The unconscious

Abstract only
Log-in for full text

In Chapter 7, I suggest that a Marxist conception of the unconscious can offer new insights into racial dynamics about class exploitation. I ask: How did the Cold War shape the concept of the unconscious, so that Marxist ideology and New Left psychoanalytic theory were kept at odds? I insert Soviet Marxism into conversations regarding the epistemology of psychoanalysis. I put Jean Laplanche’s psychoanalytic theory in dialogue not only with queer theory but also with a socialist film made in the Soviet Union about Romanian Roma, The Fiddlers.
