Good and Bad: Love and Intimacy From Plato to Melanie Klein.

Good and Bad: Love and Intimacy From Plato to Melanie Klein. Am J Psychoanal. 2018 Apr 11;: Authors: Stromberg D Abstract Melanie Klein's theories on love outline a complex system of relations-an oscillating dynamic of psychical and emotional tendencies following from both actual experience and fantasies produced by the mind. Her insights are often discussed and applied in psychoanalytical contexts, but the philosophical implications of her theory-especially in relation to Platonic thought-have rarely been discussed. In this article, I will attempt to address this gap by setting out some preliminary yet core considerations shared by both Plato and Klein. First, I will describe some structural parallels between Kleinian and Platonic thought, especially in dialectical terms. Second, I will outline Plato's covert influence on Freud as passing through the teachings of philosopher Franz Brentano. And last, I will discuss intimacy as a struggle between the forces of good and bad, creativity and destruction, and love and hate-suggesting that Klein's conception of love emerges as a moral exigency.

CONCLUSIONS: Using data representing over 99% of U.S. population, we found that incidence rates of distant-stage prostate cancer significantly increased during 2010-2014 among men in certain ages, in white, and with non-Hispanic ethnicity. PMID: 29678312 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSION: CRC incidence increased with neighborhood disadvantage and racial disparities diminished with mounting disadvantage. Our results suggest additional dimensions to racial disparities in CRC outside of neighborhood disadvantage that warrants further research. PMID: 29678311 [PubMed - in process]

Conclusion: Our results suggest that the concentration of serum calcium is higher in patients with more severe artery stenosis lesions and that the phosphatidylinositol signaling system is a key biological pathway involved in this process.Cell Physiol Biochem 2018;46:1189 –1197

Conclusion: Rat hepatocytes with their intermediate rate of oxygen consumption also possess an intermediate CO2 permeability. From pairs of data for five types of cells/organelles, we find an excellent positive linear correlation between PCO2 and metabolic rate, suggesting an adaptation of PCO2 to the rate of O2 consumption.Cell Physiol Biochem 2018;46:1198 –1208
