This Blog has been slow to start. Partly because there is plenty here about myself and my own personal development as a psychoanalyst.
However as I progress through my mid-eighties and wonder about the future of the world my children and grandchildren will inherit, I feel a concern about the problematic nature of the human race and the wonderous civilisaitons it has produce -- and which we have successviely destroyed. It is that fits-and-starts progress which is so unpredictable. And what I keep wondering is what psychoanalysis can say about that movement forrward in creative progess, with the halting moments of destruction which take centuries to recover from, and to embark on a further step forward.
Any thoughts on how the unconscious of individuals can agglomerate into national and supernational threats to the future of our cultures will be interesting food for thought
