Description

This collection of essays on the importance of Freudian thought for analytic philosophy, investigates its impact on mind, ethics, sexuality, religion and epistemology. Marking a clear departure from the long-standing debate over whether Freudian thought is scientific or not, this book expands the framework of philosophical inquiry, demonstrating how fertile and mutually enriching the relationship between philosophy and psychoanalysis can be. The essays are divided into four clear sections, addressing the implications of Freud for philosophy of mind, ethics, sexuality and civilization. The authors discuss the problems psychoanalysis poses for contemporary philosophy as well as what philosophy can learn from Freud's legacy and undeniable influence. For instance, the book discusses the problems presented by pyschoanalytic theories of the mind for the philosophy of language; the issues which late-1990s theories of mind and meaning raise for psychoanalytic accounts of emotion, metaphor, the will and self-deception; the question whether psychoanalytic theory is essential in understanding sexuality, love, humour and the tensions which arise out of personal relationships. This work is a critical examination of Freudian and post-Freudian theory, adding a significant dimension to the debate between psychoanalysis and contemporary philosophy.
