Philosophy of the Unconscious

Interest in the philosophy of the unconscious was advanced by the arrival of modern philosophy but is generally attributed to the advent of psychoanalysis. While a systematic treatment of the unconscious was elaborated by Freud, Jung, and the postmodern interpretations of Lacan, philosophical speculation about the ontology of the unconscious was initiated by several German philosophers such as von Hartmann, Nietzsche, Schopenhauer, Schelling, Hegel, Fichte, Kant, Leibniz, and Boehme drawing on neo-Platonic sources that stand in relation to a tradition that dates back to antiquity. Yet despite these robust and divergent perspectives, psychoanalysis and philosophy have largely remained ambivalent rivals in their quest for understanding the unconscious mind. As psychoanalysis embraces philosophical inquiry, new vistas emerge for hermeneutic discourse, mutual understanding, and the reconceptualization of psychoanalytic doctrine.

Association for Philosophy of the Unconscious

APU is a professional organization that promotes interdisciplinary dialogue and theoretical advancement in the philosophy of the unconscious. Meetings are held once a year held in conjunction with the American Philosophical Association conference (Eastern Division) and discusses scholarly contributions submitted by members.
