Ruptures and Utopia in Present Societies: Psychoanalytic Perspectives and Social Critique | Summer / Short course | Humanities & Culture | Online/Distance | 13 days | International Psychoanalytic University Berlin | Germany

However, these fractures are not only of destructive nature, but offer a utopian potential as well.
What exactly divides modern societies?
What is the function of these cracks?
What utopian potential do they foster?
