CafeLitt 152: Freud and roots of psychoanalytic theory

Thu 7 Jan 2010, 19:00, by Mehdi Keshtkar, at Bistro Burritoville:3rd floor, 2055 Rue Bishop, Montreal,QC (Map)

"Freud's psychoanalytic theory not only influenced psychology and psychotherapy but also the humanities and social sciences. While having many followers and being known as the father of psychoanalysis; his ideas have been criticized toughly.
This session focuses on Freud's revolutionary theory of psychoanalysis. His theory on Psychic energy and pleasure principle will be explained in brief and then the roots, backgrounds and circumstances of developing the fundamental principles of the theory will be discussed."

در دورانی که روانشناسان در توضیح پدیده های روانی ناتوان بودند و به طور عمده به دسته بندی پدیدارشناختی و نام گذاری بیماری ها اكتفا می كردند، فروید با كاوش در ریشه و معنای این پدیده ها راه دیگری باز كرد. دستاورد عظیم زیگموند فروید صرفاً به روانكاوی محدود نمی شود، بلكه حوزه های گوناگون و وسیعی چون علوم اجتماعی، نقد ادبی، الاهیات، نظریه انتقادی و غیره را نیز دربرگرفته است.

اما طرح نظرات غیر معمول فروید برایش دشمنان زیادی تراشید و بسیاری او را بیرحمانه نقد کرده اند. در این جلسه خطوط کلی نظریات فروید بیان می شود و سعی بر آن است تا زمینه ها و چارچوب های فکری که نظریه روانکاوی فروید بر پایه آن بنا نهاده شده است مورد بررسی قرار گیرد

About us

CaféLitt is not a place; it is a gathering of minds. We are a group of mostly Persian young students, scholars and professionals who gather every Thursday evening around 19h00 in a café to discuss various subjects and share different ideas, ranging vastly from history to science, from literature to fine arts. We started these gatherings on Jan 18th, 2007. Each week, one of us takes the responsibility of presenting a topic (in Persian, English or French) for about an hour in a subject s/he is intimately familiar with or has an expertise in. Afterwards, the evening turns into a discussion forum and all members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask their question(s) and share their points of view.
CaféLitt is open to all comments, suggestion, collaboration and new ideas. CaféLitt provides an unparalleled opportunity for learning about culture, science and philosophy in a relaxed and friendly environment, and for sharing your knowledge and expertise with like-minded members of your community.
CaféLitt is officially registered as a non-profitable group and is a nonpartisan, nonreligious and nonpolitical entity.
