This course will consider ways in which psychoanalysis may be used to contemplate the contemporary social world. We will study psychoanalytic thinking that addresses topics such as prejudice; climate change; extreme economic disparity; the public’s relationship to facts; and the polarization of political discourse, including tendencies towards various forms of nationalism. We will discuss the ways in which social experiences impact the individual psyche, and place the clinical situation within its many social contexts. Implications for a psychoanalytically informed social justice practice will be explored.
