Returning to this unholy union, Benjamin Y. Fong reconstructs the psychoanalytic “foundation stone” of severe thought within the attempt to once more imagine jointly the potential for psychic and social transformation.

Drawing at the paintings of Hans Loewald and Jacques Lacan, Fong complicates the recognized antagonism among Eros and the dying force, which undergirds the Freudian techniques as soon as appropriated through the severe theorists, in connection with a 3rd time period: the woefully undertheorized force to mastery. Rejuvenating Freudian metapsychology during the lens of this pivotal idea, he then offers clean standpoint on Theodor Adorno, Max Horkheimer, and Herbert Marcuse’s understandings of psychic lifestyles below the impact of recent cultural and technological switch. the result's a unique imaginative and prescient of severe idea that rearticulates the character of subjection in past due capitalism and rejuvenates an previous undertaking of resistance.
