Philip Henry

Topics: History, Psychology
Products: Monograph

Phillip Henry received a 2021 Botstiber Grant to complete the research towards an intellectual history of interwar Freudian psychoanalysis. Titled States of Exception: The Interwar Crisis and the Remaking of Psychoanalysis, this monograph study focuses on the entwined practical and theoretical revisions of Freudianism over the 1920s and 1930s. Focusing on a group of pioneering analysts working mainly in Vienna but also in Budapest, Berlin, and London, this project explores how the social and political turmoil of the times led to a rethinking of the Freudian theory of the self, of the technique of analytic therapy, and indeed, of the very politics of psychoanalysis.
