Content

This course introduces the key psychoanalytic ideas of Sigmund Freud on the individual psyche and society, and the way these ideas were developed in the later thought of Jacques Lacan.

The course has three modules.  In the opening module, students will critically examine Freud’s ideas on parapraxis (slips), the interpretation of dreams, the meaning of symptoms, and the nature of human sexuality.

Module 2 examines Freud’s ideas on the society, and discontents bedevilling the human condition and living with others, critically comparing his ideas with that of other philosophers.

In module 3, we turn to Lacan’s ‘return to the meaning of Freud’, looking at his ideas on the role of language in shaping the psyche, the nature and function of law, the differences between the sexes, and the nature of psychoanalytic interpretation.
