Identity: Youth and Crisis

Availability: Ready to download

Identity, Erikson writes, is an unfathomable as it is all-pervasive. It deals with a process that is located both in the core of the individual and in the core of the communal culture. As the culture changes, new kinds of identity questions arise—Erikson comments, for example, on issues of social protest and changing gender roles that were particular to the 1960s. Represent Identity, Erikson writes, is an unfathomable as it is all-pervasive. It deals with a process that is located both in the core of the individual and in the core of the communal culture. As the culture changes, new kinds of identity questions arise—Erikson comments, for example, on issues of social protest and changing gender roles that were particular to the 1960s. Representing two decades of groundbreaking work, the essays are not so much a systematic formulation of theory as an evolving report that is both clinical and theoretical. The subjects range from "creative confusion" in two famous lives—the dramatist George Bernard Shaw and the philosopher William James—to the connection between individual struggles and social order. "Race and the Wider Identity" and the controversial "Womanhood and the Inner Space" are included in the collection.

    ‎دوستانِ گرانقدر، همانطور که میدانید، مسئلهٔ "شخصیت" و "هویّت" یکی از مسائلِ مهم و اساسی در علم روانشناسی و روانکاوی میباشد که زنده یاد «اریک اریکسون» در این زمینه زحماتِ بسیار زیادی کشید که یادِ او همیشه گرامی باد ‎عزیزانم، «اریکسون» در این کتابِ ارزشمند، از بحران های شخصیتی سخن گفته است، امّا آنطور که باید و شاید همچون اندیشمندِ گرانقدر «فروید» به ریشه یابی بحران ها نپرداخته است... در جامعهٔ صنعتیِ امروزه، انسانها به نوعی به اشياء تبدیل شده اند.. حال این سؤال ایجاد میشود که اشياء شخصیت دارند و ‎دوستانِ گرانقدر، همانطور که میدانید، مسئلهٔ "شخصیت" و "هویّت" یکی از مسائلِ مهم و اساسی در علم روانشناسی و روانکاوی میباشد که زنده یاد «اریک اریکسون» در این زمینه زحماتِ بسیار زیادی کشید که یادِ او همیشه گرامی باد ‎عزیزانم، «اریکسون» در این کتابِ ارزشمند، از بحران های شخصیتی سخن گفته است، امّا آنطور که باید و شاید همچون اندیشمندِ گرانقدر «فروید» به ریشه یابی بحران ها نپرداخته است... در جامعهٔ صنعتیِ امروزه، انسانها به نوعی به اشياء تبدیل شده اند.. حال این سؤال ایجاد میشود که اشياء شخصیت دارند و یا شخصیت ندارند؟!؟ آیا اتومبیل ساختِ فلان کارخانه که محصول امسال است، با اتومبیلِ ساختِ همان کارخانه که محصولِ سالها پیش است، تفاوتی ندارد؟؟ اشياء میتوانند همسان و یا متفاوت باشند.. امّا باید در نظر داشته باشیم که زمانی که ما از شخصیت سخن میگوییم، از کیفیتی سخن میگوییم که مربوط به انسان است، و نه مربوط به اشياء ‎امروزه انگیزهٔ عمدهٔ "شخصیت کشی" و یا "شخصیت زدایی" فرصت طلبی هایِ مربوط به پیشرفت و ترقی در جامعهٔ صنعتی است.. زیرا زندگی در جامعه تمایل به آن دارد که انسان خودش را به عنوانِ یک "چیز" و یا یک "شئ" تجربه کند، احساسِ شخصیت به صورتِ پدیدهٔ نادری در می آید... امّا مسئله زمانی خطرناک و بغرنج میشود که از وجودِ یک شخصیتِ ناآگاه نیز، نباید غافل باشیم ‎در حالی که برخی از مردم در جامعهٔ امروز آگاهانه خود را به "چیزها" و "اشياء" تبدیل کرده اند، امّا ناخودآگاه شخصیتِ خویش را هنوز گُم نکرده اند... این امر به آن دلیل است که هنوز فراگردهایِ اجتماعی نتوانسته اند انسان ها را کاملاً تبدیل به "چیز" و "شئ" نمایند ‎دوستانِ عزیزم، به طورِ کلی دو نوع شخصیت برای انسانها میتوان تعریف کرد... یکی انسانهایی که «بودن» زندگی آنها را تشکیل میدهد و دیگری انسانهایی که «داشتن» زندگی آنها را تشکیل میدهد... انسانی که «داشتن» زندگی وی را تشکیل میدهد، وجودش را به صورتِ یک «خود» تجربه میکند و احساسِ شخصیتش، احساسِ «خود شخصیتی» میباشد، طبیعتاً میخواهد وجودش را و همچنین تن و حافظه و مال و املاک و عقاید و عواطفش را مصون نگاه دارد... چنین انسانی بطور مداوم در حالتِ دفاع در مقابلِ هرکس و یا هر نوع تجربه ای است که بخواهد دوام و صلابتِ هستیِ مومیائی شدهٔ او را به خطر اندازد ‎و امّا انسانی که «بودن» زندگیِ وی را تشکیل میدهد، خود را در معرضِ آسیب دیدگیِ شخصیتی قرار میدهد. هیچ چیز متعلق به او نیست، جز اینکه او هست، زیراکه زنده است... امّا از لحظه ای که او احساسِ فعال بودن و تمرکزِ خود را از دست میدهد، در خطر این است که نه چیزی داشته باشد و نه کسی را برایِ خویش داشته باشد... امّا این شخص، این خطرِ بزرگ را با آمادگی داشتن و بیداری و زنده بودنِ دائمی خویش و افکارِ خویش، میتواند دفع کند ---------------------------------------------- ‎دوستانِ خردگرا، این موضوع، بسیار پیچیده است، لذا در ریویوهایی که در آینده در موردِ این مبحث مینویسم، سعی میکنم ساده تر و روان تر در موردِ «شخصیت» و «هویّت» توضیح دهم ‎امیدوارم این ریویو با آنکه سخت فهم بود، امّا در حدّ خودش برایتان مفید بوده باشه ‎«پیروز باشید و ایرانی»

    I really enjoyed this book. It was the first book by Erik Erikson that I have read and I was very impressed. It was written in the US in the sixties and since it engages with what was going on at the times (youth alienation, consumption capitalism, racial issues, etc), it can seem a little old fashioned. However, I think there is a lot of wisdom in this book. Erikson explores the many dimensions of the identity issue in a deep and fascinating way. It is far from being a standard piece of psychoa I really enjoyed this book. It was the first book by Erik Erikson that I have read and I was very impressed.

However, I think there is a lot of wisdom in this book. Erikson explores the many dimensions of the identity issue in a deep and fascinating way. It is far from being a standard piece of psychoanalytic writing insofar as Erikson is very concerned with social, cultural and historical issues, indeed, one of the things I think he is trying to do is to link psychoanalytical insights with issues beyond the individual and the nuclear family. Having said that, there are also some interesting perspectives on psychoanalysis - I found his view on childhood and the different stages of childhood (including versions of the traditional Freudian libidinal stages) very interesting and although as a man I hesitate to say it, I thought his post-Freudian essay on Womanhood and the Inner Space was very powerful. So overall I am really glad I read this book and will definitely read some more Erikson in due course to see how his other stuff compares.

    Excellent book about the development of an identity. Erikson lays out the crux of his argument which would later develop how we think about identity in psychology. Amazing book.

    The multiple insights about identity formation are quite interesting. He expertly brings out the fluid nature of identity formation.

    Erikson, and his theories, continue to be ubiquitous in even the most disconnected schools of psychology (e.g. psychodynamic thought and social-cognitive work). This book, in particular, inspired my master’s thesis (to emphasize the impact on me as a reader) and delves into the rich and fascinating field of adolescence and how we develop during the transition to adulthood.

    I should find the English translation to read at some point in my life. The Chinese one is horribly translated.

    Love the concept of a defining crisis in each psychosocial stage. A great read.
