Academy for the Study of the Psychoanalytic Arts

Since its beginnings in the early '80's, the Michigan Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology (MSPP), the Michigan chapter of Division 39, has provided a philosophical and professional home for those in Michigan interested in psychoanalytic psychology. In the mid '90's, the MSPP has provided the opportunity through the formation of a new section to begin to develop an alternate conceptual and philosophical home for psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy, one suggested in the observation made in 1927 that "Psychoanalysis falls under the head of psychology; not of medical psychology in the old sense, nor of psychology of morbid processes, but simply of psychology." (italics added) (Freud, 1927).

The Academy for the Study of the Psychoanalytic Arts was founded as a section of the Michigan Society for Psychoanalytic Psychology (MSPP) in January of 1995. A group of five members of the MSPP formed this new section in response to the industrialization and commercialization of the health care professions. The Academy 's organizing interest and defining project is to be found in the reconsideration, reexamination, and rethinking of the philosophical-theoretical underpinnings of psychoanalysis within a contextual metaphor other than that of health care and from within a psychological understanding of the human condition more closely allied with philosophy, the humanities, and the arts than with biology and medicine.

Mission Statement

The Academy's mission is to advance the study of psychoanalytic epistemology, theory, practice, ethics and education within a psychological framework consisting of philosophy, the arts and the anthropic sciences as opposed to biology, medicine and the natural sciences.

They propose to do this through:

  • the re-thinking of psychoanalysis as a creative intellectual discipline dedicated to the understanding of the psyche;
  • the re-thinking of psychoanalytic practice as consisting of a collaborative inquiry to further self-understanding rather than the "treatment" of disease, disorder or deficiency;
  • the development of educational programs for the study of the many modern and postmodern versions and visions of psychoanalysis that proceed from contextual metaphors such as narrative story, semiotics and psychic theatre;
  • the articulation and advancement of an ethic and principles consistent with this psychological framework;
  • the presentation of these ideas to the academic, professional and lay communities.
