Nietzschean Psychoanalysis

October 8 2016, 12-6 PM — NPAP 

Freud proclaimed that he was afraid to read Nietzsche because he did not want to see his own ideas presented before him. Many considered Nietzsche the first “psychologist” while it was still part of the tradition of philosophy and there was no such a thing on an institutional level. Nietzsche’s work above all considers the individual and social psyche of modern man, yet few analysts study or incorporate his work. When Freud questions who could be the analyst of a neurotic society in Civilization and its Discontents, only Nietzsche comes to mind. 

Jung devoted several years of his private seminar to Nietzsche but did not publish on it in his life time. Reich’s return to vitality and drive theory calls up Nietzsche, while Lacan’s work on the signifier retraces Nietzschean semiotics. Yet neither refer to him either. Why is Nietzsche taboo - and how did such a man unknown in his lifetime and proclaimed mad after become a core of the academic canon? Join us for a look at the unspoken connection between philosophy and psychoanalysis bridged by Nietzsche’s heroic journey.
