This course offers a careful critical examination of major original works of Freud from its very beginning of his publication on hysteria to his later works on the extent to which the work of psychoanalysis is greatly limited by the strength of the instincts in terms of its capacity to produce permanent cure. The emphasis of this course is on the careful delineation of how Freudís concepts of the ďobjectĒ is present in his major works, and how his thinking contributed extensively to current theoretical positions on object relations.
In this context, we examine his work on symptom formation, narcissism, sexuality, masochism, to name a few. Students are expected to read these original works, which are also supplemented with other relevant writings from current thinkers.
Themes to be covered in class:
- Freudís formulation on symptom formation
- Differences/similarities of Freudís view of the structure/function of the mind and those of Fairbairn, Winnicott, Sullivan, etc.
- Discussion on the nature and quality of the unconscious.
- Normal vs. abnormal developments in the working through of instinctual demands.
- Obstacles to meaningful and productive co-existence with others.
- Curative moments in psychoanalytic treatments.
