'A Dangerous Method'

THE FREUD EXPOSURE

Our youngest son, Gregory Rikowski, has recently been taking a very lively and critical interest in Psychology, Psychoanalysis and the work of Sigmund Freud and of the Freud family in general.

Leading on from this, he wrote an article about it all, entitled ‘Freudian Crisis in the Modern Era’, which is now on our ‘The Flow of Ideas’ website, see: http://www.flowideas.co.uk/print.php?page=402&slink=yes.

Continuing with this theme, Ruth and I have recently been to see the newly released film: ‘A Dangerous Method’, which focuses on Jung and Freud (although more on the former). The film is directed by David Cronenberg and stars Keira Knightley, as mentally tormented Sabina Spielrein, a Jewish Russian-born patient of Jung’s; Michael Fassbender as Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung, and Viggo Mortensen as Sigmund Freud.

Critical Pedagogy

DESPERATE TIMES AT MESA COLLEGE by JOHN J. CROCITTI



A new piece has been inserted on the ‘Contributions’ section of The Flow of Ideas website – Desperate Times at Mesa College – by John J. Crocitti.

John considers the difficulties of trying to undertake worthwhile teaching at community college at places like Mesa College, USA.

He focuses on topics such as the problems of burn out, the associated difficulties of encouraging critical thinking, and the difficulties of successfully nurturing advanced and able students.

HISTORICAL MATERIALISM AND FUNCTIONAL EXPLANATION – AN ESSAY BY ALEXANDER RIKOWSKI

Does historical materialism need to appeal to functional explanation? If not, how can historical materialism otherwise be made consistent? If so, is this a strength or a weakness?

WHISKEY BREATH CONFESSIONAL – BY NEIL WHITEHEAD

An Item from the ‘Thirty-Ninth News Update’ of Ruth Rikowski (News Update No.39) 

‘WHISKY BREATH CONFESSIONAL’ BY NEIL WHITEHEAD

http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/1356191

My second cousin, Neil Whitehead, who also designed our ‘Flow of Ideas’ website, has just (May 2010) self-published a book on photography, using the Blurb software. By strange coincidence this is the same software that Martin Hodges used to self-publish his little book, ‘Word of Eye’, which I referred to in a previous newsletter.

As it says in the publicity for Neil’s book:

“Whisky Breath Confessional is a visual narrative into the world of Neil Whitehead, an undergraduate to an art photography degree. He is a diligent and observant photographer that searches out intriguing insight into life in the cities of England. The book Whisky Breath Confessional-as the name suggests-shows a confession to an outlook of the artist. Showing a poetic and suspenseful series of photographs that take the viewer on a quiet tour of his environment.”

Furthermore, that Neil Whitehead:

“…is a photographer that pursues opportunities to express emotions, and raise questions and intrigue in all of his photos. His photographs pertain to a style and philosophy that is unique and is growing.”

37 pages of the book can be previewed online. There are some lovely scenes in it, with some very interesting and different views and perspectives.

Neil is currently studying at Southampton University for a degree in Photography.

I wish Neil all the very best with his book, and hope that it sells lots of copies. I shall, of course, be ordering and reviewing the book myself.

An Item from the ‘Fortieth News Update’ of Ruth Rikowski (News Update No.40)

NEIL WHITEHEAD’S BOOK, WHISKY BREATH CONFESSIONAL, BLURB CREATIVE PUBLISHING SERVICE, 2010, ARRIVED IN THE POST http://www.blurb.com/bookstore/detail/1356191

We have now received in the post our own copy of my second cousin, Neil Whitehead’s book, Whisky Breath Confessional. The photographs are very colourful, powerful, reflective, convey certain moods and are all on fine quality paper. They include photographs of the sea, trees, the sun, buildings, hedges, roads and of Neil himself. The self-published book was compiled using the Blurb software (Blurb creative publishing service, for self-publishing books) which seems to be quite something. This is a trend that we might well see increasing in the future. I wish Neil all the very best with his book, and hope that he sells lots of copies.

LEARNING OUTCOMES: THE ABSURD BECOMES LOGICAL

This is the title of a topical and important new paper by John J. Crocitti, Professor of History, San Diego Mesa College which is now available at The Flow of Ideas web site.

As Professor Crocitti notes:

“Ultimately, the drive towards SLO [Student Learning Outcomes] constitutes an effort by politicians, business people, opportunist professors and bureaucrats to deskill and control academic labor in the manner that management applied Taylorism to industrial labor during the early twentieth century”
