1/9 Readings

Freud (1916): "On the History of the Psycho-Analytic Movement
Bergmann (1993): "Reflections on the History of Psychoanalysis"

Our theme this week is "Reconstructing Psychoanalytic History" so when looking at these two papers try to think about how an outsider might construe debates in the discipline and how this measures up to Freud's arguments for what Psychoanalysis should consist in. This will frame out reading of Jung and (a bit of) Adler.

Please leave comments if you have any questions that you would like to raise in discussion, or if there are points of information in need of clarification.
