Writings on psychoanalysis Freud and Lacan by Louis Althusser ( )
9 editions published between 1996 and 2008 in English and held by 1,884 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A prominent member of the French structuralist movement, Louis Althusser was influential for reinvigorating Marxist thought in France in the 196Os with celebrated works such as For Marx and Reading Capital. Yet many readers are not as familiar with the profound impact of psychoanalysis on Althusser's life and work. Writings on Psychoanalysis gathers, for the first time, Althusser's major essays on psychoanalytic thought. The volume begins with Freud and Lacan, which lays the groundwork for comprehending Althusser's entry into psychoanalysis. Letters to D. was the result of Althusser's fervent reading of Rene Diatkine's paper "Aggressiveness and Fantasies of Aggression," years before Diatkine was his psychoanalyst. Invited by Leon Chertok to participate in the "International Symposium on the Unconscious," at the Tbilisi colloquium, the chapter The Tbilisi Affair presents Althusser's essay "The Discovery of Dr. Freud." The chapter In the Name of the Analysands... reprints Althusser's "Open Letter to Analysands and Analysts in Solidarity with Jacques Lacan," written the day after the famous meeting on the dissolution of the Ecole Freudienne de Paris. Characterizing Lacan as a "magnificent and pitiful Harlequin," the 'open letter' relates Althusser's untimely outburst at that assembly and the "spectacular and violent intervention he subsequently made in the presence of Lacan." The volume closes with the correspondence between Althusser and Lacan, detailing their first and last meetings with each other and the launching of one of the central alliances of contemporary French thought
Machiavelli and us by Louis Althusser ( Book )
10 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Displacing traditional controversies over the Florentine diplomat, Althusser argues for the profound unity of the Machiavellian problematic, as deployed in the revolutionary manifesto of The Prince and the experimental historical comparisons of the Discourses. Machiavelli's apparent theoretical object - the laws of politics or history - is revealed to be a determinate practical objective: the foundation and preservation of a national-popular state. But if Machiavelli can specify the conditions for a fruitful encounter between virtu (political agency) and fortuna (the contingency of the real), his grasp of the necessity of contingency renders him the supreme artisan of an aleatory materialism
The spectre of Hegel : early writings by Louis Althusser ( Book )
7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This collection of texts from the period 1945-1953 turns these interpretations of Althusser on their heads: we discover that there was a 'young Althusser' as well as the 'mature Althusser' we are already familiar with. In his fascinating Master's thesis. 'On Content in the Thought of G. W. F. Hegel' (1947), Althusser developed a position which he was later to attack ferociously: namely, that the revolutionary potential of the Hegelian dialectic could be defended against Hegel's own political conservatism. We see Althusser still wrestling with the spectres of Hegel and of Catholicism in another long text, his letter to Jean Lacroix, and, finally, we see his own 'epistemological break' in the piece 'On Marxism' from 1953
Philosophy of the encounter : later writings, 1978-87 by Louis Althusser ( Book )
4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the late 1970s and 1980s, Louis Althusser endured a period of mental instability during which he murdered his wife and was committed to a psychiatric hospital. Spanning this period, this fourth volume of political and philosophical writings reveals his wrestling with a series of theoretical problems to produce some of his work. In the late 1970s and 1980s, Louis Althusser endured a period of intense mental instability during which he murdered his wife and was committed to a psychiatric hospital. Spanning this deeply troubling period, this fourth and final volume of political and philosophical writings reveals Althusser wrestling in a creative and unorthodox fashion with a whole series of theoretical problems to produce some of his very finest work. In his profound exploration of questions of determinism and contingency, Althusser developed a "philosophy of the encounter," which he links to a hidden and subterranean tradition in the history of Western thought
