Burying Freud

[ Burying Freud Homepage | Freud's Seduction Theory Homepage ]

In a message dated 96-04-21 20:30:00 EDT, Jonathan Ames writes:

Finally, I wonder how the erotics of the wish for conscious interpretation of the unconscious response compare to that of the wish to control and eradicate insanity as a threat to humanity. Perhaps the difference between the shamanic and the scientific is essentially erotic -- and therefore, practically speaking, unarguable.


Jonathan:
Since *the erotic* may be understood to prevail in tandem with *the thanatic* as radix and final cause, would not "the wish to control and eradicate insanity as a threat to humanity" be the euphemistic dressing for a wish to control and eradicate death?
