Vol. 1 No. 1 (2021): From Crisis to Desire: Psychoanalysis for an ethical response to current social scenarios

Psychoanalysis and the ethics of meaning-making

June 21, 2021


I would like to thank the editors for inviting me to comment on the positional paper in the inaugural issue of ‘Subject, Action & Society: Psychoanalytical Studies and Practices’, as it gave me the opportunity to reflect on the many important issues raised in the paper. At the same time, it has been a daunting task, given that the authors draw upon a broad and complex literature from diverse disciplines, and develop an extremely thorough, in-depth and comprehensive argument regarding the potential of psychoanalysis to shed light on contemporary social phenomena.
