John Protevi reviews Malabou/Johnston book

Here. Malabou’s section is a good primer on her reading of psychoanalysis, though it’s unclear on the crucial question of the self–in the beginning of her piece, she takes up Spinoza; near the end it’s Metzinger, which are two very different views. Overall, she argues, as Protevi notes, that psychoanalysis cannot account for what she calls the “new wounded” (her paradigm case is Alzheimers), while Johnston’s section, as one might expect, argues for psychoanalysis’s continuing relevance.
