This conference* takes the Freudian project into new grounds of clinical practice and theoretical formulations and contributes to a profound psychoanalytic understanding of sexuality. The object of psychoanalysis is psychosexuality, which is not, in the final analysis, determined by having a male or a female body, but by the unconscious phantasies that are reached après coup through tracing the nuanced interplay of identifications as they are projected, enacted and experienced in the transference and the countertransference in the analytic encounter."

Gregorio Kohon, Brian O´Neill, Rosine Jozef Perelberg and Jed Sekoff

Guys & Dolls: Intimacy in a Technological Age

What is it that makes a doll the ideal woman in a man’s eyes? Why would a man prefer a doll to a real woman? The Pygmalion myth, in which a man creates the woman of his dreams, indicates that the appeal of a man-made woman reaches far back in time.

We are living in an age of unprecedented technological advances. These changes are influencing what it means to be human and how we relate to each other and to inanimate objects. The subculture of men whose desire is directed at high-end love dolls is discussed. Jack, who called himself an "iDollator," was living happily with his doll, Maya for 2 years. Eventually, he sought therapy.

This lecture discusses how both he and Dr. Knafo changed in the process. It also raises questions regarding the future of relational life.

Danielle Knafo, Ph.D. is a professor in the clinical psychology doctoral program at Long Island University and a supervisor and faculty member at NYU’s Postdoctoral Program in Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis. She has written eight books and dozens of articles and lectured internationally on the topics of psychoanalysis, creativity, gender, trauma, psychosis, and technology. Her most recent books are Dancing with the Unconscious: The Art of Psychoanalysis and the Psychoanalysis of Art and The Age of Perversion: Desire and Technology in Psychoanalysis and Culture.

Diskussion: Katrin Becker

Ausgehend von Monique Wittigs Vorschlag, die Markierung des Geschlechts verschwinden zu lassen, sowie von den letzten gesellschaftlichen Entwicklungen rund um das „dritte Geschlecht“ und um das Gender-Sternchen, möchte ich das wiederholte Argument der Entnaturalisierung diskutieren und zeigen, inwiefern bestimmte Vorschläge selber eine Naturalisierung praktizieren mögen/müssen, da wo sie sich jedoch als überholt erklärt und widerlegt angibt. Das Wort „natürlich“ trägt in diesem Felde Verwirrungen mit sich, die versucht werden sollen zu deklinieren. Diese andere Naturalisierung zeigt sich u.a. als überbieterische Strategie gegenüber den existierenden Normen (jene, die entnaturalisiert werden sollten), als unhinterfragte Spaltung zwischen einem radikalen Konstruktivismus und einer evidenzbasierten positivistischen Wissenschaft – oder ggbf. als Nähe zum Transhumanismus. Freuds Ansatz zur Rätsel des Geschlechterunterschieds (und nicht zum essentializierten Unterschied) mag hingegen eine heuristische Dimension aufrechterhalten.
