Course Description:
This option explores the impact of Freudian psychoanalysis on the work of a range of seminal French thinkers. At the outset students will be introduced to key Freudian concepts and their introduction into French culture. The course then investigates the Existentialist challenge to psychoanalysis, the "return to Freud" project of French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan, and the uses of psychoanalytic thought for literary theory. We then move on to study the orientation given to Freudian thought in Foucault's and Althusser's history of ideas.
