The course will address contemporary issues in psychoanalysis from the vantage points of body, mind and brain. The goal is to enhance critical thinking in inter-disciplinary discourse in areas of central interest to psychoanalytic theory and practice. The opportunities and risks of this endeavor will be explored through careful examination of the pertinent literature on embodiment, affect theory, evolutionary biology, memory systems, dreams, mentalization, metaphor and fantasy.
