Freuds widerständiges Erbe.
Grenzgänge innerhalb und außerhalb
anlässlich des 70sten Geburtstags
von Bernd Nitzschke
issue is a Festschrift celebrating the 70th birthday of Bernd
Nitzschke, one among Freud’s oppositional heirs. Freud himself
was, however, a rebel with revolutionary theories about sexuality.
In 1998, I first saw Nitzschke’s name in Die Zeit citing Freud (1911) on Paul Schreber: “The delusional formations, which
we take to be the pathological product, are in reality an attempt
at recovery, a process of reconstruction” (p. 71, Freud’s
italics). I wrote to him, we met in 1998, became friends, and
collaborated on a number of psychoanalytic projects. This review
is my tribute to Bernd’s lifetime achievement as a psychoanalyst
and prolific historian of psychoanalysis.
