Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Goals and contents:
This lecture is an expedition through the cultural theories of psychoanalysis after Freud and Lacan. It deals with the inventions and productions of human culture and their consequences in the past and present.

The lecture is divided into six parts, each comprising 1-3 units.

1. Identification and the Imaginary:
Shamelessness and the spectacle of the present - literature and the materiality of the letter - film and the forgetting of immediacy - music and the infinity of fading away - games and the pleasure of a linearity of approach to the goal of drive.

2. Love and the Symbolic:
A symptom is better than no symptom - love stories and other horror films - phantasm, object a and the drive - social media, the hatred of the truth and its effects - speak and let die.

3. Enjoying and the Real:
Toxicomania and passion - addiction, drive and the demand of the other - entropy of behavior and the recurring impossibility of satisfaction - discontent in culture and the politics of psychoanalysis.

4 Neuromarketing and Fascism:
Racism and enjoying the rejection of the other - segregation and the subversion of the subject - causality or correlation - machines do not learn - the logic of optimization and discourse of the university.

5. Diagnoses, Schemata and Speaking Bodies:
Psychiatry, antipsychiatry and the practice of psychotherapy - the measurement of the quantifiable body and the separation of the body image - the segregation of the subject in diagnostics.

6. Contemporary Culture and Clinic
Ethics of psychoanalysis and the downsides of biopolitics - from neurosis, psychosis and perversion to parlêtre and escabeau - borderline and personality disorder or hainamoration and ordinary psychosis - the subject cannot remember what it knows.

Method:
Oral lecture; literature and texts via pdf (learning platform, email) and projection; pictures, film and music (excerpts) via beamer and audio in the auditorium.
