Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is the companion to Difference and Disavowal: The Trauma of Eros (Stanford University Press, 2000), which dealt with the psychoanalytic clinical problem of resistance to interpretation. The key to this resistance is the unconscious registration and repudiation (disavowal) of the reality of difference. The surprising generality of this resistance intersects with Nietzsche's, Heidegger's, and Derrida's understanding of how and why difference is in general the “unthought of metaphysics.” All three see metaphysics engaged with a “registration and repudiation of difference,” and all three rethink interpretation in relation to this question. The synthesis of these theories of interpretation and difference provides the philosophical foundations for a new thinking of how interpretation functions, and is a critical intersection of deconstruction and psychoanalysis.

Book News Annotation:

In his 2000 Difference and Disavowal: The Trauma of Eros, Bass, a psychoanalyst practicing in New York City, presented a clinical perspective on resistance to the interpretation of psychoanalysis as therapy. Here he uses that work as a foundation to explore the philosophical issues involved in such resistance. Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Derrida are the pivots of his account. He does not provide an index.

Synopsis:

This book synthesizes Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Derrida on interpretation and difference in order to provide a new theory of how interpretation functions in psychoanalysis.

Synopsis:

“This work opens up and defines an area of research that until now has been only present latently. Bass situates Freud and psychoanalytic interpretation in proximity to Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Derrida. The result is original and groundbreaking and should be of interest to a wide swath of readers-philosophers, critical theorists of all disciplines, and thoughtful psychoanalysts.” —Donald Moss, M.D., New York University Psychoanalytic Institute
