Who are we? 

The Psychoanalysis Society is open to anyone with an interest in Psychoanalysis. In our events, we seek to explore how such notions as the unconscious can aid our understanding of clinical, political, and psychosocial phenomena. We are also interested in interdisciplinary dialogues between psychoanalysis and philosophy, literature, politics, and film. We host open forums every Tuesday, and a reading group each Sunday. A small selection of our past open forums include: Lacan With Antigone; What’s So Funny About The Phallus?; ‘Bion’ The Pleasure Principle; Intro To Schizoanalysis; Freud, Neurology, And Psychoanalysis; and Which Hegel?.

Whether you are an expert in the field of Psychoanalysis wanting to find likeminded people, or just want to learn something new, all are welcome in the Psychoanalysis Society! 

When do we meet?
