Dr Jared Russell Lecture: Nietzsche, psychoanalysis, nihilism
Nietzsche, psychoanalysis, nihilism

This lecture will argue that the clinical practice of psychoanalysis can function as a countermeasure to the spread of nihilism and despair that Nietzsche understood would increasingly come to define our age. Historically, the task of psychoanalysis has been conceived as an effort to decipher symbolic meaning. Nietzsche saw well in advance that the systemic pathologies of the coming era would have more to do with the destruction of symbolizing capacities at their very bases, the result of which would be the unleashing of destructive forces that would turn the world into a suicidal nightmare. Special attention will be devoted to the clinical problem of concreteness, as an increasingly pervasive manifestation of psychopathology or nihilism in the twenty-first century.

Jared Russell, PhD, is a psychoanalyst in private clinical practice in New York City. He is a Fellow of the International Psychoanalytic Association, and a faculty member and clinical supervisor at several analytic training institutes. He is the author of Nietzsche and the Clinic: Psychoanalysis, Philosophy, Metaphysics (Routledge, 2017),  Psychoanalysis and Deconstruction: Freud's Psychic Apparatus (Routledge 2020), and Sublimation and Superego: Psychoanalysis Between Two Deaths (Routledge, forthcoming 2021).
