The idea that of "screen stories" was once brought by way of Freud for the 1st time in his 1899 paper, reprinted right here in its entirety. even if the medical curiosity in "screen stories" has probably reduced in fresh analytic dialogue, there's a lot to be received from revisiting and re-examining either the phenomenon and Freud's unique paper inside of a modern context. To this finish, Gail S. Reed and Howard B. Levine have invited contributions from 8 prime psychoanalysts at the present that means and cost to them of the display reminiscence notion.
These reviews come from modern psychoanalysts practising in Italy, Francophone Switzerland, Argentina, Israel, and the USA of the United States, every one of whom has been knowledgeable in a single or one other of numerous psychoanalytic traditions, between that are ego psychology, a French model of Freud, an American model of Lacan and at the least variations of Kleinian thought--one British and one Latin American. Their reviews variety from advocating that reveal stories are an enormous, even imperative, function of latest analytic paintings (LaFarge, Cohen), to discovering the concept that much less universally acceptable, yet still compelling (Ahumada).
The editors wish that the come upon with those inventive and thought-provoking commentaries will supply new desiring to our appreciation of this significant medical phenomenon and stimulate extra study and medical statement into its origins and makes use of.
