  • Violent Reverberationsby Vigdis Broch-Due; Bjørn Enge Bertelsen

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 95.90

By doing so, we critically engage the far too often individuating aspects of trauma, as well as the assumption of a universal somatic that is globally applicable to contexts... more...

  • Interdisciplinary Handbook of Trauma and Cultureby Yochai Ataria; David Gurevitz; Haviva Pedaya; Yuval Neria

    Springer International Publishing 2016; US$ 95.90

    This lofty volume analyzes a circular cultural relationship: not only how trauma is reflected in cultural processes and products, but also how trauma itself acts as a critical shaper of literature, the visual and performing arts, architecture, and religion and mythmaking. The political power of trauma is seen through US, Israeli, and Japanese art... more...

  • Psychoseby Encyclopaedia Universalis

    Primento Digital Publishing 2016; US$ 4.99

    C'est à Ernst von Feuchtersleben que l'on attribue la paternité, en 1845, du terme de psychose au sens très global de « maladie de l'esprit » (Seelenkrankheit), alors que celui de névrose désignait « toutes ces affections étranges du sentiment ou du mouvement qui sont sans fièvre » (William Cullen, 1776), et dont certaines seulement se traduisaient... more...
