This book was released on 2014 with total page 168 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Behind appearances, the masterpieces of mythology contain precious secrets. In their work, the authors include timeless messages addressed to History and to all mankind. So it is with the plays which Sophocles devoted to Oedipus more than 2400 years ago, which are still performed today. A new form of analysis, called transgenerational, enables us to penetrate behind the scenes, backstage in Sophocles' theatre. Actually, it is the discovery of a transgenerational structure underpinning Sophocles' work that changes everything. This discovery invites us to reconsider the entire story of Oedipus in a different light. By bringing out the unseen aspects of his work, we come to understand that Sophocles shared with the Ancients a veritable science of the "transgenerational." Through his Oedipus Rex and Oedipus at Colonus, he passes on this knowledge to use in the manner of the great tragedians, philosophers before their time, who played an important role as guides of the collective awareness of their time.

Summary Book Review Constructions and the Analytic Field :

Download or read book Constructions and the Analytic Field written by Domenico Chianese and published by Taylor & Francis. This book was released on 2007 with total page 230 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Constructions and the Analytic Field questions the relationship between psychoanalysis, history and literature. Does the analyst help the analysand construct a narrative, or is their task more of a historical reconstruction? In seeking to answer this question, Domenico Chianese examines Freud's writing, beginning with 'Constructions in Analysis' and ending in 'Moses and Monotheism', as well as the impressions of analytic method reflected in contemporary writers such as Thomas Mann, and historical writings from both sides of the Atlantic. Drawing on vivid and persuasive clinical examples, he argues that psychoanalysis creates a 'scenic space' between analysand and analyst, a theatrical space wherein the cast of the patient's interior world enter and exit from the scene. Drawing on the rich Italian psychoanalytic tradition, this original approach to the analytic field will be of interest to psychoanalysts, historians and literary experts.
