Censored and ultimately banned by the Freud Institute in Vienna, this lecture was eventually delivered by Edward Said at the Freud Museum in London. In it, he drew on sources from literature, archaeology, and social theory to examine the profound significance that Moses and Monotheism, Sigmund Freud’s last major work, could have had on contemporary politics in the Middle E ...more

"فرويد وغير الاوروبي" هي محاضرة لإدوارد سعيد، وغير الاوروبي ذو معنيين حسب الفترة : وقت فرويد، وما بعد 1939. إدوارد سعيد وفي لمنهجه في الدراسات ما بعد الكولونيالية، ولقارئه أن يلاحظ خاصة في البداية تكرارا لأمثلة عزيزة عليه مثل جوزف كونراد وفرانز فانون.

يحلل إدوارد سعيد الأعمال الأخيرة لفرويد وخاصة "موسى والتوحيد"، ويقيم التشابه بينه وبين الأعمال الأخيرة لبيتهوفن من حيث المنحى الفكري : الإنتاج هو لذات المنتج. النتيجة لفرويد هو أن كتابه هو أقل كتبه "موضوعية"، ومليء بالتجاذبات حول الهوية اليهودية. ه
A bit of an intellectual masturbation: he's all over the place, as befits Said's sprawling knowledge. He does tie it together, but doing so relies on a vague and philosophical tone throughout. It helps to have read some of his other work to understand what he is saying. The knowing irony of Said invoking Freud and Beethoven's late style, in which pieces were crafted more for themselves than the public, is that Said appears to be doing exactly the same thing here (in his last book). The entire sp ...more

An interesting short essay and response. The essay is a discussion about and response to a reading of Freud's Moses and monteism, itself a fragmenatry and unresolved work written in the last years of Freud life on the question of Jewish identity.

Said defends Freud against charges of eurocentrism because Freud only talks about Jews and European civilisation in opposition to primitivism. Freud did not apply his insights to other civilisations but his core ideas offer the tools to do so.

Said extend
This is actually a very short book, but very informative. Said ties together Freud's historical impasses with how they influenced the development of his theory of psychoanalysis. The book spends a good deal of time analyzing Freud's difficulty in coalescing Jewish religious narratives with his own theories. Said highlights how the rise of fascism impacted Freud--from exile to depression. The book also demonstrates how Freud struggled to mediate his secular views of the world with the regrowth of ...more

All the stuff I think about wrapped into one frequently brilliant lecture.
في كتاب إدوارد سعيد عن " فرويد وغير الأوربيين" نجد رسالة فكرية موجهة للقارئ الغربي الذي تربطه جذور ثقافية مع اليهود وفرويد تهدف إلى إلقاء الضوء على أشكال سحق الهوية التي تمارسها إسرائيل على شعب فلسطين ،..... كم أن هناك إشارات كثيرة إلى تردد فرويد وتناقضاته وتكراراته الوسواسية ،وعدم اهتمامه بحسم تحليلاته...
