In the last few decades consciousness has become a major topic of interest for neurologists, psychologists, and a host of other professionals in various disciplines. Their concerted efforts to define consciousness led them mostly to the same impasse: the leap from the body to the mind, or to the particular link that makes the mind an attribute of consciousness. In 1895 Freud put together a project for a Psychology for the Neurologists. It comprised the elements of a theory of consciousness as a manifestation of the continuous homeostatic pursuit of stability; an aconscious condition. Although he made a distinction between the aconscious and the unconscious in many of his important works, he did not clearly define the ways in which the two could co-exist in a unified theory.

In Consciousness and the Aconscious in Psychoanalytic Theory, Ahmed Fayek summarizes current arguments and debates stemming from neurological and phenomenological perspectives. He presents the notion that consciousness needs to be considered a human phenomenon and not simply a manifestation of brain activity, which is an occurrence shared by all organisms. Using Freud’s theories as they relate to consciousness, Fayek places his own theory of the aconscious within the context of Freudian thought.

About the Author:

Ahmed Fayek, PhD, is a retired clinical psychologist as well as a retired training and supervising psychoanalyst.

Review:

In a careful study that analyzes the history of the multiple views of the unconscious, Ahmed Fayek’s Consciousness and the Aconscious in Psychoanalytic Theory demonstrates the importance of consciousness in psychoanalytic theory. It contains a careful reading of Freud’s writing, and is a particularly important contribution, making this work an excellent example of psychoanalytic scholarship. (Joseph Reppen, PhD, ABPP, Psychoanalytic Association of New York)

Ahmed Fayek, an expert on Freud and psychoanalytic theory, has given us a clear and lucid book on the nature of consciousness. What makes it unique is his insightful treatment of Freud’s original thinking about the nature of consciousness, and his examination of Freud’s brilliant but largely forgotten Project for a Scientific Psychology. Definitely a recommended read. (Allan Leslie Combs, PhD, CIIS Center for Consciousness Studies)
