From Ancient Greece to Psychoanalytic Engagement

By Éléonore Pardo, Kyveli Vogiatzoglou

This article approaches of the concept of otherness (heteron) through a reading of the politics, the tragedy and the philosophy of ancient Greece. It essentially attempts an understanding of the legacy of the Greek thought in psychoanalysis and the reasons why the Greek culture, this other culture, is still a resort to think about our modernity. This was also the question posed during the international conference “The Greek origins of Psychoanalysis”, which took place in Athens on 23rd - 25th October 2009. The working papers presented at the conference are included in this publication.
