 L.L. Bernard: An Introduction to Social Psychology: Chapter 27: Primary and Derivative Attitudes and Ideals   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The main distinction between an ideal and a primary emotional attitude lies in the greater degree of intellectualization of the former, which is in reality a specialized subdivision of the latter.
Religion has been increasingly intellectualized until abstract or derivative ideals of social welfare and public duty have come to supplement, and even to assume dominance and direction over, the more restrictive primary attitudes, especially of the more emotional sort, which formerly constituted its core.
This means that the members of such institutions must be taught to think in terms of abstract or derivative adjustments, made on the basis of scientific ideals of collective behavior, instead of on the basis of traditions and beliefs coming down unmodified from the primary group life and emotional behavior of primitive times.

 ShrinkWrapped: Intellectualization, Free Speech, & Unintended Consequences: Part III
John Leo has an article in the US News and World Report titled "Double-standard trouble" in which he describes the danger of the intellectual who can blind himself to his own unconscious need for power and control.
I spend some of my time brooding about people who seem addicted to double standards--those who take an allegedly principled stand on a Monday, then switch firmly to the opposite principle on Tuesday if it is to their advantage.
The Constitution is difficult to amend for a reason and the unintended consequences of creative interpretation of the Constitution are quite frightening.

 Does Psychoanalysis Intellectualize the Emotions?
To see how this is so, it suffices to observe what happens in the communication of an emotion in everyday life: there is a moment which always goes beyond a mere spontaneous feeling and requires a clarification, not only to oneself, but to others.
By calling a problem of emotional expression a repression, psychoanalysis displaces the question of emotions from an immediate expression of the self to a revelation of what is systematically ‘other’ in the recognition of the self: the question of desire and passion.
Neither art nor psychiatry, psychoanalysis opens up the reality of suffering and passion, in the sense that their repression would find a place to be listened to, constructed, and read — and not simply reduced to an intellectualization or sublimation of the individual's interior feelings of pain and emotion.

 Sublimation (psychology) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In Freud's classic theory, erotic energy is only allowed limited expression due to repression, and much of the remainder of a given group's erotic energy is used to develop its culture and civilization.
Freud considered this defense mechanism the most productive compared to the others that he identified (ie., repression, displacement, denial, reaction formation, intellectualization and projection).
Sublimation is the process of transforming libido into "social useful" achievements, mainly art.

 Is disenchantment the end of religion? - Christopher L. Walton
Rationalization and intellectualization have profound consequences not only for the economic and political organization of modern societies, but for the psychological and spiritual organization of the "modern self" as well.
Religious people who try to serve the ethic of brotherliness in the various spheres of their lives introduce a form of rationality that is somewhat hostile to the rationalized and intellectualized methods of the modern disciplines.
The institutional and intellectual traditions of the rationalized religions seem most vitally relevant to a disenchanted world in their capacity to link the personal quest for meaning and cosmic order to a discipline that serves the religious ethic of brotherliness.

 thou answerest them only with spring: , page 1   (Site not responding. Last check: )
One of the clearest expressions of this theme can be found in Cummings' poem [o sweet spontaneous], in which he attacks various intellectuals for failing, from his perspective, to properly appreciate the earth.
But despite all the attempts of philosophers, scientists, and theologians to make intellectual sense of the earth via all their prodding, poking, and squeezing, the earth "answerest/them only with/spring"-or, in other words, despite all of their intellectualizations, the only answer the earth gives the intellectuals is the experience itself.
It's better, the poem argues, "wholly to be a fool/while spring is in the world" (l.5-6), or, in other words, to not think at all while the experience of spring is out there waiting to be had.

 Does Psychoanalysis Intellectualize the Emotions?
Contrary to what is habitually presumed, psychoanalysis is not the intellectualization of one's life or emotions, but the one contemporary discourse that does not ‘de-realize’ passion and suffering into the mere expression of emotions or feelings of pain.
For this reason, psychoanalysis is not a place you go to think about or intellectualize your emotions, but to articulate the ignorance of a passion: an emotion that simultaneously asserts and denies its own comprehension.
It was psychoanalysis which reintroduced an interrogation of the passions into a medical discourse by taking seriously their irreality, not merely as the expression of a fiction or imaginary, but as a guide to a real repression in the life of the individual.

 IPT Journal - "Structured, Time-Limited, Mastery-Oriented Therapy Groups for Sexually Abused, Preadolescent ...
Berliner has developed a structured time-limited group format for these children aimed toward developing intellectual understanding and cognitive integration of reactions to the abuse which involves developing a cohesive relationship with peers who have also experienced abuse, development of protective behaviors to avoid future victimization, and improvement of self-esteem.
Their work has defined the typical coping mechanisms displayed by these children as ability to use intellectualization, cognitive relabeling, effective problem solving, ability to seek help and support from the environment, and capability for maintaining self esteem.
Certainly the group experience allowed opportunities for verbalization of more adequate intellectualization mechanisms for handling the abuse and cognitive relabeling was practiced in what appeared to be an effective fashion through chants, cheers and role play.

 Conclusion
Here, beyond the realm of physics, the three dimensional process of intellectualization and semantical expression (which are required for instruction) begin to fail us and detailed instruction becomes futile.
The process of intellectualization, is subject to the same pre-defined deterministic forces about which we are intellectualizing.
It is only a strenuous attempt to push the intellectualization process to the outer limits of the forces which bind it and thereby gain a glimpse of the true nature of our universe, the mechanics of reality, the critical limits of ‘mind’, and the distant road leading to true understanding, the road to ultimate Union.

 S&F Online - Public Sentiments
Before we can get to the intellectual task, though, we have to confront the fact that the film is an intensely disturbing chronicle of degradation, following four characters as they plummet toward their respective rock bottoms of drug addiction.
My profession - and intellectual endeavors more generally - has always set me apart from that, but the barrier is artificial in some ways and teaching a film like this disturbs the distinction between my present and my past.
To see it that way is an oversimplification, I tell them, seeking refuge in the lexicon of intellectual analysis; to drive the point home, I bolster my case with a nod to authority, quoting Aronofksy saying that to read an anti-drug message in the film is to stop at a "top level reading" (xv).

 Addiction and Its Mechanisms of Defense
In severe psychiatric illnesses such as schizophrenia there may be a weakness or failure of mental defense mechanisms which grievously impairs the capacity of the individual to cope with life by exposing him to the unbuffered and untamed force of inner and outer stimuli.
In the psychodynamic hierarchy of mental defense mechanisms denial and paranoid projection are regarded as psychotic defenses because their fundamental character involves a severe disruption of reality testing that causes the afflicted individual to lose touch with consensual reality and to dwell increasingly in a world and reality of his own.
For while psychotic denial may indeed protect the addicted individual from seeing the proverbial 'elephant in the living room,' he usually will be left with a certain smell and perhaps other reminders of the presence of the elephant that must somehow be accounted for and explained away in an agreeable manner, i.e.

Dex (Donal Logue) is an obese schlub, a poster boy for the Freudian defense mechanisms of rationalization and intellectualization who spouts Kierkegaard, Heidegger, and Lao-tzu, while explaining to his buddies how to score with the babes.
In another piece of irony, she mistakes his insecure fearfulness for gaming, and he is hoist by his own petard, or, in this case, intellectualization.
What makes Dex fascinating is the node where his childlike glee, shown in his horsing around with his dog and frolicking with his grade school students, meets his infantile fear of life, utilizing intellectualization to mask a total lack of ambition and fear of commitment.
