Event Details

This seminar will address the very ambivalent and volatile relationship between psychoanalysis and philosophical discourse. The ongoing tension between the epistemological grounding of psychoanalysis and the inexact art and “science” of interpretation needs a reexamination. Given the dominance of Behavioral and cognitive psychology and the relegation of Psychoanalysis to an upper class luxury with very little impact on everyday life, thinking on the Left must reevaluate the contemporary context of psychopathology in light of the its all too forgotten transformative potential.
