Volume 3: Spring 2010

Editors’ Intro

“The secret of the psychoanalytic method is the very engagement of a discourse wherein the fixity and certainty of any proferred epistemic configuration are dislodged… what psychoanalysis offers, the subject is thus its discourse as Otherwise.”

Barratt, B. (1993) Psychoanalysis and the Postmodern Impulse: Knowing and Being Since Freud’s Psychology. Johns Hopkins University Press: Baltimore (p. 42).

    hello all,

    i want to recommend an amazing non-fiction book that has become a new york times bestseller. that being said, it is still amazing. the title is ” the immortal life of henrietta lacks”. i feel that it has been a life changing experience to learn about the nightmare experience scientists at johns hopkins, inflicted on the lacks family from the early 1950’s, thru the 1970’s and in many ways, to this day.

    without giving it away, this is an investigative, very powerful mystery, which touches, science, science fiction, psychoanalysis, multi century racism, greed, and criminality. the author, rebecca skloot ()00has a facebook page),eals with her uncovering journey of the HELA cells which never stopped reproducing in the lab, ( to this day they are reproducing still). like an investingative reporter, she spewnd ten years, uncovering and then beautifully writing the story of this families abuse by the medical industry, in the most beautiful and powerful way. this book is a must read for anyone who cares about social justice, science, and the mystery of life.

    best to all,

    paula shatsky
