About this Unit
Depth Psychology is designed to provide an introduction to Depth Psychology, its historical and intellectual context and to show how it relates to contemporary psychology. The unit will focus on the major theories, issues and questions that go to constitute the psychoanalytic traditions. Theoretical issues in psychology have been gradually making a "comeback", partly as a result of the postmodernist focus on identity and ideology, and its questioning of the adequacy of "traditional empiricism". As a result contemporary psychology is currently experiencing a number of "revolutions" (e.g., what is consciousness, do dreams matter, emotional wellbeing, renewed cognitive, meaning).
