Abstract

Linda Brakel tackles a range of fascinating and puzzling phenomena that lie at the border between psychoanalysis and philosophy of mind, including unconscious knowing, vagueness, agency, the placebo effect, and even explanation itself. Unique in its use of tools and concepts from both philosophy and psychoanalysis, this resource demonstrates how this interdisciplinary approach can provide some unique solutions to some impenetrable problems.
