When I last taught this course a few years ago, I focused on the work of Mark Solms, specifically his ground-breaking article entitled “The Conscious Id” (Neuropsychoanalysis, 2013).  I wrote about that article and a few others in Chapter 2 from my book The Wisdom of Lived Experience (2016, Karnac).

For this 6-week course I will use that chapter  entitled  “Neuroscience emphases on Lived Experience” as the basic text, with additional optional readings drawn from cited references (Solms, Friston, Bolte Taylor).  My hope is to keep the neuropsychoanalytic understandings we cover as close to clinical material as possible.  As noted below, the last of our 6 sessions will focus on clinical vignettes which arise from the learnings and discussion arising from the readings.

Learning Objectives

  1. To gain familiarization with some current neuropsychoanalytic views of psychic functioning, which may anchor psychoanalytic perspectives
  2. Specifically, to gain familiarity with Mark Solms (The Conscious Id), Karl Friston (free psychic energy), Bolte Taylor (My Stroke of Insight)
  3. To relate some of these readings with one’s accruing clinical understandings about the psyche.
