Libido: Ideas in Psychoanalysis
Roger Kennedy (au)
How relevant is the Freudian concept of libido in contemporary psychoanalytic thought? Though libido as an active concept has gone out of favor, Kennedy argues for its reinstatement at the heart of Freudís legacy -- with a number of crucial modifications. In particular, libido as a tool for understanding the role of drives needs to be placed into the context of both object relations & the nature of the human subject. Kennedy also looks at the incorporation of libido into Freudís later concept of Eros, examining its links to ancient thought & philosophy, & charting the shifts in theory as Freud swung from an investigation of the minutiae of his patientsí sexual lives to the consideration of the fundamental place of life & death in the human condition.
