'Disappointment, Stoicism and the Future of Psychoanalysis and the Public Sphere' 33K
This is a revised version of a short talk, designed to stimulate debate, delivered to the opening plenary session of the Tenth Annual Conference on Psychoanalysis and the Public Sphere, November 1996. I consider what we have achieved in the decade and then discuss the concept of disappointment and the failures of process which have particularly troubled me. I also consider the concept of stoicism and offer my own shopping list of political tasks for the future.
