About the event

The Immortal Wolf Man: an Enigma Reconsidered

In this seminar we will have an encounter with the “Wolf Man” Sergei Pankejeff, returning once again to an analysis that not only inspired one of Freud’s greatest case studies but which also produced a robust secondary literature of commentary and critique. Where did Freud miss the mark? What does this case tell us about the potential hazards of diagnosis and the fraught relationship between analytic theory and technique? Accompanied by the Wolf Man and his inexhaustible mystery, we will take up these and other essential questions about the direction of the treatment.
