Neither Angels nor Demons: Psychoanalysis and Technology
ICLO Society of the NLS Clinical & Theoretical Seminar 2019/2020 NEITHER ANGELS NOR DEMONS: WHAT SHOULD PSYCHOANALYSTS KNOW ABOUT TECHNOLOGIES ?? Webinar via Zoom with Gustavo Dessal
Discussant: Rik Loose Chair: Florencia Shanahan
After some years of personal research, I discovered that the psychoanalytic community behaves in a subtle ambiguity with respect to technology. Their approach to this growing phenomenon suffers at times a deviation due to moral prejudices and a certain mistrust. But technologies are here to stay, and it is preferable that we learn to conceive them as new symptomatic challenges which we must face. GD
