Subject: HAB: Habermas and Psychoanalysis
Date: Tue, 25 Apr 2000 11:31:30 -0400 (Eastern Daylight Time)



I would appreciate any references to Habermas and psychoanalysis that anyone 
might be able to recommend.

Thus far I'm running with this:

Benjamin, The Shadow of the Other & The Bonds of Love (indirectly related)
Bernstein, Recovering Ethical Life (chapter 3)
Dews, The Limits of Disenchantment (mixed chapters)
Dews, "Communicative Paradigms and the Question of Subjectivity: Habermas, Mead 
and Lacan" in Habermas: A Critical Reader
Dews, "The Truth of the Subject: Language, Validity, and Transcendence in Lacan 
and Habermas" in Deconstructive Subjectivities
Grunbaum, The Foundations of Psychoanalysis (chapters 1 & 2)
Habermas, Knowledge and Human Interests
Habermas, Postscript to Knowledge and Human Interests
Habermas, On the Logic of the Social Sciences
Honneth, The Struggle for Recognition (chapter 5)
McCarthy, The Critical Theory of Jurgen Habermas
Nagele, Reading After Freud (chapter 3)
Wellmer, "Communications and Emancipation" in On Critical Theory
Whitebook, "The Problem of Nature in Habermas" Telos 40
Whitebook, "Reason and Happiness" in Habermas and Modernity
Whitebook, Perversion and Utopia
Zizek, The Metastates of Enjoyment (chapter 1)

I'm kind of surprised that so little attention has been given to Habermas's 
appropriation of psychoanalysis - esp. since he still maintains (in TCA, PDM 
and A&S) that he abides by his reading of Freud. So far, Whitebook has the most 
sustained reading of Habermas with and against Freud.  Dews has turned his 
focus more on reading Habermas with Lacan.  Most of the other references are 
either primary texts or summaries of what has already been said.

mutatis mutandis,
ken
