Psychoanalysis and the Future of Theory

Overview

Malcolm Bowie is already well known as a writer who has made "theory" and "criticism" intelligible to each other in new ways. In this new collection he examines the meanings that psychoanalysis has ascribed to the tense and the devices by which later Lacan completes and complexifies Freud's discussions of temporality.

Overview

Malcolm Bowie is already well known as a writer who has made "theory" and "criticism" intelligible to each other in new ways. In this new collection he examines the meanings that psychoanalysis has ascribed to the tense and the devices by which later Lacan completes and complexifies Freud's discussions of temporality. "What kind of future can psychoanalysis have when it talks about futurity in this fashion?" In answering this question Malcolm Bowie focuses on an exemplary moment of crisis in the history of psychoanalytic thought. He challenges some of the fundamental Freudian assumptions about temporality of discourse and draws attention to a whole new range of opportunities that a "future-conscious" psychoanalysis might offer critics and theorists of other intellectual persuasions.

Bowie calls for a new openness towards art among psychoanalytic theorists, drawing his examples from a wide variety of artistic practices. Musicians (Mozart, Mahler, Schoenberg and Fauré), visual artists (Michelangelo, Leonardo, Tiepolo and Matisse) and writers (Goethe, Proust and Svevo) are all placed in an illuminating two-way relationship with the writings of Freud.

He draws attention to opportunities that a "future- conscious" psychoanalysis might offer, and calls for a new openness towards art among psychoanalytic theorists, placing musicians, visual artists and writers in an illuminating two-way relationship with the writings of Freud.
