Personality and mental health
Is it true that we have an American national character? Is America old enough to have developed a distinctive personality? Can you predict the kind of mental breakdown that an American will have? Do we have a different kind of neurotic personality today that was present ten years ago? Who goes to the psychiatrist? Has the psychiatric couch now become a part of the American landscape? Are neuroses the result of a capitalist policy? Do we need more ritual in America to help the personality to develop? What are the characteristics of a mature personality? These are some of the questions that Max Lerner and five Brandeis students discuss during the program.
