CFP Next Monographic Section: “What is psychoanalysis today? A critique of psychoanalytic theory and clinic from the philosophical point of view”
Guest Editors: Nicol A. Barria-Asenjo and Slavoj Zizek
The RHV, an International Journal of Philosophy, published by the Instituto de Filosofía of the Universidad de Valparaíso, Chile, invites the academic community to collaborate in its next monographic section, first issue 2022, that the intellectuals Nicol A. Barria-Asenjo and Slavoj Zizek will prepare under the title: “What is psychoanalysis today? A critique of psychoanalytic theory and clinic from the philosophical point of view”. The project seeks to contribute to the debate between philosophy and psychoanalysis. What contributions does philosophy make to the reformulation of psychoanalytic theory and clinic?
In the words of the editors, we find:
Philosophy and psychoanalysis are not external to each other; they do not relate to each other as a universal worldview and a specific science and practice of mental disorders. But, as it became clear to Lacan and his followers, psychoanalysis compels us to redefine the very domain of philosophy: what is external reality? What is a human being? And vice versa: only philosophy allows us to perceive the most radical dimension of the psychoanalytic discovery, how psychoanalysis shatters our most common view of reality and our place in it. We invite researchers from different continents to try to answer the question guiding this project.
Deadline: December 15, 2022.
Publication of the monograph: May 2023.
