Last week’s AAPP annual meeting brought two new additions to the PSAGACITY online video site. The first was Professor John Russon’s lecture on phenomenological understanding of agency and the structure of intersubjectivity. Professor Russon is a Professor of Philosophy at the University of Guelph. This posting is the first for the annual Edwin R. Wallace Lecture in Psychiatry and Psychoanalysis; we hope to post more of these in the coming years.
Dr. Jennifer Hansen’s interview was also recorded and posted recently. Dr. Hansen is Professor of Philosophy and Associate Dean at Saint Lawrence University. Her video, one of many constituting the Philosophy of Psychiatry Oral History series on Psagacity, discusses her development as a young philosopher before discussing in some detail her ideas on women and depression, gender and psychopharmacology, and pragmatism and hope. She speaks in a very engaging and personal style; I’ve already encouraged several of our trainees to check out this video.
