This book argues that psychoanalysis has a unique role to play in the climate change debate through its placing emphasis on the unconscious dimensions of our mental and social lives. Exploring contributions from Freudian, Kleinian, Object Relations, Self Psychology, Jungian, and Lacanian traditions, the book discusses how psychoanalysis can help to unmask the anxieties, deficits, conflicts, phantasies and defences crucial in understanding the human dimension of the ecological crisis. Yet despite being essential to studying environmentalism and its discontents, psychoanalysis still remains largely a 'psychology without ecology.' The philosophy of Deleuze and Guattari, combined with new developments in the sciences of complexity, help us to build upon the best of these perspectives, providing a framework able to integrate Guattari's 'three ecologies' of mind, nature and society. This book thus constitutes a timely attempt to contribute towards a critical dialogue between psychoanalysis and ecology. Further topics of discussion include: ecopsychology and the greening of psychotherapy our ambivalent relationship to nature and the non-human complexity theory in psychoanalysis and ecology defence mechanisms against eco-anxiety and eco-grief Deleuze|Guattari and the three ecologies becoming-animal in horror and eco-apocalypse in science fiction films nonlinear ecopsychoanalysis. In our era of anxiety, denial, paranoia, apathy, guilt, hope, and despair in the face of climate change, this book offers a fresh and insightful psychoanalytic perspective on the ecological crisis. As such this book will be of great interest to all those in the fields of psychoanalysis, psychology, philosophy, and ecology, as well as all who are concerned with the global environmental challenges affecting our planet's future.

In this new monograph, Claire Hansen demonstrates how Shakespeare can be understood as a complex system, and how complexity theory can provide compelling and original readings of Shakespeare's plays. The book utilises complexity theory to illuminate early modern theatrical practice, Shakespeare pedagogy, and the phenomenon of the Shakespeare 'myth'. The monograph re-evaluates Shakespeare, his plays, early modern theatre, and modern classrooms as complex systems, illustrating how the lens of complexity offers an enlightening new perspective on diverse areas of Shakespeare scholarship. The book's interdisciplinary approach enriches our understanding of Shakespeare and lays the foundation for complexity theory in Shakespeare studies and the humanities more broadly.

An increasing number of scholars, students and practitioners of psychology are becoming intrigued by the ideas of Gilles Deleuze and of Felix Guattari. This book aims to be a critical introduction to these ideas, which have so much to offer psychology in terms of new directions as well as critique. Deleuze was one of the most prominent philosophers of the 20th century and a figure whose ideas are increasingly influential throughout the humanities and social sciences. His work, particularly his collaborations with psychoanalyst Guattari, focused on the articulation of a philosophy of difference. Rejecting mainstream continental philosophy just as much as the orthodox analytical metaphysics of the English-speaking world, Deleuze proposed a positive and passionate alternative, bursting at the seams with new concepts and new transformations. This book overviews the philosophical contribution of Deleuze including the project he developed with Guattari. It goes on to explore the application of these ideas in three major dimensions of psychology: its unit of analysis, its method and its applications to the clinic. Deleuze and Psychology will be of interest to students and scholars of psychology and those interested in continental philosophy, as well as psychological practitioners and therapists.

'"Vital signs" are, of course, the basic physiological measures of functioning which health practitioners use to assess the gravity of a patient's predicament. This anthology focuses not so much on our physical predicament, with so many of the Earth's systems severely stressed and beginning to fail - there are plenty of other places to read about this Instead we focus on our psychological predicament, as news of the situation slowly penetrates our defences and we struggle as individuals and as a society to find an adequate response. By "vital signs" we also mean signs that such a response is beginning to take shape: signs of hope, signs of healing.We feel that ecopsychology in Britain has a distinctive voice and unique contributions to make. In doing so, we hope to facilitate debate and dialogue within the field, in the hope that this will lead eventually to more developed theory and practice. Things are still at quite an early stage in the construction of ecopsychology as a discipline, and the articulation of relationships of compatibility or incompatibility between various approaches. It will take time for the field to reach maturity, to agree on terminology (or agree to use different terminologies), and to develop organisational forms. This is a familiar process for any new way of looking at things.At the same time as recognising this slow maturation, we are of course equally aware of the extraordinary urgency of the external situation which it is one of the missions of ecopsychologists to address. While there would in theory still be an important role for ecopsychology if we were not facing environmental meltdown - exploring the complex relationships between human and other-than-human, and the therapeutic value of bringing the two together - in practice ecopsychology has been completely shaped by a sense of catastrophic loss, of the irreversible destruction of complexity and the impending threat to the systems which sustain life on this planet.From this point of view, ecopsychology is part of a much larger movement seeking to develop awareness of climate change together with all the other developing ecological crises (pollution, over-consumption of resources, destruction of habitats, etc). What distinguishes ecopsychology from many of the other players in this larger movement, however - apart from the psychological focus itself - is a very widespread perception of human beings as just one element in the global ecosystem; and an agreement, both ethical and practical, that humanity cannot save itself by throwing other species out of the sledge. The ecosystem stands or falls as a whole, human, other-than-human, and more-than-human; and a failure to recognise this is itself a symptom of our culture's dissociation from its place in the larger whole, which is one of the causal factors leading to our current situation.Among people who have been working in this area for some time, there is a growing question: what if we fail? What if our society does not manage a transition to a carbon-free economy - and all of the other transformations of culture and practice which are required alongside this? In all probability time is getting extremely short; considerable damage to global ecosystems is already certain, and runaway "tipping point" effects are predicted by many scientists.Although awareness of this crisis is far greater than it was a decade ago, there is still little sign of a serious shift in public attitudes. Indeed in the UK, and elsewhere, ecological concerns have been eclipsed by the recent economic crisis with seemingly little recognition that of course ecological, social and economic crisis are completely interwoven. While the future can never be predicted with certainty, there is not much concrete basis for optimism. What then?'- From the Introduction

Im August 1992 wurde die Leiche von Chris McCandless im Eis von Alaska gefunden. Wer war dieser junge Mann, und was hatte ihn in die gottverlassene Wildnis getrieben? Jon Krakauer hat sein Leben erforscht, seine Reise in den Tod rekonstruiert und ein traurig-schönes Buch geschrieben über die Sehnsucht, die diesen Mann veranlasste, sämtliche Besitztümer und Errungenschaften der Zivilisation hinter sich zu lassen, um tief in die wilde und einsame Schönheit der Natur einzutauchen.– Verfilmt von Sean Penn mit Emile Hirsch.

Natura, soldi, lavoro, assistenza, cibo, energia e vita. Sono le sette cose che hanno costruito il nostro mondo e che daranno una forma al nostro futuro. Mettendo a profitto ciascuna di queste, l’economia moderna ha trasformato, governato e devastato la Terra. Dopo I padroni del cibo e Il valore delle cose, Raj Patel presenta insieme a Jason W. Moore un nuovo modo di analizzare le emergenze planetarie del nostro tempo. Gli studi più recenti sullo stato di salute del pianeta accompagnano la narrazione delle vicende del colonialismo, delle lotte indigene, delle rivolte degli schiavi. Come Jared Diamond in Armi, acciaio e malattie, Patel e Moore si lanciano in un viaggio straordinario nel tempo e nello spazio, alla ricerca di casi esemplari della capacità del capitalismo di piegare alla propria costante esigenza di profitto qualsiasi cosa, anche la vita stessa. È una storia che comincia con Cristoforo Colombo, primo grande esportatore del colonialismo e dell’economia del capitale, e arriva fino a oggi. Ripercorrerla significa scoprire una verità inquietante: le più grandi crisi della politica e dell’economia mondiali hanno offerto ogni volta nuove strategie per sfruttare in modo sempre più insidioso le risorse disponibili, facendo del mondo l’arena del mercato capitalista. Una critica appassionante delle leggi del capitale, una visione originale per un mondo sostenibile, che si legge come una grande storia.

Früher gab es einen Marktplatz und einen Markttag – mittlerweile haben die Läden immer länger geöffnet, und der Kapitalismus kolonialisiert die letzte Pore der Lebenswelt. In einer von wachsender Ungleichheit geprägten Gegenwart setzen viele Linke ihre letzte Hoffnung in die sozialen Medien, eine Haltung, die César Rendueles als naiven »Cyberfetischismus« kritisiert. Mit einem Gespür für große historische Bögen und einem an Slavoj Žižek erinnernden Talent, aus popkulturellen Referenzen theoretische Funken zu schlagen, legt er dar, dass politischer Wandel nur möglich sein wird, wenn wir die »Soziophobie«, die Angst vor der Kooperation mit den anderen, überwinden. »Wenn viele gleichzeitig dasselbe machen«, so Rendueles, »heißt das noch lange nicht, dass sie es gemeinsam tun.«

In the last two years the German art scene has experienced a tremendous growth unlike anything since the early 1980s -- owing to a revitalized Berlin and an ever-expanding cultural diversity. German Open captures this energy by giving an overview of more than 30 of the best young artists working in Germany today. The artists documented represent the entire spectrum of visual art, from installation to painting to video, and their work can no longer be viewed as a matter of scattered individual gestures, but must be examined in a group context. Among the artists included here are Franz Ackerman, Kai Althoff, Simone Bohm, Coisma von Bonin, Matti Braun, Olafur Eliasson, Stefan Hoderlein, Stefan Kern, Michel Majerus, Tobias Rehberger, Daniel Richter, Heidi Specker, Johannes Wohnseifer, and Joseph Zehrer.

The Emergent Ego offers an approach to the psychoanalytic process based on the findings of the scientific revolution now in progress, breaking new ground by turning to the sciences of complexity for a new perspective on the nature of the evolutionary process. The author hypothesizes that adaptive change in the patient results from the coevolution of the therapeutic dyad in the analytic ecosystem. The application of complexity theory to the psychoanalytic process extends the power of psychoanalytic theory to account for the full range of events that characterize the therapeutic relationship.
