Medard Boss

Medard Boss was a Swiss psychoanalytic psychiatrist who developed a form of psychotherapy known as Daseinsanalysis, which united the psychotherapeutic practice of psychoanalysis with the existential-phenomenological philosophy of friend and mentor Martin Heidegger. During his medical studies in Vienna, he initiated his psychoanalytic training by undergoing some psychoanalytic sessions with Sigmund Freud, an analysis he continued at length in Zurich with Swiss psychoanalyst Hans Behn Eschenburg. Upon his return to Zurich, he trained at Burghölzli Hospital under the supervision of the psychiatrist Eugen Bleuler, he went on to formal psychoanalytic training at the Berlin Psychoanalytic Institute where his supervisory analyst was Karen Horney. While at BPI he studied with Hanns Sachs, Otto Fenichel, Wilhelm Reich, Kurt Goldstein, he went to London, where he worked with Ernest Jones for six months at the National Hospital for Nervous Diseases. Back in Zurich he was invited by Carl Gustav Jung to join a workshop with other medical doctors to study analytical psychology, an experience that lasted nearly ten years and helped Boss to see that psychoanalysis need not be limited to Freudian interpretations.

It was during the 1930s that Boss became acquainted with Ludwig Binswanger, who introduced Boss to the works of philosopher Martin Heidegger. During World War II, while serving in the Swiss Army, Boss began studying Heidegger's Being and Time and, upon the conclusion of the war, Boss contacted Heidegger, initiating a 25-year mentoring friendship. Through his study with Heidegger, Boss came to believe that modern medicine and psychology, premised on Cartesian philosophy and Newtonian physics, made incorrect assumptions about human beings and what it means to be human, he addressed an existential foundation for medicine and psychology two classic texts: Psychoanalysis and Daseinsanalysis and Existential Foundations of Medicine and Psychology. Whereas Boss's older colleague Ludwig Binswanger, is recognized as the founder of the first systematic existential approach to psychiatry and psychopathology, Boss is regarded as having founded the first systematic approach to existential psychotherapy.

Other significant contributions Boss made to the literature in existential psychotherapy include The Meaning and Content of Sexual Perversions, The Analysis of Dreams, A Psychiatrist Discovers India. Boss saw dreams as coming from a person’s life as a whole, not from a separate “dream state”, he did not see the “unconscious” as a place where the denied impulses were kept, the way Freud presented it.

Charles Mill Lake

Charles Mill is a reservoir located in central Ohio near the junction of State Routes 430 and 603. Charles Mill Lake is a quiet and enjoyable place for boating, fishing, hunting, or hiking; the lake is located in both Richland County and Ashland County, with the dam located in Ashland County. This lake is located on the Black Fork of the Mohican River. Many local residents refer to Chales Mill Lake as Mifflin Lake due to its proximity to Mifflin, Ohio; the lake sees local use by nearby residents who fish or boat. The area around the lake experienced several incidents of violence between settlers and Native Americans during the War of 1812. An attack took place within a mile of the dam site following the forced removal of the Piqua Indians from their homes in Greentown; the Native Americans first attacked the home of the Frederick Zimmer family, killing Zimmer, his wife and daughter, their neighbor, Martin Ruffner. Several days a settler, James Copus, three militiamen were killed while defending Copus' home and family.

There is a historical marker in the day use area of the lake that recounts the stories of "Frontier Violence During the War of 1812" and "English-Allied Indian Attacks", a monument honoring these events was erected on Route 603, near the dam. The name for Charles Mill Lake comes from the name of J. Charles who operated a sawmill in the vicinity where the park below the dam is situated currently. Caldwell's Atlas of Ashland County - 1874 Charles Mill Dam is located on the Black Fork of the Mohican River, 10 miles east of Mansfield, Ohio and 10 miles southwest of Ashland, Ohio; the lake is located in Ashland County and Richland County, with the dam being located in Ashland County. Charles Mill Dam was constructed from 1935–1936 and is for flood control, but is used for recreation, fish and wildlife management. Charles Mill Dam is a rolled earth fill dam with an water-resistant, clay core; the dam, is 1,390 feet long and 20 feet wide. The flood reduction system includes two dikes and one levee; these structures, the dam and levee, hold the water that may build up behind them from the 215 square miles drainage area the dam serves.

The dam has two spillways to handle water above the maximum the dam is designed to hold. There are five gates which allow the water to provide control of it. During the summer months the lake is kept at about 31 feet at the dam which provides 1,350 acres of water surface. At that level the water is backed up the Black Fork about 5.2 miles. When the dam is holding the maximum flood water it is designed to hold there would be 6,050 acres surface acres of water behind the dam and water would be backed up the Black Fork 19.8 miles.
