New in Actuality
The Real in the 21st Century
Anguila - (Eel)
The author examines the intimate, slippery, and electric relationship between psychoanalysis and politics: although "psychoanalysis is the exact reverse of politics," "the unconscious is politics." Moreover, "psychoanalysis is undoubtedly not revolutionary," but it "is subversive" and did "tremendous damage to tradition."
