Philosophie und Psychologie im Dialog -
Research, new theories and treatment have led to diverse concepts of the unconscious within psychoanalysis. The current metapsychology tries to integrate the approaches with the help of neuro- and cognitive scientific findings and disciplines like semiotics and philosophy of the soul. Matthias Kettner and Wolfgang Mertens unravel the discussion and reach a high level of reflection in the critical dialogue between psychoanylsis and philosophy that holds many impulses for the metapsychology of the 21st century. Semiotics turns out to be a helpful structure for parts of the psychoanalytic scientific theories, especially for the practice of interpreting the unconscious.
