9780199599691: Neuropsychoanalysis in Practice: Brain, Self and Objects

Is the Ego nothing but our brain? Are our mental and psychological states nothing but neuronal states of our brain? Though Sigmund Freud rejected a neuroscientific foundation for psychoanalysis, recent knowledge in neuroscience has provided novel insights into the brain and its neuronal mechanisms. This has also shed light on how the brain itself contributes to the differentiation between neuronal and psychological states.

In Neuropsychoanalysis in Practice , Georg Northoff discusses the various neuronal mechanisms that may enable the transformation of neuronal into psychological states, looking at how these processes are altered in psychiatric disorders like depression and schizophrenia. He focuses specifically on how the brain is organized and how this organization enables the brain to differentiate between neuronal and psychodynamic states, that is, the brain and the psyche. This leads him to discuss not only empirical issues but also conceptual problems, for instance, the concept of the brain. Neuropsychoanalysis in Practice applies these concepts and mechanisms to explain the various symptoms observed in psychiatric disorders such as depression and schizophrenia. In addition to the empirical issues, he also discusses various conceptual and methodological issues that are relevant in linking neuroscience and psychoanalysis, developing a novel transdisciplinary framework for linking neuroscience, psychoanalysis and philosophy.

This highly original new book will help foster new dialogues between neuroscience, psychoanalysis, and philosophy, and will be fascinating reading for anyone in these disciplines.

About the Author:


Georg Northoff is a neuroscientist, psychiatrists and philosopher holding degrees in all three fields. Being an endowed chair at the University of Ottawa Institute of Mental Health Research/Canada, he is well known and internationally recognized as one of the leading proponents of interdisciplinary work at the intersection between neuroscience, psychiatry and philosophy. His empirical work focuses on brain imaging of the self while his more theoretical work aims to develop the disciplines of neuropsychoanalysis and neurophilosophy. He published several academic books and papers in the leading neuroscientific, psychiatric and philosophical journals. His most recent book The search for the Ego. A neurophilosophical mystery novel (Random House Germany) crosses the academic boundaries by addressing a wider audience.

Review:


"Northoff's book makes an impressive contribution to neuropsychoanalysis in clearly demonstrating the impact -- as well as tackling the problems -- of such a transdisciplinary methodology for investigating and integrating brain and psyche. The focus on neural predisposition and its thoughtful development within a truly transdisciplinary framework is an exciting and promising approach and provides solid grounds for further inter- and transdisciplinary dialogue, showing that neuropsychoanalysis has grown out of its infancy." -- Kerrin A. Jacobs, Metapsychology Online Reviews
