New Study Group: In Dark Times, Freud’s and Ours at Après-Coup

Posted November 11th, 2017 by Tamar Schwartz
Categories: Announcements

Après-Coup Psychoanalytic Association: New Study Group: In Dark Times, Freud’s and Ours
FIRST MEETING: Sunday, November 19, 2017, 1-2:30 pm. We will meet every 3 weeks.

In these dark times, “the light of the public obscures everything” (Heidegger). The refuge that psychoanalysis provided in Freud’s time against the public exposure of everyday life is all the more crucial today given the encroachment of mediatized lives accompanied by the persistent demand to program “a life of one’s own”. Fortunately, the unconscious has no biography and it is unnecessary to sacrifice the truths of desire encountered in an analysis for trumped-up stories. This study group will explore writers, beginning with Freud who, unable to live with what passes for politics, embark upon a journey of psychical emigration and travel through political landscapes, making of writing a political act. We will be particularly interested in the writings of exiles and extra-territorials such as Hannah Arendt, Joseph Roth, Norman Manea, and Czeslaw Milosz as well as post-war French thinkers including Lacan, Derrida, Lyotard and Blanchot.

Location: 201 W. 77th street (corner of Amsterdam Avenue), suite15D.

While attendance is free, registration is required. Please contact Salvatore F. Guido at sfrguido@gmail.com or 212 229 0811 for details and to register.
