In this episode (the first in a series) Neil & Jared talk about the role of the analyst as a secretary of the unconscious and how this relates to the drive.

Hi

In this episode (the first in a series) Neil & Jared talk about the role of the analyst as a secretary of the unconscious and how this relates to the drive.

A general outline:
 
  • This is take two (we tried to record earlier, but kids...) 
  • We talk about the role of the analyst and psychoanalysis as opposed to a psychotherapist/psychotherapy
  • We  talk about the unconscious as "a part of us that has a mind of its own" (again) 
  • The unconscious does not exist it insists 
  • The idea that if we shut down the unconscious we end up empowering the drive 
  • Freud's 1920 Beyond the Pleasure Principle and how it relates to the unconscious & the drive 
  • Jered uses the intervention of scansion to put an end to things
