Books Info:

A Skin for Thought free pdf 'A Skin for Thought' takes the form of ten transcribed discussions between Didier Anzieu and Gilbert Tarrab, Professor at the Department of Administrative Sciences at the University of Quebec, recorded at a time when Professor Anzieu was in Montreal to deliver a series of lectures. A practitioner and theoretician of individual and group analysis, Anzieu speaks frankly of the origins and developments of his vocation, the stages of his training, and the evolution of his research. He explains the principal ideas he has developed: Group illusion, the psychic tasks of creativity, and the Skin Ego. In answer to Gilbert Tarrab's probing questions, Didier Anzieu recalls the distinctive atmosphere of his childhood, a first analysis with Lacan, the events of May 1968 at Nanterre, his literary ambitions, and his enthusiasm for psychodrama. By turns, the discussion focuses on the concept of the body, the group and the institution, and, from a psychological viewpoint, reflects critically upon the fascination of idealizes and the struggle for power, the structure and dynamics if the social unconscious, the decline of the University, and the ecological significance of the psychoanalytic situation. Didier Anzieu, Vice President of the Psychoanalytic Association of France and Emeritus Professor of Clinical Psychology at the University of Paris X-Nanterre, is the author of several books published in English translation. These include Freud's Self Analysis, The Group and the unconscious, and The Skin Ego. He has also edited and contributed to Psychic Envelopes, a collection of papers which further develops the Skin Ego concept.
