Liliane Abensour, "Psychotic Temptation"
English | ISBN: 0415673224, 0415673216 | 2013 | 193 pages | PDF | 2 MB
How can we understand the pull towards that which we fear: psychosis?
In this thought provoking book, Abensour proposes the idea of a temptation towards psychosis rather than a regression, as a response to the hatred or denial of the subject's origins. She shares her reflections on her psychoanalytic work with psychotic patients focusing on their struggle to achieve a coherent sense of a self that can inhabit a shared world. Abensour locates this struggle within the universal human struggle to achieve a balance between what we can and cannot allow ourselves to know about the reality of death and of our insignificance in the world.
