THE INSTITUTE FOR PSYCHOANALYTIC TRAINING AND RESEARCH
proudly presents the Argentinian psychoanalyst:

Mariano Horenstein on Psychoanalysis in Minor Language

“Psychoanalysts, beyond our differences, feel relatively comfortable in relation to time. However, it is in relation to space where we can expect a more provocative interpellation. Deleuze has stated this accurately: ‘We think too much in terms of history, either personal or universal, but becomings belong to Geography’. It is perhaps in Geography where a great deal of the future of (more…)
