Title: Ethics and Sublimation
Author(s): VERGOTE, Antoine
Journal: Ethical Perspectives
Volume: 5 Issue: 3 Date: October 1998
In this paper I will alternate between the position of a psychoanalyst who reflects on psychoanalysis as a moral philosopher, and that of a psychoanalyst who views moral concepts from an analyst’s point of view. By psychoanalysis I mean the clinical practice and observations deriving from Freud’s ideas and theoretical constructions, as well as the necessary theoretical underpinnings on which it rests.
