Interview: Helmut Dahmer talks to Martin Stanton

Martin Stanton

This interview was conducted in German in Frankfurt on 5 December 1990. The translation is by the interviewer.

Martin Stanton (MS): First of all, I would like to ask you some questions about your own contributions to psychoanalysis in Germany. You are well known in Germany for a whole range of things: first, for your publications, especially the immensely influential Libido und Gesellschaft (1973), which examines the relationship between psychoanalysis and radical left-wing politics; also as editor for years now of the journal Psyche; finally, you've been closely associated with the development of psychoanalytic social research in Germany, which led among other things to the foundation of the Hamburg Institut für Sozialforschung. It would be very useful for an English-speaking audience if you could say something about the historical background to this; also your own sense of historical precedents, as you've been very involved in reassessing the role of Siegfried Bernfeld and Wilhelm Reich in the development of German psychoanalysis.

Helmut Dahmer (HD): I began to study these things in the 1950s.
