Beschrijving

Psychoanalysis claims that the individual


human mind is structured by its childhood
relationships with its parents. But the
theory of attachment, evolutionary
psychology and contemporary philosophy
of mind have all recently re-introduced
new dimensions of innateness into mental
development and pathology. If attachment
is an instinct, then what is the
psychological status of the child's relation
to the mother? If the mind is in part a
product of evolution, then how far down
do the inhibitory mechanisms of the mind
go? If the mind of the child is shaped by
their encounter with a set of prohibitions,
how, in the light of contemporary
'cognitive science' and philosophy of
mind, can the child be conceived as
'taking on' a rule? How is the construction
of the mind related to the normative ends
of cognitive experience? Today, it is
Lacanian psychoanalysis which most
vigorously defends psychoanalytic theory
and practice from the encroachment of the
biological and 'cognitive' sciences. But a
paradigm shift nevertheless appears to be
underway, in which the classical
psychoanalytic theories about the Oedipus
complex, primary and secondary
repression, sexual difference and
psychosexuality, the role of symbols,etc,
are being dismantled and reintegrated into
a new synthesis of biological and
psychological theories. In this collection
of theoretical essays by philosophers and
psychoanalysts, encounters are brought
about between Freudian and Lacanian
psychoanalysis on the one hand, and
attachment theory, evolutionary
psychology and philosophy of mind on
the other.
