This is the second part of a three part series exploring the work of Slovenain philosopher Slavoj Zizek and his work on Christology. This is not however simply some close up look at some of his ideas, but also a chance to understand more about the theoretical insights of psychoanalytic theory and how I integrate them into pyrotheology.
In this seminar I will build on the insights of the previous session, where we outlined the concepts of Instinct, Drive, Desire, Prohibition, Pleasure, and Enjoyment. I’ll look at how we can, theoretically at least, find a way beyond a type of suffering unique to self-consciousness, a suffering that is responsible for so much destruction in the personal and political dimensions of life.
