master interpreter of civilization and culture by Élisabeth Roudinesco, Catherine Porter

Why do some people still choose psychoanalysis Freud s so called talking cure when numerous medications are available that treat the symptoms of psychic distress so much faster Elisabeth Roudinesco tackles this difficult question exploring what she sees as a depressive society an epidemic of distress addressed only by an increasing reliance on prescription drugs br br Far from contesting the efficacy of new medications like Prozac Zoloft and Viagra in alleviating the symptoms of any number of mental or nervous conditions Roudinesco argues that the use of such drugs fails to solve patients real problems In the man who takes Viagra without ever wondering why he is suffering from impotence and the woman who is given antidepressants to deal with the loss of a loved one Roudinesco sees a society obsessed with efficiency and desperate for the quick fix br br She argues that the talking cure and pharmacology represent not just different approaches to psychiatry but different worldviews The rush to treat symptoms is itself symptomatic of an antiseptic and depressive culture in which thought is reduced to the firing of neurons and desire is just a chemical secretion In contrast psychoanalysis testifies to human freedom and the power of language, Dans quel contexte la psychanalyse est elle n e Comment s est elle r pandue Quelles vogues quels d bats quels combats a t elle suscit s Quelles ont t les enjeux de ses querelles intestines Ni les questions ni les r ponses ne manquent lisabeth Roudinesco historienne et psychanalyste dans son vaste ouvrage consacr l histoire du mouvement analytique depuis le s jour de Freud Paris o il suivit les le ons de Charcot sur l hyst rie la Salp tri re jusqu la dissolution par Lacan en de l cole freudienne p En Freud publie i L Interpr tation des r ves i Les premi res soci t s psychanalytiques se cr ent en Europe un peu avant la Grande Guerre En France la Soci t psychanalytique de Paris fond e seulement en diffuse une lecture tr s appauvrie de l oeuvre freudienne C est apr s la Derni re Guerre avec les travaux de Jacques Lacan que Paris devient une capitale vivante du mouvement analytique p p Marxisme surr alisme h g lianisme structuralisme heideggerianisme lisabeth Roudinesco nous raconte ici comment la psychanalyse eut rendez vous avec toutes les grandes aventures intellectuelles et philosophiques qui ont marqu le si cle i milio Balturi i p, Elisabeth Roudinesco offers a bold and modern reinterpretation of the iconic founder of psychoanalysis Based on new archival sources this is Freud s biography for the twenty first century a critical appraisal at once sympathetic and impartial of a genius greatly admired and yet greatly misunderstood in his own time and in ours br br Roudinesco traces Freud s life from his upbringing as the eldest of eight siblings in a prosperous Jewish Austrian household to his final days in London a refugee of the Nazis annexation of his homeland She recreates the milieu of fin de siecle Vienna in the waning days of the Habsburg Empire an era of extraordinary artistic innovation given luster by such luminaries as Gustav Klimt Stefan Zweig and Gustav Mahler In the midst of it all at the modest residence of Berggasse Freud pursued his clinical investigation of nervous disorders blazing a path into the unplumbed recesses of human consciousness and desire br br Yet this revolutionary who was overthrowing cherished notions of human rationality and sexuality was in his politics and personal habits in many ways conservative Roudinesco shows In his chauvinistic attitudes toward women and in his stubborn refusal to acknowledge the growing threat of Hitler until it was nearly too late even the analytically minded Freud had his blind spots Alert to his intellectual complexity the numerous tensions in his character and thought that remained unresolved Roudinesco ultimately views Freud less as a scientific thinker than as the master interpreter of civilization and culture, Jacques Lacan continues to be subject to the most extravagant interpretations Angelic to some he is demonic to others To recall Lacan s career now that the heroic age of psychoanalysis is over is to remember an intellectual and literary adventure that occupies a founding place in our modernity Lacan went against the current of many of the hopes aroused by but embraced their paradoxes and his language games and wordplay resonate today as so many injunctions to replace rampant individualism with a heightened social consciousness br br Widely recognized as the leading authority on Lacan lisabeth Roudinesco revisits his life and work what it was and what it remains
