ISBN Item Buy in Europe. Brought together for the first time in a single volume, these eight important and fascinating essays by Nobel Prize-winning psychiatrist Eric Kandel provide a breakthrough perspective on how biology has influenced modern psychiatric thought. The author concludes by calling for a revolution in psychiatry, one that can use the power of biology and cognitive psychology to treat the many mentally ill persons who do not benefit from drug therapy.
Fascinating reading for psychiatrists, psychoanalysts, social workers, residents in psychiatry, and trainees in psychoanalysis, Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis, and the New Biology of Mind records with elegant precision the monumental changes taking place in psychiatric thinking. It is an invaluable reference work and a treasured resource for thinking about the future.
Kandel M. We are guided on this intimate and exciting excursion not only by Dr. Kandel but also by other prominent pioneers in the investigation of the human mind, in both function and dysfunction.
Sigmund Freud | Institute of Psychoanalysis
Kandel's formative, psychoanalytically-oriented experiences in medical school and his psychiatry residency at Harvard's Massachusetts Mental Health Center, to his research training at the National Institute of Mental Health, to Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, where he has been studying for three decades the molecules in the brains of the sea snail, Aplysia californicus.
Kandel's personal, intellectual, and academic excursion represents the progress and potential of the fields of psychiatry, psychology and the behavioral sciences in integrating the understanding of mind and brain towards the purpose of helping those among us who suffer from mental disorders. As such, I recommend Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis, and the New Biology of the Mind as mandatory albeit, altogether enjoyable reading for all mental health professionals and for anyone else wishing to understand where science is taking us in the understanding the role of the brain and biology in mental processes and the human condition.
Yudofsky, M. This would have stirred up his oedipal conflict with his father and the guilt that went with it. The symptom allowed him not to sign and, through the physical pain of the paralysis, punished him for his guilty wish. Contradictory thoughts generate tensions in our minds, and symptoms in our bodies. Through listening carefully to his patients, Freud discovered that our conscious thought is just the tip of the iceberg: most of what we think takes place at an unconscious level, yet exerts powerful effects on our lives.
The other major discovery Freud made at the same time was about our need to rationalise. If a hypnotised subject is told there is no furniture in a room, and then instructed to cross it, he will naturally avoid the furniture. When asked why he took such an odd route, rather than admit the existence of the furniture he will invent false explanations: for example, the picture on the wall looked interesting so he moved towards it.
Rather than seeing these false explanations as restricted to the hypnotic state, Freud believed that they were a basic feature of the human ego. Although we might not crash into furniture, we spend every day deceiving ourselves about why we do things. We tell ourselves we love this person because of some inner quality, rather than because they share some trait with our mother. We think we get angry with our bosses because they are unreasonable, without noticing it is because they are echoing the behaviour of our father. We are excessively kind to other people, not realising this is overcompensation against our wish to harm them.
The world of the unconscious isn't nice. It's all about the sexuality and violence directed to those closest to us. These thoughts are unbearable, so we repress them. But repression is nearly always incomplete: the repressed returns in slips of the tongue, dreams and symptoms. By taking these strange phenomena seriously, we can be led back to our unconscious desires. Making this kind of connection can hardly ever happen through armchair introspection, and that is why Freud had to invent a new technique to access the unconscious.
The patient would lie on a couch and "free associate". As they said anything that came to mind, repetitive motifs would emerge, and little details would surface that allowed connections to be made. Repressed ideas seeking representation would use the most inconspicuous trivia to smuggle themselves past our psychical censorship. With dreams, for example, it is often the tiniest, seemingly trivial details that turn out to have the greatest significance. Psychoanalysis was thus a strange kind of conversation.
The patient would be speaking on a couch to a listener they couldn't see, following the associative threads of their discourse, however meaningless or random they seemed. Where many other therapies offered a straight face-to-face chat, with advice and guidance, here was something else. Analysis didn't even claim to offer cure or happiness. Freud compared it with a train ticket - an access to the unconscious - which we can either use or discard.
Yet it became clear to Freud and his colleagues that there is much more to the psyche than what we repress. The id, for example, was made up of drives that never fully became part of the unconscious. Later analysts explored those areas of our psychical life that were buried even deeper than the repressed.
