Psychoanalysis and History in Conversation: A Dialogue with Thomas Kohut

Roger Frie, Ph.D., Psy.D., R.Psych., and Thomas Kohut, Ph.D.

In what ways do the fields of psychoanalysis and history interact and what can they learn from each other? In the attempt to bring psychoanalysis and history into conversation, I enter into dialogue with the German historian and psychoanalyst by training, Thomas Kohut. We discuss the challenges facing psychoanalysis today; Kohut’s own history in relation to the evolution of psychoanalysis and the work of his father, Heinz Kohut; and the theme of German history and the Holocaust. We explore ways of overcoming the obstacles for cross-disciplinary dialogue and consider the importance of psychoanalytic understanding and empathy.
