Über diesen Titel


So who does own psychoanalysis? Equally pertinent, what is psychoanalysis? Even before the death of Sigmund Freud, psychoanalysis was splintering into different groups, each convinced of their superiority to the other. There was little co-operation between them plus a great deal of resentment, recrimination and suspicion. The status quo has been evolving slowly in recent years, with increased tolerance and communication between the different factions, leading to the birth of this book.The result is an international and inter-group collaboration of eminent psychoanalysts and scholars of psychoanalysis discussing and reflecting on the meaning psychoanalysis holds for them. Their contributions have been grouped into four sections: academic, historical, political and scientific. Each paper is varied in its subject matter, looking at such issues as psychoanalytic ownership, the genealogy of the word "psychotherapy", historical perspectives on the situation, whether there can be a monopoly on psychoanalysis, and the role of the brain in relation to the mind, and has been grouped according to its main theme.The result is a provocative, challenging and stimulating read for professionals, training candidates, students and laypeople with an interest in psychoanalysis. An important contribution to this long-standing debate that should not be missed.Contributors:Jorge L. Ahumada; Pearl Appel; Bernard Burgoyne; Ann Casement; Frank Cioffi; Morris Eagle; Peter Fonagy; Adolf Grunbaum; R.D. Hinshelwood; Pearl King; Darian Leader; Dany Nobus; Michael Pokorny; Paul Roazen; Elisabeth Roudinesco; Sonu Shamdasani; Mark Solms; Thomas Szasz; Mary Target; and Jerome Wakefield.


The idea for the book, "Who Owns Psychoanalysis," was sparked by the controversy that erupted two to three years ago while the editor, Ann Casement, was Chair of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). The controversy revolved around the fact that some of UKCP registrants who had previously been registered as "psychoanalytic psychotherapists" now wished to change their title to that of "psycho-analyst." This caused a tremendous furore in the psychoanalytic world with individuals, as well as organizations, arguing for and against this proposed change. This event was only the latest in a long history going back to early 20th century of who is entitled to be called "psychoanalyst." The current volume will be a hugely important contribution to a vital debate that has been around for almost as long as psychoanalysis itself. The contributors are mostly internationally-known members of the psychoanalytic world. The book has been divided into four sections: academic, historical, political and scientific, and each of the eighteen chapters has been allocated to the most appropriate section.Contributors include Jorge Ahumada, Pearl Appel, Bernard Burgoyne, Frank Cioffi, Morris Eagle, Peter Fonagy, Adolf Grunbaum, Robert Hinshelwood, Pearl King, Darian Leader, Dany Nobus, Michael Pokorny, Paul Roazen, Elisabeth Roudinesco, Sonu Shamadasani, Mark Solms, Thomas Szasz, Mary Target, and Jerome Wakefield
