Ancient Egypt played an important but perhaps understated role in early Theosophy, with frequent references to Egyptian Cabala in Helena Petrovna Blavatsky and George Henry Felt’s early papers.

Conference Paper
Full-text available
In this paper I'm interested in considering how we configure the notion of a group or a social body after a pandemic where groups have been a source of fear (due to the risk of illness) or illegality (due to limitations on social interaction). I will suggest that the difficulties for many led to a sense of helplessness. However I will attempt to ar...

Karl Jaspers' simultaneous and common criticism of the sociology, of the psychology and of the anthropology appears, in front of the horizon of the so constituted fundamental positioning of this philosophy, as particularly relevant, in which he can focus, as in "typical modern" sciences (Jaspers, 1932, 138) the sociology through the Marxism, the ps...

The mirror is a very widespread tool in human life. It works as an optical device that recreates the image of an object placed in front of it.

At a certain...

The sense of self has always been a topic of high interest in both psychoanalysis and most recently in neuroscience. Nowadays, there is an agreement in psychoanalysis that the self emerges from the relationship with the other (e.g., the caregiver) in terms of his/her capacity to attune, regulate, and synchronize with the emergent self of the infant...

After almost finishing a book of the state of our understanding of human behaviour, and from teaching a course on parts of this as well, I arrive at the following ideas.

From a phenomenological perspective, the urban space that is physically destroyed, rebuilt or transformed, and simultaneously lived, felt and perceived, exhibits the quality of ‘breccia’ by forming complex and multi-layered relational systems, in which visible and hidden layers can be described as the psychoanalysis of urban space. The aim of the s...

In this article, I propose an original re-interpretation of the encounter between deconstruction and psychoanalysis as it is described by Jacques Derrida in his early essay "Freud and the scene of writing" (1966).
