The Unconscious

Online lecture/seminar series with

Professor Susan Long

This series will examine the idea of the unconscious from its beginnings in the work of Fredrik Schelling – a German philosopher of the Romantic period – through Psychoanalysis and Socioanalysis – to current views of the unconscious in neuro-psychoanalysis and eco-semiotics. The concept of the unconscious has endured through different iterations and has influenced not only clinicians and therapists, but also philosophers, scientists, artists, social scientists and authors. It has seeped into contemporary and popular language and influences the ways in which we see ourselves and each other.

In the series we will approach the many and varied conceptions of the unconscious through short lectures, recommended readings and discussions. The reading is recommended but not essential for attendance.

The sessions are led by Professor Susan Long who has studied ideas in unconscious dynamics for over 40 years.
