Pre-Socratic Greece and Pathways taken in Psychoanalysis


A seminar by Bernard Burgoyne

The seminar will look at some philosophical orientations to psychoanalysis – of which phenomenology is perhaps the richest – in relation to the direction these philosophies give to psychoanalytic theory, as well as to recommendations for psychoanalytic technique. As regards the problems and solutions proposed by such philosophies, many older answers have been neglected that Bernard Burgoyne intends to take up and explore in his seminar.
