Heidegger’s Zollikon Seminars. 11. Psychoanalytic Theory of ‘Projection’. Anthony Stadlen conducts Inner Circle Seminar 245 (9 December 2018)

Heidegger’s Zollikon Seminars

A 50th-anniversary revaluation

11. Heidegger and Boss discuss Freud (4)
(Taormina, April 1963)

‘If ... it were really a question of a projection here,

then ... I myself would suddenly be a good man.’

Anthony Stadlen
Inner Circle Seminar No. 245
9 December 2018
10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Martin Heidegger
at home, Freiburg
Martin Heidegger  Medard Boss
Feldweg, Messkirch, 1963


We are exploring the background discussions between the philosopher Martin Heidegger and the psychiatrist Medard Boss to Heidegger’s 1959-1969 seminars in Boss’s Zollikon home as reported in the book Zollikon Seminars. We have seen that, in their April 1963 conversations in TaorminaSicily, Heidegger confirms Freud’s discoveries of transference, repression, etc. – but as ecstatic-intentional world-relationship’, not as natural-scientistic metapsychology’. You are cordially invited to join our discussion of Heidegger’s fundamental restatement of Freud’s concept of projection’ as just such an ecstatic-intentional world-relationship’.

The Inner Circle Seminars were founded by Anthony Stadlen in 1996 as an ethical, existential, phenomenological search for truth in psychotherapy. They have been kindly described by Thomas Szasz as ‘Institute for Advanced Studies in the Moral Foundations of Human Decency and Helpfulness’. But they are independent of all institutes, schools, and universities.
