Abstract

For the past years, psychoanalysis in German academia has been in constant decline, leading to a situation where psychoanalytic thinking is virtually non-existent in most curricula. To address this gap in academic teaching at the Julius-Maximilians-University Wuerzburg, the Psychoanalyticum has been established to create a platform for a trans-disciplinary discourse about psychoanalysis, its theory, practise, tradition, and related subjects. In the present article, we introduce this novel model of academic teaching, together with its history, conceptual framework, and future orientation.
