Psychoanalyse morgen: aan gene zijde van 'het goede' en 'het geluk'

Abstract
Via Zeh’s ‘Corpus Delicti’ this articles characterizes our modern society as monopolized by a strive for a certain ideal that goes back to Aristotelian ethics, i.e. the ultimate ‘good’ or happiness. Based on a reading of De Kesel’s ‘Eros and Ethics’ and a short detour via Freud’s ‘Beyond the pleasure principle’ we argue that today the tendency to strive towards ‘something beyond pleasure’ is denied. Psychoanalysis, on the contrary, acknowledges the road beyond ‘good’ and ‘happiness’, against a society that increasingly lacks any regard for the enigma of human desire. The result is that the anxiety for this enigma shifts towards an anxiety for psychoanalysis. This ensures that psychoanalysis increasingly gets a place beyond the current discourse.
