Aning – Good Mourning

11 december 19:00

Good Mourning

This is the fifth and ambitious part of ”Psykoanalytisk salong – Sexualitet*5”. It´s for those who desire psychoanalytic and existential explorations into topics of love, sexuality, the voice etc. Most welcome

(For those that desire even more we recommend that you take a look at Aning Hardcore, ”A day of mourning” here>>

Lecturer: Jonathan Lear (psychoanalyst, John U. Nef Distinquished Service Prof. in the Committe on Social Thought, prof. of philosophy, and Roman Family Director of the Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society at the University of Chicago)

This talk will consider mourning in the context of culturally shared fantasies of world-catastrophe. In the context of Freud’s essays, “On Transience” and “Mourning and Melancholia” this talk will consider what a revolt against mourning is, and what it is about mourning that makes it healthy in human life.

The lecture will be followed by a talk between Jonathan Lear, Johan Eriksson (psychoanalyst, Ph.D in philosphy) and Alfred Bordado Sköld (psychologist, master in philosophy, Ph.D fellow at the Department of Communication and Psychology at Aalborg University)

The lecture and the following talk will be in English
