Unconscious Incarnations considers the prestige of the physique in psychoanalytic conception and perform, bringing Freud and Lacan into dialog with continental philosophy to discover the heterogeneity of embodied existence. by means of doing so, the physique isn't any longer simply an item of clinical inquiry but in addition a lived physique, a resource of over the top instinct and affectivity, and a uncooked animality unique from mere materiality.
The participants to this quantity encompass philosophers, psychoanalytic students, and practitioners whose interdisciplinary explorations reformulate conventional psychoanalytic options resembling trauma, therapeutic, wish, subjectivity, and the subconscious. jointly, they construct towards the realization that phenomenologies of embodiment flow psychoanalytic thought and perform clear of representationalist versions and towards an incarnational method of psychic existence. below this kind of carnal horizon, trauma manifests as wounds and scars, treatment as contact, subjectivity as physically boundedness, and the subconscious ‘real’ as an over the top rest of flesh.
Unconscious incarnations sign occasions the place the unsignifiable seems to be between signifiers, the invisible in the noticeable, and shortage inside of presence. In sum: the place the flesh turns into note and the be aware keeps its flesh.
Unconscious Incarnations seeks to rouse this incarnational method as a way to holiday via tacit taboos towards the physique in psychology and psychoanalysis. This interdisciplinary paintings will attraction vastly to psychoanalysts and psychoanalytic psychotherapists in addition to philosophy students and scientific psychologists.
