Psychoanalysis has acknowledged the foolishness of any so-called "turn to
religion," reminding us that the religious has always been in the air.
Rather than defensively insist on religion?s spectrality, psychoanalysis
breaks with modernity?s political anxiety in exposing the material truth of
what is at stake: belief as such. To what extent does the well-trodden
intersection of psychoanalysis and religion, the unconscious and faith,
demand a radical break from the politics of resignation that has of late
dominated our political landscape?
