Terrorism, Dehumanization, and the Dark Night of the Soul: Culture's Rendezvous with Psychoanalysis
"The relationship between psychoanalysis, psychotherapy and culture has been an uneasy and disjointed one. The "culture" that Freud first brought to our attention was a primitive, uncivilized, hedonic one that we unwittingly superimposed on the culture we consciously inhabited.The subject of this conference is the exploration of terrorism intra-psychically and internationally. Terrorism, individually and collectively, has dominated and defined the temper of our times. "
