jung - lacan dialogues: the unconscious


This is the eleventh in a series of Jung-Lacan Dialogues aimed at fostering an engagement between two important and creative schools of psychoanalysis. What is the common ground between them? What are the intractable differences? Is it possible to find a common language or achieve mutual understandings? And what are the implications for clinical practice?

the  unconscious

Gwion Jones and David Henderson will elaborate on the history and development of this concept in the work of Jung and Lacan, and reflect on some of the implications for clinical work.
