  1. Ottessa Moshfegh, “My Year of Rest and Relaxation”

    Ottessa Moshfegh reads and discusses her novel, "My Year of Rest and Relaxation" at Politics and Prose on 7/25/18.

    The unnamed narrator of Moshfegh’s compelling and unsettling novel is a woman who has everything: looks, a brand-new degree from Columbia, a job at an art gallery, an Upper East Side apartment, and a substantial inheritance. But her fairy-tale existence feels cursed. In 2000, she decides to escape her life by taking enough drugs to sleep through it all for a year. Aside from the psychiatrist who writes the prescriptions, she sees only a college friend and a boyfriend. Her plan works for a while, then a new drug, Infermiterol, causes strange and frightening blackouts and the narrator must face what it is she really needs. As she did in Eileen, winner of the PEN/Hemingway Award for debut fiction, Moshfegh writes with both humor and an unflinching attention to parts of life we’d rather not see, but can’t look away from.

  4. 3(+1) Humiliations To The World View Of Humans - Sigmund Freud, Darwin and Copernicus

    Throughout history the world views of humans got destroyed several times : Copernicus, Darwin and Freud.

    twitter : https://twitter.com/DieStimmeYT

    Script : Hi ! My Name Is Jan, and today i want to talk about the 3 big humiliations to the world view of humans humanity witnessed. Credit where credit is due : this idea isn´t mine, it is one of Sigmund Freuds. Enjoy !

    First we have to look at the starting position : the medival christian worldview. The earth is the middle of the solar system and the middle of the universe. The human is made by god, we are the ruler of earth, the most important subject on the most important object. This zentrist and egoistical view gets destroyed the first time through astronomy. Copernicus discovered that the sun, not the earth was the middle of the solar system. But if you aren´t in the center, how can you be important ? Now the human is only part of a gigantic creation. But he is still the pinnacle of that. The likeness of god. More than an animal, the species which is commissioned by god to design the earth. But is that true ? Darwin and Wallace dispute that claim with the theory of evolution. The human is only an intelligent animal with a large brain – nothing less, nothing more. Not send directly by god. Not assigned to rule over planet earth. Just a better …

  9. TEDxObserver - Mark Solms

    Land ownership in South Africa: turning neuropsychoanalysis into wine.

    In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxObserver, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxObserver event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized. http://www.ted.com/tedx
