Reichian Psychology and the Concept of DOR (Dead Orgone)

Reichian Psychology and the Concept of DOR (Dead Orgone)

Ratings: (0)|Views: 471 |Likes:
Published by Ian Irvine (Hobson)
This essay looks at Wilhelm Reich's concept of Dead Orgone (DOR) from new perspectives. It argues that Reich moved beyond the scientific paradigm in articulating concepts like 'orgone', charcater armouring', and 'DOR' (dead orgone) but was unable to develop a methodology capable of affirming his key intuitive insights. The article would be of use to anyone interested in Freudian, Jungian, Reichian and, more geenrally, neo-psychoanalytic models of the psyche - particularly those interested in the more radical forms of psychoanalysis developed in the 20th century.
