Archetype and Psyche in Crisis and Growth
Tim Read - Author

Explores extraordinary states of mind, from madness to mysticism: what are they, why are they important, and how can we harness them for psychological and spiritual growth?

Deconstruction, Psychoanalysis, and the Coen Brothers
Clark Buckner - Author

Everything you wanted to know about the Lacanian critique of deconstruction, but were afraid to ask the Coen Brothers.

Lacan's Four Discourses and the Development of the Student Writer
T. R. Johnson - Author

Delineates Lacan’s theory of the four discourses as a practical framework through which faculty can reflect on where their students are, developmentally, and where they might go.

Jungian Depth Psychology and Psychedelic Experience
Scott J. Hill - Author

Demonstrates the relevance of Jungian archetypal psychology to psychedelic and transpersonal research.

Psychoanalytic perspectives on Kristeva’s fiction.

New Essays on Jacques Lacan's The Ethics of Psychoanalysis
Charles Freeland - Author

A study of Lacan’s engagement with the Western philosophical traditions of ethical and political thought in his seventh seminar and later work.

With its privileging of the unconscious, Jacques Lacan’s psychoanalytic thought would seem to be at odds with the goals and methods of philosophy. Lacan himself embraced the term “anti-philosophy” in characterizing his work, and yet his seminars u...(Read More)

Capitalism and Ontology
A. Kiarina Kordela - Author

A psychoanalytic theory of biopolitics.

Although both share a focus on human life as it is inscribed by power, Foucauldian biopolitics and Lacanian psychoanalysis have remained isolated from and even opposed to one another. In Being, Time, Bios, A. Kiarina Kordela aims to overcome this divide, formulating a historical ontology that draws from Spinoza, Marx, Heidegger, and Sartre to theorize the changed character of ...(Read More)
