Freud was fascinated by the ancient world, and its myths have been a source of continuing interest and inspiration to psychoanalysts. This conference, the fourth in the Institute’s series of conferences on the relations between psychoanalysis and different fields of academic study, will explore the continuing connections between classical philosophy and culture and psychoanalytic inquiry and practice. Its speakers are distinguished classical scholars, philosophers, and psychoanalysts. This conference aims to bring different ways of thinking about life into a dialogue that can enrich both disciplines.

Contributors: David Bell, David Black, Lesley Caldwell, Armand D’Angour, Sebastian Gardner, Edith Hall, Lisa Miller, Ellen Olliensis, Daniel Orrells, Margaret Rustin, Michael Rustin, Juliet Stevenson, Neil Vickers, Margot Waddell.
