Dealing with the matter of truth

Truth has always been a central philosophical category, occupying different fields of knowledge and practice. In the current moment of fake news and alternative facts, it is mandatory to revisit the various meanings of truth. Departing from various approaches to psychoanalytic theory and practice, the authors gathered in this book offer critical reflections and insights about truth and its effects. In articulations of psychoanalysis with (for instance) philosophy, ethics, and politics, the reader will find discussions about issues such as knowledge, love, and clinical practice, all marked by the matter of truth.

Onze tijd van “post-truth politics”, met Trump als meest gekende exponent, heeft echter gesignaleerd dat we uiteindelijk geen emancipatie kunnen bereiken zonder het concept “waarheid” aan boord te houden. We zullen moeten leven met het besef dat waarheid intrinsiek ambigu en faalbaar is, maar dat zonder waarheid geen enkele horizon tot verandering kan worden bewerkstelligd. Dit boek wil dan ook het concept van “waarheid” opnieuw ondervragen vanuit psychoanalytisch perspectief, waarbij het realiteitsprincipe een complexe relatie bezit met de notie van fantasie binnen onze psyche en samenleving. - Aktief, 2023, nummer 4
