Philosophy Staff Student Seminar Series

Philosophy and Psychoanalysis

In the 20th century psychoanalysis posed some very significant challenges to the modern western philosophical tradition; especially through its critique of the Enlightenment conception of the ‘rational autonomous subject’. This seminar series will examine the influence of psychoanalytic ideas on the development of 20th century philosophy and the extent to which psychoanalysis still needs to be taken seriously in contemporary forms of philosophical inquiry.
