Telling Facts: History and Narration in Psychoanalysis

Overview

In Telling Facts a distinguished group of psychoanalysts and scholars brings recent critical thinking to bear on the relationship of psychoanalysis and history.

Overview

In Telling Facts a distinguished group of psychoanalysts and scholars brings recent critical thinking to bear on the relationship of psychoanalysis and history. Although that relationship might seem self-evident, history and psychoanalysis have had particular trouble knowing where their shared boundary lies. Psychoanalyst Roy Schafer and historian Hayden White frame the discussion of that uncertainty by asserting the centrality of narrative process to the discovery and presentation of what counts as historical fact. Exploring both theory and practice, Telling Facts points to the ways psychoanalysis cannot stand outside the narrations of history it finds in individual analysands or in culture. Humphrey Morris, Cynthia Chase, and Joseph H. Smith look at the dynamics of disavowal and mourning in psychoanalytic theory's historical models. Dorrit Cohn discusses the misuse of literary categories to obscure the life-historical basis of Freud's case histories. Barbara Johnson uses the ideas of Heinz Kohut to reread Nella Larsen. Sherry Turkle considers the cultural appropriation of psychoanalytic categories in France and the Soviet Union. Other chapters discuss the transmission of knowledge within psychoanalysis, the history of Freud's views on seduction, the relationship between self-transformation in politics and psychoanalysis, and the historical significance of Paul Ricoeur's reading of Freud.
