About this product
- DescriptionWhy is stupidity sublime? What is the value of a 'dialectics of igrance' for analysts and academics? Kwing Nothing, Staying Stupid draws on recent research to provide a thorough and illuminating evaluation of the status of kwledge and truth in psychoanalysis. Adopting a Lacanian framework, Dany Nobus and Malcolm Quinn question the basic assumption that kwledge is universally good and describe how psychoanalysis is in a position to place forms of kwledge in a dialectical relationship with n-kwledge, blindness, igrance and stupidity. The book draws out the implications of a psychoanalytic theory of kwledge for the practices of kwledge construction, acquisition and transmission across the humanities and social sciences. The book is divided into two sections. The first section addresses the foundations of a psychoanalytic approach to kwledge as it emerges from clinical practice, whilst the second section considers the problems and issues of applied psychoanalysis, and the ambiguous position of the analyst in the public sphere. Subjects covered include: The Logic of Psychoanalytic Discovery Creative Kwledge Production and Institutionalised Doctrine The Desire to Kw versus the Fall of Kwledge Epistemological Regression and the Problem of Applied Psychoanalysis This provocative discussion of the dialectics of kwing and t kwing will be welcomed by practicing psychoanalysts and students of psychoanalytic studies, but also by everyone working in the fields of social science, philosophy and cultural studies.
