“Works in Progress” Seminar Series

Sex, text, ur-text: Freud’s Dora and the erotics of knowing

Wednesday, May 3, 2017
8:00 PM

Presenter: Adele Tuter, M.D., Ph.D.

This presentation draws on the first of a series of three essays on the erotics of knowing. The textual preoccupations of Freud’s case history of Dora encourage the proposition of its intertexual relationships with a referenced literary source (Arthur Schnitzler’s Paracelsus) as well as an occult ur-text (Émile Zola’s Une page d’amour). These two texts anticipate, and, I propose, suggest two of Dora's interrelated subtextual themes: the erotics of knowing and the problematics of reality. These subtexts are condensed within the leitmotif of textual suggestion: a symbolic elaboration of the tension between the therapeutic potential of knowing at the heart of Freud’s project, and the corruptive suggestion and unleashed erotic desire that can undermine and destroy it.

No CME or CE credits offered.

Scientific Program Meeting

Is there an unconscious organization of the couple?

Free For Members & NYPSI Students

Tuesday, May 9, 2017
8:00 PM

Presenters: Graciela Abelin-Sas Rose, MD and Peter Mezan, PhD
Discussants: Virginia Goldner, PhD and Eric Weitzner, MD

In this paper presentation, Drs. Abelin-Sas Rose and Mezan will discuss results of a collaborative study by two analysts working in two different modalities, individual and couple, with the same patients. Differences in the analysts’ perceptions of the patients, in the narratives presented by the patients, and in the transferences to the analysts and to the partner are considered. And the dynamics in the two settings, with the unconscious organization of the couple distinct from the unconscious organizations of the individuals, are discussed. The question of how, in the process of constituting the couple, the individual is transformed and acquires a new identity will constitute the primary focus of the presentation.

2 CME/CE credits offered.
