A Website for Applied Psychoanalysis

At a time when the Doomsday Clock stands at 90 seconds to Midnight, meaning that our species faces imminent extinction from global warming, environmental catastrophe or a nuclear war developing from the Russian invasion of Ukraine, this website is about how and why we have come to this pass. It is my belief that without the insights of psychoanalysis, both on the individual and on the collective level,  we can neither answer these questions nor save ourselves from an unprecedented catastrophe. There have been a series of books entitled The End of the World (see here). What has become of our species and of our civilization — and why?

Applied psychoanalysis is a discipline for studying human creation, including art, science, music, architecture, films, and urban civilization, and human destruction, including war, genocide, environmental pollution, and the annihilation of other species.

This website is based on the interdisciplinary research fields of psychohistory, psychobiography, political psychology, psychogeography, and psychoanthropology, among others. Here you will find my books, articles, and blogs on the psychoanalytic interpretation of history, politics, geography, literature, music and other aspects of human behavior and endeavor.

From time to time you will find new pages here about subjects such as the tragic mass murders in Norway and France, the Scottish referendum, U.S.-Israeli relations, Iran’s nuclear ambitions, the Arab-Israeli conflict, or the former U.S. President Donald Trump and his followers.

Any comments or suggestions from you will be appreciated.

Thank you for visiting my website.
