Freud's Last Session
Book a visit and step into the office for a presentation of Mark St. Germain's Freud's Last Session, a battle of wits and of reason as two intellectual rivals discuss the nature of sex, the mind, and the soul.
On the eve of the beginning of World War II, a young academic named C. S. Lewis is invited to the home of aging psychotherapeutic titan Sigmund Freud, bringing about a clash of ideology, a careful chess game of competing ideas, even as the world outside gears up to turn the conflict nuclear.
The show will be presented as a live radio play and is being produced in association with Western Michigan University's Department of Comparative Religion and Office of Health Promotion and Education, with faculty from each providing a structured discussion on the covered topics following the performance. This collaboration is pursued as an educational opportunity for both students on campus and community members to grapple with the complicated role played by spirituality and reason in the field of psychoanalysis and mental health in a structured, mediated format.
