Freudian Theory in the Light of Contemporary Neuroscience (Visiting Professor)
Mark Solms, Ph.D.
Director, The International Neuro-Psychoanalysis Centre, London
Chair in Neuropsychology, University of Cape Town, South Africa
In this comprehensive presentation Dr. Solms takes us on a fascinating journey to evaluate the standing of Freud's basic theoretical claims in the light of contemporary neuroscientific knowledge. He will provide a broad overview of Freud's major theoretical claims, concerning the overall workings of the mind in health and disease, and will assess their standing in relation to our present knowledge. In addition to his other scholarly work, Dr. Solms is translator and editor of the forthcoming Revised Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud and The Complete Neuroscientific Works of Sigmund Freud.
