27 September 2012 - 13 December 2012
Thursday evenings 6.30 - 8.30pm
Introducing Freud at the Freud Museum
12 week evening course
The first session will introduce the course and address the most important questions about the nature and status of psychoanalysis and Freud's standing at the present time. In the remaining 11 sessions we will work our way through Freud's writings - each lecture will be based on a short reading from Freud - and all the readings will be taken from: 'THE FREUD READER' edited by Peter Gay (Vintage Books 1995), which will be explained in detail and critically discussed.
No prior knowledge will be assumed and you will be guided by an experienced tutor with many years' teaching experience.
Tutor: Keith Barrett BA PhD
Having received his PhD from the Wellcome Centre for the History of Medicine at University College London, Dr Barrett specialises in both philosophy and psychoanalysis and has taught at several leading institutions, including Imperial College and Birkbeck College.
