In Cold War Freud Dagmar Herzog uncovers the astonishing array of concepts of human selfhood which circulated across the globe in the aftermath of World War II. Against the backdrop of Nazism and the Holocaust, the sexual revolution, feminism, gay rights, and anticolonial and antiwar activism, she charts the heated battles which raged over Freud's legacy. From the postwar US to Europe and Latin America, she reveals how competing theories of desire, anxiety, aggression, guilt, trauma and pleasure emerged and were then transformed to serve both conservative and subversive ends in a fundamental rethinking of the very nature of the human self and its motivations. Her findings shed new light on psychoanalysis' enduring contribution to the enigma of the relationship between nature and culture, and the ways in which social contexts enter into and shape the innermost recesses of individual psyches.
In the new digital era, using computers to analyze the masses of textual primary material now available to researchers is an imperative rather than an interesting topic. Yet computer content analysis is a complex method, making unique theoretical, methodological, and practical demands upon the researcher. This volume provides, from scholars in a variety of disciplines, examples of solutions to tricky problems in the analysis of textual material via computer, showing researchers the manners in which respected scholars have overcome the complexities and theoretical concerns which arise in teaching computers to analyze textual material.
