SCIENTIFIC MEETING: Canary in the Mind: The Fate of Dreams in Psychoanalysis and Modern Life

Presenter: Paul Lippmann | Discussant: Joshua Levy Discussant: William Robinson
presented by Toronto Psychoanalytic Society

Date: Saturday, May 11, 2013, 9 am to 4 pm

Are we turning into machines in this "post-human" era?

In this talk, Dr. Lippmann will explore one aspect of this question by thinking about the changing place of dreams both in psychoanalysis and

in the culture at large. Within the culture of psychoanalysis, there seems to be less interest in the dream as the best route to the unconscious and more interest in such social themes as attachment, relationship, and the therapeutic situation. In the general culture, ancient interest in dreams and the inner world of soul and psyche has been replaced by a world in thrall of the external screen and the power of the machine.

What are the implications of these changes for our personal and professional lives?

The title comes from a play on "canary in the mine" in which a growing disinterest in the actual, natural world of dreams may be a sign of a poisonous atmosphere in the culture.

Meanwhile, like a miracle, we still dream.
