Love in a time of loneliness : three essays on drives and desires by Paul Verhaeghe( )

22 editions published between 1998 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 1,160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What do we, any of us, all of us - really want? The perfect man; the perfect woman; the perfect relationship? And, if men and women want the same things, then why is the central meaning of their lives so elusive? Are the ecstasies and lusts of sex and desire compatible with the stability and domesticity required for relationships?" "It is these questions that occupy psychoanalyst Paul Verhaeghe in his best-selling book on the travails of human sex and desire. In Paul Verhaeghe's hands, personal and cultural desires and longings are infused with familiar triangulation points: the Simpsons, Monty Python and even South Park share a cultural landscape with Plato and the ancient Greek tragedians. Freud may have famously posed the question, 'What does woman want?', but Paul Verhaeghe extends it: Love In A Time Of Loneliness tackles the fundamentals of issues behind sex and desire. Love In A Time of Loneliness is a polemic whose very informality belies its serious intent. In three essays, Professor Verhaeghe leaves the ordinary paths of thinking and sets out to discover what drives us in sex and love."--BOOK JACKET
On being normal and other disorders : a manual for clinical psychodiagnostics by Paul Verhaeghe( )

25 editions published between 2004 and 2018 in English and held by 789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The central argument of On Being Normal and Other Disorders is that psychic identity is acquired through one's primary intersubjective relationships. Thus, the diagnosis of potential pathologies must also be founded on this matrix
What about me? : the struggle for identity in a market-based society by Paul Verhaeghe( Book )

28 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

According to current thinking, anyone who fails to succeed must have something wrong with them. The pressure to achieve and be happy is taking a heavy toll, resulting in a warped view of the self, disorientation, and despair. People are lonelier than ever before. Today & rsquo;s pay-for-performance mentality is turning institutions such as schools, universities, and hospitals into businesses, while individuals are being made to think of themselves as one-person enterprises. Love is increasingly hard to find, and we struggle to lead meaningful lives. In What about Me?, Paul Verhaeghe & rsquo;s main concern is how social change has led to this psychic crisis and altered the way we think about ourselves. He investigates the effects of thirty years & rsquo; acceptance of neo-liberalism, free-market forces, and privatisation, and the resulting relationship between our engineered society and individual identity. It turns out that who we are is, as always, determined by the context in which we live. From his clinical experience as a psychotherapist, Verhaeghe shows the profound impact that social change is having on mental health, even to the extent of affecting the nature of the disorders from which we suffer. But his book ends on a note of cautious optimism. We can once again become masters of our fate & mdash; if we accept the challenge
Does the woman exist? : from Freud's hysteric to Lacan's feminine by Paul Verhaeghe( Book )

25 editions published between 1987 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book describes how Freud attempted to chart hysteria, yet came to a standstill at the problem of woman and her desire, and of how Lacan continued along this road by creating new conceptual tools. The difficulties and upsets encountered by both men are examined. This lucid presentation of the dialectical process that carries Lacan through the evolution of Freud's thought offers profound insights into the place of the "feminine mystique" in our social fabric. Patiently and carefully, Verhaeghe applies the Lacanian grid to Freud's text and succeeds in explaining Lacan's formulations without merely recapitulating his theories. The reader is informed, along the way, not only of Lacan's take on Freudian ideas, but also of the array of interpretations emerging from other trends in post-Freudian literature, including feminist revisionism
Autoriteit by Paul Verhaeghe( Book )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This was the trenchant diagnosis by Paul Verhaeghe at the end of his acclaimed book about identity, What About Me? Now he returns to investigate another aspect of our lives under threat: authority. In Says Who?, Verhaeghe examines how authority functions and why we need it in order to develop healthy psyches and strong societies. Going against the laissez-faire ethics of a free-market age, he argues that rather than seeing authority as a source of oppression we should invest in developing it in the places that matter. Only by strengthening the power of horizontal groups within existing social structures, such as in education, the economy, and the political system, can we restore authority to its rightful place. Whether you are a parent or child, teacher or student, employer or employee, Says Who? provides the answers you need
Beyond gender : from subject to drive by Paul Verhaeghe( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume, Paul Verhaeghe's lectures on the development of psychoanalytic theory between Freud and Lacan are reproduced as a written work of astonishing versatility, which stands at the vanguard of Lacanian studies." "Beyond Gender examines Freud's discovery of the unconscious, and Lacan's elaboration of this discovery as a gap in the subject between what (s)he knows and the real driving forces in the psyche. The implications of this gap are manifold, and their impact on areas of study and practice from gender theory to obsessional neurosis, trauma, hysteria, and dream interpretation are profound."--BOOK JACKET
New studies of old villains : a radical reconsideration of the Oedipus complex by Paul Verhaeghe( Book )

4 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Freud's discovery of the Oedipus complex has had a tumultuous fate in the field of psychology in the United States. At first considered the kernel of psychoanalysis, it progressively lost its luster because of its patriarchal underpinnings. Freud's theory that the child represses his love for his mother for fear of incurring his father's wrath is now obsolete and replaced by various theories focused mainly on the mother-child relationship, where the burning question of the child's sexual development is conveniently set aside. In this revolutionary book Paul Verhaeghe explains why the Oedipus complex is not what it appears to be, revisiting the history of psychoanalysis to reveal connections with recent discoveries in attachment theory."--Jacket

Le délire néolibéral flexible, efficace et ... dérangé by Paul Verhaeghe( )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in French and Dutch and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Verhaeghe établit un lien entre le contexte néolibéral typiquement occidental, d'une part, et le grand nombre de troubles mentaux, d'autre part. Verhaeghe montre que le contexte néolibéral présente une incidence poussée et modelante sur notre identité, nos normes et valeurs. Les statistiques indiquent en effet qu'il n'y a pas seulement davantage de troubles mentaux qu'il y environ trente ans mais que par ailleurs, ces troubles sont traités d'une autre manière qu'autrefois. En comparaison avec la psychothérapie classique, l'approche actuelle n'est rien de plus que l'instauration d'une discipline (ne bouge pas et fais attention!) qui correspond parfaitement à l'actuelle peur de l'autre. Le fait que cette peur soit la conséquence du néolibéralisme a pour effet que la protestation collective ne prend que difficilement forme
Voorbij Oedipus? : twee psychoanalytische verhandelingen over het oedipuscomplex by Philippe van Haute( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in Dutch and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Kritische reflectie op de huidige betekenis en de draagwijdte van het freudiaanse oedipuscomplex
Intimiteit by Paul Verhaeghe( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in Dutch and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ben je een lichaam of heb je een lichaam? Volgens Paul Verhaeghe berust intimiteit in de eerste plaats op de relatie met jezelf en pas daarna op een relatie met anderen. De verhouding tot ons eigen lichaam legt niet alleen de basis voor intimiteit, maar ook voor onze mentale en lichamelijke gezondheid. Vandaag de dag wordt die verhouding helaas gekenmerkt door schaamte, veroorzaakt door de overtuiging dat we nooit mooi en gezond genoeg zijn.0In 'Intimiteit' laat Verhaeghe zien dat onze tijd dringend behoefte heeft aan een nieuwe vorm van zelfzorg. Een waarin we meer samenvallen met onszelf. Hij rekent af met de klassieke verdeling tussen lichaam en geest zodat we op een andere manier naar het zelf en de wereld kunnen kijken. Met zijn doordachte pleidooi voor intimiteit zet Paul Verhaeghe de lezer aan het denken over zichzelf en over de ander
Existe la mujer? : de la histérica de Freud a lo femenino en Lacan by Paul Verhaeghe( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in Spanish and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La mujer no existe es una de las mas difundidas paradojas de Lacan y ocupa un lugar central en su enseñanza. Este libro despliega las raices, el contenido y las consecuencias teoricas y practicas de esa formulacion condensada. Para ello recorre la exposicion de los conceptos vitales del psicoanalisis, rastrea en Freud sus sucesivas teorias de la histeria y perfila en Lacan la prolongacion del enfoque freudiano, en particular la nocion de fenomeno primario. El autor postula que la teoria desarrollada por Freud a lo largo de cuatro decadas dio los mismos giros y rodeos que el tratamiento de una paciente histerica, con una secuencia similar a la de los fenomenos psicologicos. Freud siguio las elaboraciones imaginarias de la histerica porque ese era el unico modo de ir mas alla del atolladero que plantea la histeria; Verhaeghe sostiene que ese ir mas alla solamente fue escuchado por Lacan. Con un discurso analitico de notable claridad y perspicacia, el autor da cuenta de las vicisitudes de la elusiva histeria, afeccion que, lejos de formar parte de una galeria de museo, demuestra su actualidad en el desafio que aun hoy constituye para el psicoanalisis
