Marx, Nietzsche, and Freud: The Physicians of Culture
– by Robinson Lilienthal, PhD, Rutgers University, Object Relations Institute
Thursday, May 31st 2018 @3:30 pm - 4:20 pm Room 910
Marx, Nietzsche, and Freud were the master cultural physicians of the late 19th – early 20th centuries. Their work provided a compelling symptomatology, diagnosis, prognosis, and therapy of their patient: modern European civilization. We owe our current understanding of alienation, nihilism, and neurosis to their probing insight; and the social sciences remain profoundly in their debt, including psychohistorical analysis. The medical metaphor underlying their theories, however, requires a clinical examination: how valid and useful is this metaphor for present and future research?
At the end of this educational activity, its participants will be able to:
1) analyze and discuss the ideas of Marx, Nietzsche, and Freud as examples of clinical work, at the level of society and culture, rather than of the individual;
2) identify the symptoms of societal diseases through the ideas of Marx, Nietzsche, and Freud.
