    Art, aesthetics, psychoanalysis

    Artefilosofia Journal

    The first question that comes to mind when addressing the relationship between art and psychoanalysis is the following: By what right and on what grounds, or yet what entitles psychoanalysis to take upon itself to issue judgment upon art and/or upon artists? This first question immediately unfolds into many. To what extent can a theory of the psychological unconscious extrapolate its primary field of application to head down to theaters, museums, concert rooms, canvases, sculptures, installations and so forth? Being an eminently clinical discipline, do we run the risk of transforming psychoanalysis into a worldview? Into a totalitarian system capable of deciphering the meaning of everything that presents itself upon the suspicious gaze and attentive ears of the psychoanalyst?

    The Spiritual: a Valid Category for the Humanities?

    An interdisciplinary debate

    Ce colloque se propose de tenter une théorisation de la notion de spirituel afin d'en faire une catégorie scientifique utilisable dans le champ des sciences humaines. Depuis le poststructuralisme, la théorie, notamment littéraire, est devenue experte en matière d'analyse et de remise en question du soubassement idéologique de tout discours. Toutefois, cette « herméneutique du soupçon » (Ricoeur, 1975) se trouve démunie lorsqu'il s'agit d'élaborer une herméneutique « instauratrice de sens » (Ricoeur, 1965) permettant de penser l'humain au-delà de sa matérialité.

    IV International Conference of Myth Criticism

    Myth and Emotions

    Along with rational logic there is an emotional logic, responsible for many actions that we carry out. Myth Criticism tends to tackle mythical stories from a structural, social and historical perspective. However, it often ignores the emotional component. It seems as if the affective dimension, particularly active in our contemporary society, is not considered relevant in the studies of mythology. The Conference will examine the function undertaken by emotions in the structure of mythical stories and in the processes of mythification of characters and historical events. The object of the study will focus on ancient, medieval and modern myths in contemporary literature and art (since 1900).

    Theory in Love

    International Comparative Literature Association XXIst Congress - session 17327

    In The Politics of Friendship Derrida reflects on the question of the indecidable possibility, the “peut-être,” of love, of friendship, and of desire: “‘Je t'aime entends- tu?’; cette déclaration d'aimance hyperbolique ne pourrait donner sa chance à une politique de l'amitié que soumise à l'épreuve du peut-être, de l'indécidable” How then can we express a refusal, a no, without listening, without hearing? How can one express the divergent and differential possibilities opened by this phrase? And yet Derrida already has, in Envois, where he explores, theorizes and dramatizes a love affair, tracing the course of its refusal in the various postcards and letters which remain unsent, forever awaiting their destination. This panel concerns theory speaking in terms of love, seeking to establish the relationship between “ l’âmour” and theory.

    Creating Characters, Inventing Lives: The Art of the Self II

    Vth international Sympnosium of the international Network for Alternative Academia

    This trans-disciplinary research project is interested in exploring the narrative construction of experience and self, the lessons we can derive from the creative process and identifying how productive it is beyond the boundaries of the work and creation itself. Regardless of our awareness, our understanding of our selves, we have always been the product of creation – the result of the playful and subversive blurring of the boundaries between fiction and life, between self and other, between fantasy and reality. Who we are – how we tell the story of our lives – has always traversed the divides between artistic invention, personal reflection and historic fact; being as much the product of the creative process as the characters depicted by artists in their works.

    Anthropology, Culture and Cognition. Freud, a century after Totem and Taboo

    Although hardly avoiding intense criticism by anthropologists such as Boas and Malinowski, Freud’s theories did, however, have a profound impact upon anthropology, receiving an enthusiastic reception among Culture and Personality theorists during the middle decades of the 20th century. Leading anthropologists of this trend relied on Freud’s contributions to develop approaches based on the relationship between culture and personality, expanding their views on the importance of culture in personality formation, on the constitution of culture patterns and on the formulation of national character. One hundred years after the publication of Totem and Taboo (1913), this two-day seminar seeks to address the influence of Freud’s legacy in contemporary anthropological thought. It also aims to explore the new interface between the two disciplines, namely through the recent work produced on kinship and on the cognitive approaches to the study of religion.

    Conflicts, Limits, Recognition

    5th International Conference for Philosophy and Psychoanalysis of the International Society for Psychoanalysis and Philosophy (ISPP)

    La théorie de la reconnaissance occupe une place privilégiée dans le débat intellectuel contemporain. Dans le contexte de la philosophie politique et sociale, des auteurs comme Jürgen Habermas, Charles Taylor, Nancy Fraser, Axel Honneth, entre autres, ont montré leur importance et leur valeur éthico-politique. Le lien entre la reconnaissance, l'autonomie, l’identité subjective et les transformations politico-économiques, est au cœur du débat entre ces auteurs. Dans le domaine de la psychanalyse, la notion de reconnaissance a également eu une forte présence.

    “Psychotherapy” in Europe. Local specificities and Common Trends

    On observe actuellement un puissant mouvement d’homogénéisation de toutes les enjeux qui concerne « la psychothérapie » (catégorie qui inclut la psychanalyse), qu’il s’agisse de ses usages, de ses théories et méthodes, des questions professionnelles. Le colloque vise à comprendre à la fois ce mouvement d’homogénéisation et la recomposition d’identités psychothérapeutiques nationales. La première journée sera dédiée à « La psychothérapie au croisement de questions anthropologique et institutionnelles », la seconde à « Politiques de santé mentale et régulation de la pratique psychothérapeutique »

    Les sciences humaines et sociales en Grèce et en Turquie. Outils, enjeux et orientations

    En cette deuxième année de ce séminaire consacré à la construction des savoirs en sciences humaines et sociales en Grèce et en Turquie, l’histoire reste au cœur de la réflexion. Nous nous intéresserons aux thématiques privilégiées de la recherche historique actuelle dans les universités grecques et turques. Nous ferons également une place aux travaux portant sur « l’histoire de l’histoire », en présentant diverses approches critiques de la construction des sciences historiques. Dans un objectif de croisement disciplinaire, des sondages dans des domaines voisins tels que l’anthropologie, la sociologie ou les sciences religieuses seront poursuivis. En 2009-2010, deux ou trois séances seront consacrées à l’introduction de la psychanalyse dans les pays mis en étude.

    Déviance(s)

    E.A. CLIMAS (Université Michel de Montaigne-Bordeaux 3)

    Si la déviance est un comportement qui échappe aux règles admises par la société, pour parler de déviance, il faut que soient réunis trois éléments : existence d'une norme, transgression de cette norme et stigmatisation de cette transgression (« The deviant is one to whom that label has successfully been applied », Becker). L'origine de la déviance n'est donc pas à chercher dans la nature profonde de l’individu, mais bien plutôt dans son « rôle social », lequel détermine son identité (Mead, Berger). La déviance s’inscrit dans une dialectique dont le pôle opposé est forcément la norme qu’elle enfreint. Partant le déviant est celui qui, par consensus communautaire, est affublé d’une étiquette (« labeling theory » ou « théorie interactionniste de la déviance »), véritable « stigmate social » (Goffman).

Comment les lecteurs anglo-américains et français se sont-ils appropriés ses textes ?
