Anthropology and Psychoanalysis: An Encounter through Culture

By Suzette Heald; Ariane Deluz | Go to book overview
Save to active project


This book is based on a colloquium entitled, Culture, Psychanalyse, Interprétation held in Paris in July 1991 at the Collège de France. It was organised by Ariane Deluz and Suzette Heald and hosted by the Laboratoire d’Anthropologie Sociale. One of the inspirations for the colloquium was the cataloguing of the works and papers of George Devereux (1908-1985) at the Laboratoire by Ariane Deluz and Rupert Hasterok and it formed, as Deluz put it in her opening address, a ‘reburial’, a fitting celebration of his life and work and a laying to rest of his ghost. Our thanks go to Françoise Héritier-Augé for her hospitality at the Laboratoire and to the administrative staff, particularly Marcel Skrobek and Helene Monot, for their help.

We would also like to thank members of the colloquium whose contributions in the form of papers, comments and remarks during discussion are not fully represented in this volume: Patrice Bidou, Elizabeth Copet-Rougier, Vincent Crapanzano, Rupert Hasterok, Paul Jorion, Ben Kilborne, Adam Kuper, Mihaly Sarkany, Simone Valantin, Margarita Xanthakou and Andras Zempleni. Our most heartfelt thanks go to Pierre-Yves Jacopin for acting as scribe during the colloquium, for his summarising comments and for his important inputs into the discussions that went into the introduction.

The editors also acknowledge their gratitude to the following bodies for their financial assistance: Le Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, la Mission Interministérielle Recherche Expérimentation, la Maison des Sciences de l’Homme, the Economic and Social Science Research Council and the Nuffield Foundation of Great Britain. In addition, we thank the following for giving their permission for us to reproduce copyright material: the Musée Barbier-Müller in Geneva for allowing us to make drawings of the statues nos 1007-1 and 1007-16 from their collection and to Doune Cesari-Tissot for making the drawings reproduced in Chapter 3; Oceania Publications for their permission to reproduce the quoted text in Chapter 11 and to Heinemann International for the text quoted in Chapter 12.
