Books Info:

The Capitalist Unconscious free pdf The book discusses the importance of Marx's critique of political economy in Lacan's attempt to rethink the political and philosophical legacy of Freudian psychoanalysis. By situating Marx in the broader context of Lacan's teaching it highlights the ongoing importance of the capacity of psychoanalysis to reaffirm a dialectical and materialist thinking in philosophy and beyond. Lacan presents an unorthodox image of Marx, linking his critique of capitalism with the fundamental concepts of psychoanalysis, the Freudian "labour theory of the unconscious" and emancipatory politics, showing that psychoanalysis, structuralism and critique of political economy participate in the same movement of thought, which revolutionized the human sciences and whose relevance remains intact even today.
