Freud – these classes will argue – was a social thinker. Our question will be: what does that mean? Famous for his controversial views on sexuality, Freud is less known for his equally challenging engagement with war, ethics, group identity and faith. During these four classes our in-depth focus will be on: `Thoughts for the Time on War and Death,’ `Mass Psychology and the Analysis of the “I”’, Civilisation and its Discontents, Moses and Monotheism, with ample opportunity to digress, or rather follow the path they offer, into some of the most intractable dilemmas of the modern world.
This event is also part of the Sydney School for Critical Social Thought 2017
