A Contemporary View of the Death Drive, Intellect or Instinct: Must We Choose?


The Oscar Sternbach Memorial Award is presented to Otto F. Kernberg, MD, former president of the International Psychoanalytical Association. His lecture, The Death Drive: A Contemporary View of the Controversy, is a critical examination of Freuds theory of the death drive based on psychoanalytic explorations of aggressive motivation in cases of both severe and borderline character pathology. He questions the assumption of an innate self-destructive drive but affirms the inborn nature of aggressive affects and the clinical relevance of Freuds concept. Cosponsored by the National Psychological Association for Psychoanalysis and the Department of Social Sciences at The New School.
