Rabbi Rodney Mariner conducts: Freud on Jokes. Inner Circle Seminar 88 (8 May 2005)

Rabbi Rodney Mariner

Freud on Jokes (1905)

A Centenary Celebration

Rabbi Rodney Mariner
Anthony Stadlen


Inner Circle Seminar No. 88
Sunday 8 May 2005
10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Lacan thought Freud’s book Jokes and their Relation to the Unconscious (1905) more important than his epoch-making Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality published the same month. Should psychotherapists tell their clients jokes, as Freud did? Was Freud ‘acting out’? Does his theory do justice to the existential and spiritual meaning of jokes? Rabbi Rodney Mariner, renowned for his use of jokes to hint at the serious and profound, steeped in the Talmudic and mystical tradition from which Freud sprang, contributes his centenary reflections.
