Working across contemporary histories of film and screenwriting, and US screenwriting manuals from the 1910s and 1920s, this volume breaks new ground in thinking about the nature of scripting, and how screenwriting took shape as a particular kind of practice. It focuses on key topics such as the notion of the script as blueprint, the emergence of the screenplay and the politics of writing for the screen. Bringing an accessible academic approach to practitioner-oriented discussions of craft, the book provides a new perspective on debates to do with auteurism, funding processes, digital technology and the future of scripting. Focusing primarily on screenwriting in the US, this work builds on a wide range of writings by filmmakers and screenwriters and the work of different critics and theorists who have theorised the script, including Sergei Eisenstein, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Janet Staiger and Dudley Nichols.

Blut, Treibstoff, Lebensprinzip - in seinem furiosen Buch erzählt Bestsellerautor James Gleick, wie die Information zum Kernstück unserer heutigen Zivilisation wurde. Beginnend bei den Wörtern, den "sprechenden" Trommeln in Afrika, über das Morsealphabet und bis hin zur Internetrevolution beleuchtet er, wie die Übermittlung von Informationen die Gesellschaften prägten und veränderten. Gleick erläutert die Theorien, die sich mit dem Codieren und Decodieren, der Übermittlung von Inhalten und dem Verbreiten der Myriaden von Botschaften beschäftigen. Er stellt die bekannten und unbekannten Pioniere der Informationsgesellschaft vor: Claude Shannon, Norbert Wiener, Ada Byron, Alan Turing und andere. Er bietet dem Leser neue Einblicke in die Mechanismen des Informationsaustausches. So lernt dieser etwa die sich selbst replizierende Meme kennen, die "DNA" der Informationen. Sein Buch ermöglicht ein neues Verständnis von Musik, Quantenmechanik - und eine gänzlich neue Sicht auf die faszinierende Welt der Informationen.

The privileged link psychoanalysis has to spoken languages does not necessarily facilitate communication among analysts and psychotherapists of different mother tongues. The JEP European Journal of Psychoanalysis - which has been published since 1995 - seeks to overcome these linguistic barriers. It introduces the English reader to important European authors, as well as to authors of, for example, Latin American countries, whose paradigms are close to European "styles." Anyway the JEP European Journal of Psychoanalysis will publish not only translations, but also papers by English-speaking contributors whose works are close to European currents. The journal is not the official organ of any particular school. Material is chosen solely in terms of quality, originality and relevance to international debates in psychoanalytic and psychotherapeutic fields. Similarly, significant, hard-to-pigeonhole authors and works falling outside any particular trend are also presented. The JEP European Journal of Psychoanalysis presents debates and trends within psychoanalysis and other related fields (including philosophical, anthropological, literary and historical contributions). Psychoanalysis has practical, ethical, and theoretical implications relevant not only to clinical practice, but also to politics and social policy, philosophy, cultural studies and the social sciences. This is why JEP has included papers by many authors who work (exclusively or also) in fields other than psychoanalysis, as well as authors mainly involved in clinical practice such as N. Braunstein, H. Bresheet, C. Castoriadis, V. Crapanzano, J. Cremerius, J. Derrida, F. Dolto, R. Girard, B. Grunberger, H. Kachele, O. Kernberg, B. Kilborne, J. Kristeva, P. Lacoue-Labarthe, J. Laplanche, S. Leclaire, J.-F. Lyotard, R. Major, I. Matte Blanco, J.-L. Nancy, D. Nobus, G. Obeyesekere, M. Perniola, P. Roazen, R. Rorty, E. Roudinesco, J. Searle, P. Valesio, F. Varela, G. Vattimo, J.-P. Vernant, Paul L. Wachtel, Y. H. Yerushalmi, S. i ek, etc. The journal provides an international forum for the exploration of the frontiers of psychoanalytic inquiry, giving voice to diverse perspectives, research, and clinical practice which link and transform the many partial understandings."

The Psychology of Screenwriting is more than an interesting book on the theory and practice of screenwriting. It is also a philosophical analysis of predetermination and freewill in the context of writing and human life in our mediated world of technology. Drawing on humanism, existentialism, Buddhism, postmodernism and transhumanism, and diverse thinkers from Meister Eckhart to Friedrich Nietzsche, Theodor Adorno, Jacques Derrida, Jean Baudrillard and Gilles Deleuze, The Psychology of Screenwriting will be of use to screenwriters, film students, philosophers and all those interested in contemporary theory. This book combines in-depth critical and cultural analysis with an elaboration on practice in an innovative fashion. It explores how people, such as those in the Dogme 95 movement, have tried to overcome traditional screenwriting, looking in detail at the psychology of writing and the practicalities of how to write well for the screen. This is the first book to include high-theory with screenwriting practice whilst incorporating the Enneagram for character development. Numerous filmmakers and writers, including David Lynch, Jim Jarmusch, David Cronenberg, Pedro AlmodÃ3var, Darren Aronofsky, Sally Potter and Charlie Kaufman are explored. The Psychology of Screenwriting is invaluable for those who want to delve deeper into writing for the screen.
