    Consciousness and the Unconscious

    Monday, October 5, 2015
    7:00 PM

    "Consciousness and the Unconscious" with Mark Solms, Ph.D.

    This is the second in a series of seminars in which Mark Solms lays the theoretical groundwork for a putative revision of some aspects of the NYPSI psychoanalytic curriculum in light of neuroscientific advances in subjects of fundamental interest to psychoanalysis. The first seminar focused on drive, instinct and affect. This (second) seminar focuses on consciousness, the unconscious and repression.

    FREE. OPEN TO NYPSI CANDIDATES ONLY.
