Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

Psychoanalysis, Experiential History, and Empathy

Roger Frie, Ph.D., Psy.D., R.Psych.

This article focuses on the intersection of psychoanalysis and history by examining the work of the German historian and psychoanalyst by training, Thomas Kohut. The way in which history shapes the psyche and the importance of seeing psychological experience in its wider social, cultural, and historical context are emphasized. The notions of experiential history and empathy are explored, particularly as they relate to Kohut’s understanding modern German history and the perpetration of the Holocaust. His detailed examination of the German generation of perpetrators and enablers is elaborated, and his analysis of the culture that shaped them is considered.
