Anthony Kauders took his first degree (AB) at Hamilton College in upstate New York. He then moved to England, where he studied International History at the London School of Economics (MA) and Modern History at Oxford (D.Phil.). Anthony is the author and co-editor of several volumes (see further information) that deal with German and German-Jewish history, as well as the history of psychology. His most recent book (Der Freud-Komplex) examined the reception of psychoanalysis in Germany. Anthony is currently researching the way in which scholars (but also the wider public) conceived of hypnosis, crowd psychology, psychotherapy, and social psychology. He was guest editor of two special issues of Hypnose-ZHH that focused on hypnosis and crime (2015) and hypnosis in the Third Reich (2016).

 

 

Anthony’s research to date has focused on six distinct areas: antisemitism, coming to terms with the past, Jewish historiography, Jewish life in post-1945 Germany, the reception of psychoanalysis, and the history of hypnosis. German Politics and the Jews (1996) was the first systematic analysis of political reactions to Jew-hatred in the Weimar Republic. Democratization and the Jews (2004) returned to the theme of antisemitism, but now examined the extent to which West Germans confronted the Holocaust and, in so doing, established a causal connection between democratization on the one hand and the fight against anti-Jewish prejudice on the other. It was the first study to analyze democratization as the recognition of minority rights in the aftermath of genocide. Following the publication of Democratization and the Jews and two co-edited volumes (a reader on Jewish historiography and a survey on Jewish history, both of which are used as introductory texts at German universities), Anthony wrote Unmögliche Heimat (Impossible Homeland, 2007), the first comprehensive history of West Germany’s Jewish community. Der Freud-Komplex (The Freud Complex, 2014), Anthony’s fourth monograph, addressed German reactions to Freudian psychoanalysis in the 20th century. More specifically, it set out to trace these reactions as wider indicators of popular conceptions of selfhood, early childhood education, sexuality, and the unconscious. Currently, Anthony is researching the history of hypnosis as it pertains to questions of crime, free will, sociocognitive theory, and crowd psychology.
