Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Denial is an important concept in psychoanalysis. It is often thought of as a defensive reaction against that which emerges from the unconscious and threatens the symbolic structure that legislates on consciousness. However, denial can be conceived as a complex operation that obeys not only one, but multiple symbolic territories. A cross-reading allows conjecturing that denial can be thought of not only as a condition for the emergence of the repressed, but also as a starting point for the production of subjectivity.
