Welcome to Clio’s Psyche and the Psychohistory Forum

Our mission is to enlarge and disseminate the related paradigms of applied psychoanalysis, political psychology, psychobiography, and psychological history. We seek to do this in non-technical language.

Our goal is always to stimulate psychohistorical thought, publications, research, and teaching. Some specific objectives are as follows:

  • To encourage the general public to think psychohistorically
  • To disseminate psychohistorical knowledge
  • To communicate with Psychohistory Forum members and Clio’s Psyche subscribers
  • To assist the networking of colleagues, especially in the Forum research groups
  • To grow the psychohistorical community and the larger group of people interested in what we do
  • To help clinicians focus on history and current events
  • To assist academics in all disciplines — history, literature, political science, psychology, sociology, anthropology — to utilize the insights and tools of psychoanalysis, psychobiography, and psychology
  • To foster psychohistorical debate, discussion, listening, publication, research, and thought
  • To help transmit the knowledge of an older generation of psychohistorians to those just entering the field
  • To research and publish the history of our field, honoring the work of those who have built it
  • To make available online obituaries of those who die, memorializing their work

In conclusion, we welcome others joining with us to achieve the goals articulated in this mission statement.
