Jouissance as Ananda

Full Product Description

Jouissance as Ananda seeks to resolve the often-problematic Western concept of the ego by proposing a cross-cultural theory of consciousness that draws on Indian philosophy. Author Ashmita Khasnabish begins with a critique of Western psychoanalysis, engaging French feminist philosopher Luce Irigaray's concept of jouissance to highlight shortcomings in the work of Freud and Lacan. Khasnabish then seeks to expand the idea of jouissance by comparing it with the Indian concept of ananda. The highly theoretical analysis of philosophical and psychoanalytic terms is combined with an examination of colonial and postcolonial literature. A thoughtful and immensely creative approach to psychoanalytic theory, Jouissance as Ananda will be of interest to readers from a variety of cultures and disciplines.

Jouissance as Ananda by Ashmita Khasnabish was published by Lexington Books in April 2006. The ISBN for Jouissance as Ananda is 9780739116739.
