Her recent publications include ‘The New Wounded: From Neurosis to Brain Damage’ (2007) and ‘Self and Emotional Life: Merging Philosophy, Psychoanalysis and Neuroscience’ (with Adrian Johnston, 2010).

Éric Laurent is a psychoanalyst and former president of the World Association of Psychoanalysis. Trained by Jacques Lacan in the 1970s, Éric Laurent was a member of the directorate of the École freudienne de Paris at the time of the School’s dissolution in 1980 and has been a member of the École de la Cause freudienne since its inception.
