World, Affectivity, Trauma : Heidegger and Post-Cartesian Psychoanalysis, Paperback / softback Book

World, Affectivity, Trauma : Heidegger and Post-Cartesian Psychoanalysis Paperback / softback

Part of the Psychoanalytic Inquiry Book Series series


Stolorow and his collaborators' post-Cartesian psychoanalytic perspective - intersubjective-systems theory - is a phenomenological contextualism that illuminates worlds of emotional experience as they take form within relational contexts.

After outlining the evolution and basic ideas of this framework, Stolorow shows both how post-Cartesian psychoanalysis finds enrichment and philosophical support in Heidegger's analysis of human existence, and how Heidegger's existential philosophy, in turn, can be enriched and expanded by an encounter with post-Cartesian psychoanalysis.

In doing so, he creates an important psychological bridge between post-Cartesian psychoanalysis and existential philosophy in the phenomenology of emotional trauma.
