Passion in Theory by Robyn Ferrell
Book DescriptionPhilosophy had either ignored or attacked psychoanalysis: such responses are neither warranted nor helpful. One hundred years after its inception, isn't it time to find out what psychoanalysis has to offer us? In Passion in Theory Robyn Ferrell does just that, and returns with some surprising answers. Concentrating on the work of Freud and Lacan, Robyn Ferrell asks why their work had been so influential in European philosophy yet so marginal in the Anglo-American circles. Passion in Theory explores their conception of the relationship between mind and body, and how it provides a key to many current philosophical questions. Passion in Theory is designed for students and researchers in psychoanalysis, traditional and continental philosophy.

Freud and Lacan argued that the mind's connection to the body is marked by the passion of the "knowing subject". This text explores what such a characterization means, and how it provides a key to many contemporary theoretical and philosophical concerns.
