The Revision Of Psychoanalysis

by Erich Fromm Rainer Funk

In 1965 Erich Fromm became professor emeritus of psychoanalysis at the National Autonomous University of Mexico City. In the same year he finished his field research on the social character of the Mexican peasant village Chiconcuac. Released from his obligations at the university and free for a new project, he applied to various funding organizations for money to undertake a "Systematic Work on Humanistic Psychoanalysis," which he had decided to write in the course of the next few years. It was conceived as a work of three to four volumes that would deal with the complete range of psychoanalytic theory and practice. He intended nothing less than a dialectic revision.

Argumentation, Communication, and Fallacies: A Pragma-dialectical Perspective

by Rob Grootendorst Frans H. van Eemeren

This volume gives a theoretical account of the problem of analyzing and evaluating argumentative discourse. After placing argumentation in a communicative perspective, and then discussing the fallacies that occur when certain rules of communication are violated, the authors offer an alternative to both the linguistically-inspired descriptive and logically-inspired normative approaches to argumentation. The authors characterize argumentation as a complex speech act in a critical discussion aimed at resolving a difference of opinion. The various stages of a critical discussion are outlined, and the communicative and interactional aspects of the speech acts performed in resolving a simple or complex dispute are discussed. After dealing with crucial aspects of analysis and linking the evaluation of argumentative discourse to the analysis, the authors identify the fallacies that can occur at various stages of discussion. Their general aim is to elucidate their own pragma- dialectical perspective on the analysis and evaluation of argumentative discourse, bringing together pragmatic insight concerning speech acts and dialectical insight concerning critical discussion.

Dreaming Identities: Class, Gender, And Generation In 1980s Hollywood Movies

by Elizabeth G. Traube

In this book Elizabeth Traube argues that over the course of the 1980s, Hollywood participated in a wider move by mainstream political and social forces that attempted to absorb and contain critical cultural currents by rehabilitating images of masculine authority. At the movies we saw parallel construetions of wild, antibureaucratic warrior-heroes and smooth, seemingly rebellious tricksters adapted to the corporate order. We saw the demonization of the independent woman and the complementary formation of the nurturing father as her adversary. The author relates these representations to two cultural narratives of long duration—the American frontier myth and the myth of success, or the American dream, both of which also figured prominently in the rhetorical themes of Reagan-era politics. Utilizing structuralism, Marxism, feminist object relations psychoanalysis, and neoformalist film criticism, Traube emphasizes specific aspects of cinematic representations of gender and authority to explore the relationships between culture and politics. Unlike other feminist critics of “patriarchal Hollywood,†she stresses the multiple, competing versions of masculinity and femininity constructed in Hollywood movies and the different class positions of their primary, intended audiences. Attention to particular forms that cultural narratives assume in changing circumstances gives Traube’s film analyses a unique sociohistorical dimension, while her focus on narratives used by political elites as well as by moviemakers reveals significant variations in ideology production in different sites.

Deaf Students in Postsecondary Education (Routledge Library Editions: Special Educational Needs #20)

by Susan B. Foster Gerard G. Walter

First published in 1992. With an ever-increasing number of deaf students entering higher education throughout the world, major strides need to be made in provision and support for them. This book recognises that the integration of deaf students into mainstream higher education raises complex and challenging problems. It has proved extremely difficult for deaf students to enter fully into the social and extra-curricular fabric of campus life – an essential factor in ensuring student success. The authors provide an assessment of state-of-the-art practice in postsecondary settings and suggest theoretical and practical approaches to providing support. There is discussion of the attainments of deaf graduates with commentaries by deaf persons about their experiences in college. In addition, statistics support the theoretical contentions and clearly demonstrate the benefits of postsecondary education to deaf people.

Operational Costs in Acquisitions (Routledge Library Editions: Library and Information Science #63)

by James R. Coffey

This book, first published in 1991, examines the actual costs of operating an acquisitions department. Acquisitions and business librarians have written eight highly practical chapters that will allow you to see beyond the obvious materials budget to the hidden but often enormous internal expenditures involved in the daily operation of your acquisitions department. These experts discuss the costs involved in pre-order searching; managing exceptions to the work flow; implementing an integrated online system; automating serials acquisitions; supporting personnel: interviewing and hiring, training, performance, mistakes, absenteeism, staff development; performing public relations / extra services requested by faculty and patrons; organizing payment operations; and processing invoices. Each chapter, in addition to identifying the costs, illustrates what happens to make costs expand and proposes suggestions for controlling the costs.

In Defense of Schreber: Soul Murder and Psychiatry

by Henry Zvi Lothane

In this stunning reappraisal of the celebrated case of Daniel Paul Schreber, Lothane takes the reader on a richly documented tour of all the ingredients that made Schreber's illness a unique psychiatric event. Building outward from a close examination of Schreber's troubled relationship to his two psychiatrists, Flechsig and Weber, Lothane elaborates the personal, familial, and cultural contexts of Schreber's illness. Incorporating extensive new archival and bibliographic research, and providing extensive accounts of the personalities and theories of Schreber's two psychiatrists, Paul Flechsig and Guido Weber, Zvi Lothane offers a stunning reappraisal of the Schreber case that overturns virtually all previous opinion. Lothane examines both the man and his milieu in a way that allows the reader fresh access not only to the tragedy of Schreber's illness but also to his heroic, if doomed, attempts to come to terms with his condition through writing. In the process, he persuasively demonstrates that important issues of both psychiatric diagnosis and psychoanalytic interpretation have heretofore been compromised by a failure to pay sufficient attention to Schreber's interpersonal, cultural, and historical contexts.
