CLINICAL & CULTURAL EXPLORATIONS

LACAN, LIFE, MORTALITY AND LANGUAGE

This book takes examples from the psychoanalytic clinic as well as cultural references ranging from ancient Persia to London’s Theatreland in order to elaborate the question of subjectivity, reality and truth from a psychoanalytic perspective. In the era of hyperreality, the agency of branding and marketing strategies have overshadowed the reality of a human being, his true nature and agency. The book explores the question of the reality and mortality of a subject through a Lacanian prism, from the theorising of analytical subjectivity that starts with the Freudian Oedipal myth more than a century ago to the futurist aspiration to fabricate human beings according to some ideal model.

Current Research

Olfaction and Psychoanalysis

The clinical and cultural explorations of olfaction involve a historical study of medicine, language and philosophical thoughts. This research approaches the question of senses, particularly, the sense of smell from a psychoanalytic perspective. Has the place of the sense of smell and odours in culture changed from the ancient world to our contemporary times and where can we locate the olfaction in theories of psychoanalysis?

Emotions and Feelings in Persian Thought

What treatments of emotions and feelings do we find in the ancient Persian world? This research involves historical studies of ancient Iranian languages, literature and philosophical thoughts to locate the place of affects in the subjectivity.
