About this event

This talk aims to introduce the historical and philosophical foundations of psychoanalysis and analytical psychology as a way of providing a fuller contextual understanding of key concepts, texts and clinical practices, and the critical framework through which they emerged. We will be looking at the development of analytic practice through the synthesis of scientific materialism and the romantic movement at the end of the 18th century. We will trace the roots of analytic ideas and techniques as early as in classical and pre-classical thought, and explore their role and relevance in the 21st century.
