Seminar presented by Professor Ian Parker
This lecture addresses the intersection between three forms of refusal, treating each of those forms of refusal as operating as a form of ethics. Rather than “applying” psychoanalysis to the problematic of psychology and psychoanalysis to discover what a correct reformulation of each of those psy practices would entail, psychoanalysis is also treated as a particular problematic, a field of debate as intense as the debate inside psychology and psychiatry.
It is political theory and practice that provides the contested frame for working through the historical constitution and ethics of “anti-psychology”, “anti-psychiatry” and “anti-psychoanalysis”. Here, “education” is a fraught resource and consequence of these debates about the nature of ethics.
