“Father, Don’t You See I’m Burning?” Žižek, Psychoanalysis, and the Apocalypse
This chapter responds to Žižek’s insightful and detailed critical analysis of the current neurobiological and neuro-psychoanalytic redefinition of the unconscious. In doing so, it examines and reproaches Žižek’s own position as developed in his The Parallax View, where he recognises and credits the importance of neuroscientific contributions to the understanding of the psyche and its wounds. However, despite this crediting, he nonetheless remain doubtful that these new elaborations can substitute for the Freudian and Lacanian definitions of traumas.
