Unease – And That Without End? Psychoanalysis and Culture in the 21st Century

Since 2012 / Project Head: Prof. Dr. Christine Kirchhoff

Project Description

In this project, a re-reading is being conducted of the implicit and explicit culture-theory assumptions in psychoanalytical theory, and especially with Sigmund Freud. Their timeliness and informative strength for current interdisciplinary discourses and issues are being examined here. In this regard, the focus is on the relationship with critical social theory, and especially that of Theodor W. Adorno. Continuous publication activities are occurring here, together with the project’s integration into the teaching activities in the "Psychoanalytical Culture Studies" course.
