Anthropology and Psychoanalysis: An Encounter through Culture

By Suzette Heald; Ariane Deluz | Go to book overview

to the incest taboo and lies at the very foundations of sexuality—heteronomous desire—and the symbolic separation of the generations through death. The collectivity or grouping of subjects from which sexual and generational differences derive is therefore something without which no society could survive or perpetuate itself. If, then, anthropology broadly stresses that societies are determined by ideas, economic relationships and parental interdependences, the task of ethnopsychoanalysis is to show that, within these constraints, societies are based in the final analysis on an absence, which indeed destroys any inter-subjectivity, each culture handling this in its own way.
