New Prof. Rosine Perelberg introduces the course
In this course, Professor Perelberg traces the key contributions that psychoanalysis has brought to the understanding of sexuality. Starting with Freud’s revolutionary ideas on infantile sexuality, the course follows the contributions of Klein, Lacan, Green and Laplanche. It examines the importance of the notions of bisexuality and the paternal function to the understanding of the Oedipus complex.
This course consists of recorded lectures, a transcript of the lectures and a glossary of terms. There is also a series of optional live discussion groups led by Prof. Perelberg at the Institute in London.
