Perversion: Ideas in Psychoanalysis
Claire Pajaczkowska (au)
While Freud intended the concept of ‘perversion’ to be free from the moral judgment that the word carries, the relationship of perversion to hostility & sexuality makes it a troubling concept. Is perversion an emotion? Is it a form of thinking or belief? Is it a sexual act? Described as an acting out of unconscious fantasy, perversion combines feelings of revenge, triumph & control as a defense against experiencing trauma & helplessness. The concept of perversion is used to understand the unconscious dynamics of addiction, sexual abuse, delinquency, murder, sexual assault & even burglary. The concepts of narcissism, fetishism, voyeurism & sado-masochism are also useful as tools to analyze our culture, particularly in relation to film.
