New library of psychoanalysis 'beyond the couch' series


This collection of essays explores psychoanalysis in the context of modern communication technologies of the voice (i.e. and compatible with psychoanalysis' "talking cure"), namely the telephone and Internet. The essays advocate an interest in these technologies as influential components of modern subjectivities and how we communicate and share intimacy. They examine the new technological spaces and how phenomena like transference and other ways of "relating" work there. They consider clinical issues with distance analyses over either the phone or Internet. Three essays consider the developmental effects of growing up as digital natives. Other essays consider the general stakes of new technologies in the psychoanalytic setting, as well as how guilt and aggression operate online. The contributors are mostly European psychologist and psychoanalysts.
