Found in Translation: A Day With Mark Solms

Mark Solms, Ph.D.In the first of two lectures in this program, Freud in Translation: German to English, Professior Solms, will introduce a powerful new perspective on emotional and mental life. How is it that Sigmund Freud, who saw himself as a natural scientist, described the mental apparatus as the ‘Seelenapparat’, or ‘apparatus of the soul’? Solms’ forthcoming new translation, The Revised Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud, combines a literary perspective with deep insight into the emotionally immediate language of German science. This revised translation reveals Freud in new ways as a person, a writer and a thinker, while presenting an enriched view of human subjectivity.

In the second lecture, Freud in Translation: Psychoanalysis to Neuroscience, Professor Solms will clarify how Neuropsychoanalysis, emphasizing the subjective experience of mind, is precisely the opposite of reductionist neuroscience. Clinical examples, as well as recent neuroscience discoveries, will illustrate what psychoanalysis has to gain from Neuropsychoanalysis, exploring concepts of symbolism, repression, and consciousness itself.

Three discussants will interact with Professor Solms, and there will be ample time for questions and discussion from those in attendance.

Educational Objectives:
Participants will be able to
  • describe how Freud, as a German-speaking man of science and the humanities, wrote in everyday language understandable to the German-speaking reader, rather than the technical language of Strachey’s “English gentleman of science.”
  • summarize new material from Freud that has come to light since the publication of the Standard Edition, including material previously suppressed.
  • outline the surprising history of translations of Freud’s work, revealing substantive controversies, {such as those revealed in the book Whose Freud? The Place of Psychoanalysis in Contemporary Culture), as well as in literary controversies.
  • describe how Neuropsychoanalysis is precisely the opposite of reductionist neuroscience because of the emphasis on the subjective experience of mind in Neuropsychoanalysis.
  • explain how Neuropsychoanalysis supports certain familiar concepts in psychoanalysis (such as a Freudian view of dream interpretation), while promoting the revision of other concepts (such as early childhood memory and consciousness itself).
  • demonstrate how Neuropsychoanalysis promotes an enriched concept of mind through its ability to articulate how observations of the subjective life of the mind correlate with models of the mental apparatus based upon neuroscientific observations.
