The 2019 Taubman Lectures
These lectures explore the role of Jewish languages in Freud's writings and in the reception and translation of psychoanalysis. Were Hebrew and Yiddish translations a minor episode in the dispersion of psychoanalysis, or do they have a special place in this history, as the "lost originals" of Freud's German writings?
