By: Helena Harper

Who influences us in our lives? How do they influence us? Whom do we call an enemy? Whom do we call a friend? And why? Why do we have relationships at all? These are the questions Helena Harper eloquently asks in her collection of poems that examines the relationships in her own life.

Metaphysics

By: Oliver Herford

Poetry

Excerpt: WHY and Wherefore set out one day // To hunt for a wild Negation. // They agreed to meet at a cool retreat // On the Point of Interrogation. // But the night was dark and they missed their mark, // And, driven well-nigh to distraction, // They lost their ways in a murky maze // Of utter abstruse abstraction.

The History of the Psychoanalytic Movement

By: Sigmund Freud

If in what follows I bring any contribution to the history of the psychoanalytic movement nobody must be surprised at the subjective nature of this paper, nor at the role which falls to me therein. For psychoanalysis is my creation; for ten years I was the only one occupied with it, and all the annoyance which this new subject caused among my contemporaries has been hurled upon my head in the form of criticism. Even today, when I am no longer the only psychoanalyst, I fe...
