Seven thinkers born in 1889
and their relevance to psychotherapy
10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
In the annus mirabilis 1889 seven of the greatest 20th-century philosophers were born: R. G. Collingwood, Watsuji Tetsuro, Ludwig Wittgenstein, Oskar Becker, Martin Heidegger, Dietrich von Hildebrand, Gabriel Marcel. In four seminars, we explore their contributions. All seven throw light on the nature of human relationships and, explicitly or implicitly, on psychotherapy. Today we briefly look at Oskar Becker’s little-known thinking on ‘para-existence’ and ‘mantic divination’, but our main focus is Martin Heidegger’s work with Medard Boss on the daseinsanalytic foundations of psychotherapy, in the 1959-1969 Zollikon Seminars whose 50th anniversary falls this autumn. Your contribution to the discussion is welcome. Each seminar is self-contained. You may attend any or all.
Cost: Students £108, others £135; some bursaries; mineral water, coffee, tea, biscuits, liquorice allsorts included
