Event description

Description

Transparency is deemed central to today’s democratic systems, institutions and services. Our insistence on open government, freedom of information and the public’s right to know privileges not only the visibility of information but also the visibility of the self. How might psychoanalytic practitioners think about and respond to the ever-increasing demand for transparency in the consulting room? This paper draws on the ideas of Derrida, Laplanche and Glissant to argue for what has been called ‘the right to opacity,’ suggesting that psychoanalysts are particularly well-placed to offer a critical perspective on today’s culture of surveillance.
