Aliveness / Deadness
March 21, 2003 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
“As long as the animals are there, there is life in the symbol.”
In the opening years of our new century and under the shadow of terrorist attacks on American soil, these following questions have become urgent: What makes for our sense of aliveness and feeling real? What puts us in touch with our own voice? What confers a sense of finding and creating a path that is true for us? What kills it, making us feel deadness? The focus of this lecture will examine the space of aliveness, which is created between analysand and analyst, between the ego and animus/a, in worship between ritual and repetition compulsion, and in imagination between the factual and the symbolic.
