Town Hall Seattle says
Popularized by Freud, psychoanalysis has long been used to understand the complexities of the brain, but the dwindling field is a ghost of what it once was. New York Times contributor Casey Schwartz (who also holds a degree in neuroscience) says that psychoanalysis, thought to be outdated by many, still holds valuable insight into human nature. In her book In the Mind Fields (called “brilliant and enthralling” by The Atlantic’s Scott Stossel) she explores the seemingly opposite approaches of psychoanalysis and neuroscience–merging the best of both into the “new science of neuropsychoanalysis.” She’ll give an account of the clash between these two fields, extract the most important lessons from each, and, possibly, give a little insight into what exactly makes our brains–and personalities–work.
