Philosophy and Psychoanalysis
Jorge Hernando Pacheco Gómez
Philosophy and Paranoia of Genius: Un-veiled of Reality?
An Interpretation of some Approaches from Philosophical Work of Sigmund Freud and Jacques Lacan
A large number of philosophers have said in their writings and life examples that philosophy has to be seen as an activity, as a way of life and thinking, outside of common conventions. She observes what others observe, but sees in the observed something deeper and different from what others see. What is the nature or origin of this philosophical knowledge that is different from the rest of knowledge? If we think of philosophy as an activity, as a way of life, then we can understand that the nature of this knowledge is not only in the reflections on the world, but also in a particular mode of behavior. In this paper I intend to approach the activity of the philosopher, to expose and understand in the key psychoanalytic terms what is proper to philosophy, to her activity and her lifestyle.
