Laurence A. Rickels
Laurence A. Rickels moved to the Coast in 1981 upon completing his graduate training in German philology at Princeton University. While in California he earned a psychotherapy license. He has published numerous studies of the phenomenon he calls "unmourning", a term that became the title of his trilogy: "Aberrations of Mourning", "The Case of California", and "Nazi Psychoanalysis". His most recent publication (in German translation) is "Geprüfte Seelen" (Passagen 2012).
