Psychobiography Reading Group
of the Psychohistory Forum
January 13th, 2024 (11:00am – 1pm EDT; room opens at 10:30 am)
For our 6th meeting, we will be READING:
Chapter 2: Sigmund Freud,
in Faces in a Cloud: Intersubjectivity and Personality Theory, by G. Atwood and R. Stolorow
Chapter 15: Freud as Leonardo: Why the First Psychobiography Went Wrong, by A. C. Elms, A.,
in W. T. Schultz, Handbook of Psychobiography
The Psychobiography Research and Publication Group of the Psychohistory Forum, with the strong support of Inna Rozentsvit and Ken Fuchsman, has created the virtual Psychobiography Reading Group. Our expectation is that we will meet once in two months and that we should work hard to keep this as a serious psychoanalytic approach to psychobiography. Subsequently, our focus will be on classic works of psychodynamic psychobiography, with the bottom-up approach rather coming from explicit underlying theories.
Please note that we usually choose short readings to ensure that they will be read ahead of time.
Individuals who have not done the readings for this group will need to stay muted to establish this as a true discussion group. Participation is free, but the registration/ RSVP is required
