The Freud Museum is releasing the Second Series of our podcast ‘Freud in Focus’, presented by Tom DeRose and Jamie Ruers.

In these 4 episodes, we will discuss Freud’s fascinating foray into the field of Aesthetics, ‘The Uncanny’. Closely reading the text itself, we will attempt to draw out some of the themes and ideas that underpin one of Freud’s most thought-provoking works.

‘Freud in Focus 2: Episode 1’ will be aired on Wednesday, 24th August 2021 and a new episode will be released every other Wednesday.

You can listen to the first season of ‘Freud in Focus’ here.

Series Producer: Karolina Heller

In this episode, Tom and Jamie will look at the third and final Part of Freud’s The Uncanny, where Freud concludes by differentiating the uncanny in literature to real-life experiences.

 

Episode 2

In this episode, Tom and Jamie will be looking at part 2 of Freud’s paper The Uncanny, in which Freud delves into the wonderful world of Hoffmann’s ‘The Sandman’ and discusses doubles, hauntings and inexplicable repetitions in his search for the core of the uncanny effect.

In the first episode, Tom and Jamie will introduce Freud’s 1919 paper The Uncanny. We will look closely at the unusual structure of the first section in this 3-part essay.

    It is fascinating when Freud invites us to read the chapter as a symptom , trying to unveil the term Unheimliche. It s also possible to find in Freud what years later Lacan states as the primary of the signifier.

    Sorry about a wrong word in my prior comment. I would like to say the primacy of the signifier
