Psychoanalysis: Philosophy, Art and Clinic (2015)

2015 | ISBN: 1443880469 | English | 264 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

This volume offers a rich tapestry of psychoanalytic thought. The authors demonstrate bold creativity in their use of psychoanalytic concepts to think about a wide range of problems in philosophy, art and the clinic. The collection grew out of Psychoanalysis, Culture and Society, a conference for postgraduate students and research fellows organised by the Centre for Psychoanalysis, Middlesex University, London, in June 2014. The range of themes addressed at the conference demonstrates the interdisciplinary character of psychoanalytic studies. Few of the contributors are affiliated with established psychoanalytic research centres, and, consequently, can feel isolated within their respective departments. They were pleased to have the opportunity to meet with others who are pursuing related questions.
