Nigel Reeves & Anthony Stadlen conduct: Friedrich Schiller as Psychotherapist. Inner Circle Seminar 94 (6 November 2005)

Friedrich Schiller

Friedrich Schiller (1759-1805)

Nigel Reeves
Anthony Stadlen


Inner Circle Seminar No. 94
Sunday 6 November 2005
10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Not many people know that Germany’s great poet, dramatist, and philosopher of freedom, Friedrich Schiller, practised psychotherapy. Freud and Jung were both inspired by his psychological writings. He influenced Freud’s theory of drives and Jung’s theory of types. He anticipated Binswanger on existential Gestalt and Winnicott on play. Today, we honour the bicentenary year of Schiller’s death.

Professor Nigel Reeves OBE, Professor of German and Pro-Vice Chancellor of Aston University, is co-author of Friedrich Schiller: Medicine, Psychology and Literature (1978). Professor Reeves will discuss Schiller’s psychotherapy case study, ‘On Grammont’s Melancholy’. He will show how Schiller wrote his plays as a psychotherapy for his audience. This seminar is important for Freudian, Jungian and existential psychotherapists, and for anyone who wants to discover Schiller as a profound thinker of the existential foundations of psychotherapy.
