Imagination and Ethical Ideals
Imagination and Ethical Ideals (August 1994)
Prospects for a Unified Philosophical and Psychological Understanding
Nathan L. Tierney - Author

"Tierney gives us an account of moral ideals that is philosophically sophisticated, psychologically realistic, and sensitive to our nature as imaginative moral creatures. Moral philosophy is desperately in need of such an account, if it is going to address the needs and motivations of actual human beings. With brevity, subtlety, and deep insight, Tierney shows us what is unsatisfactory about a morality grounded on universal rules and based on a noti...(Read More)

Genuinely interdisciplinary in approach, The Meaning of Irony brings together literary analysis and, from psychoanalysis, both theory and case studies. Its investigation ranges from everyday examples of verbal irony--conscious and unconscious--to the complex irony of literature.

This book provides the first full account of verbal irony from a psychoanalytic point of view. Stringfellow shows how the rhetorical tradition, by viewing the ...(Read More)
 
 
Dual Allegiance
Dual Allegiance (June 1994)
Freud as a Modern Jew
Moshe Gresser - Author

"Gresser weaves an immense amount of specific, detailed information into a fascinating argument that is of great interest to anyone interested in Freud as a person and not just as a thinker. In doing so, the book adds another dimension to the understanding of Freud's connection with Judaism. It pulls together a number of contributory elements in Freud's experience of his own Jewishness and articulates them particularly in connection with his views...(Read More)
 
 
Nietzsche and Psychoanalysis
Nietzsche and Psychoanalysis (December 1993)
Daniel Chapelle - Author

This book presents a reading of the Nietzschean thought of the eternal return of all things and relates it to Freud's psychoanalysis of the repetition compulsion. Nietzsche's eternal return and Freud's repetition compulsion have never before been so seriously compared. The manner in which this study is executed is drastically different from usual Nietzsche scholarship and Freud studies. Chapelle works with his material until it acquires archetypa...(Read More)

Psyche and Text
Psyche and Text (August 1993)
The Sublime and the Grandiose in Literature, Psychopathology, and Culture
Henry Sussman - Author

Sussman here explores the relevance and value of object-relations theory to literature and literary studies. His study of character treats literature as a medium in which important relationships to conceptualized others--artifacts, mentors, activities, and schools of thought--are being worked through. Although rooted in the psychoanalytical model, this book is ultimately a study of character and of the conditions of subjectivity and intellectual w...(Read More)
 
 
Spiritualism and the Foundations of C. G. Jung's Psychology
Spiritualism and the Foundations of C. G. Jung's Psychology (April 1993)
F. X. Charet - Author

He demonstrates that Jung's early life was influenced by the experiences,beliefs, and ideas that characterized Spiritualism and that arose out of the entangled relationship that existed between science and religion in the late nineteenth century. Spiritualism, following it inception in 1848, became a movement that claimed to be a scientific ...(Read More)
 
 
The Functions of Dreaming
The Functions of Dreaming (March 1993)
Alan Moffitt - Editor
Milton Kramer - Editor
Robert Hoffmann - Editor

"Understanding dreaming is essential to a comprehensive account of the nature of the mind. After all, we spend a third of our lives sleeping; as the chapters of this book amply demonstrate, important mental activity goes on during sleep, and psychology cannot be complete as long as it ignores the mind asleep and dreaming. The editors have done a commendable job of bringing together a wide variety of views of the 'elephant of the dark.' I found re...(Read More)
 
 
Shattered Forms
Shattered Forms (September 1992)
Art Brut, Phantasms, Modernism
Allen S. Weiss - Author

Art Brut, also termed Outsider Art, has long been suppressed from most art historical writing. Why this rejection? The hyperbolic expressions of Romanticism and Symbolism nourished a desire for derangement and dissociation that inspired both Expressionism and Surrealism. Simulated delirium became the object of the new art -- experimental, avant-garde, modernist -- which arose from the fragmented codes, the shattered forms of everyday communicati...(Read More)
