Beyond the Pleasure Principle
Kistner plans to investigate the psychoanalytic theorisations of anxiety, shock, and trauma, focusing on Freud’s essay ‘Beyond the Pleasure Principle’ (1919-1920). She will set about to fathom the ‘explanatory gap’ opening up as Freud instates the psychophysicalism articulated in the ‘Project of a Scientific Psychology’ ( 1950) for the third formulation of his drive theory.
