Research

The research at SFU Paris

SFU-Paris is committed to offer a complete academic education, integrating a research center specific to psychology. Professor Paul-Laurent Assoun joined us, in September 2019, as the Chairman of the Scientific Council and has been responsible for our research lab.

To understand the choice of projects selected, it is necessary to briefly present the general problematic of the research field which revolves around the BODY-SUBJECT-CULTURE trilogy.

Laboratory activities are based and developed in a form of doctoral seminars that allow to introduce to the methodology of research and problematization. These seminars, at the rate of one to two monthly sessions, welcome professors who wish to present their research and bring out projects, with a view of pooling research interests.

Currently, seminars are focused on the transhumanism thematic, a current which announces an anthropological revolution linked to the appearance of biotechnologies, prosthetic techniques, which we group around the idea of ​​ “augmented human”.

 

Why transhumanism?

 

— It is a representative ideological current, allowing us to identify the issues:

  • The psychoanalysis /medicine scientific connection
  • The current situation of psychotherapy regarding its care devices and the problem of remediation
  • The cultural impact of these changes for psychotherapeutic practice

Projects

CULTURE ISSUE, TRANSCULTURALITY AND GLOBALIZATION 

 

The project consists in presenting the contribution of the psychoanalytic concept of civilization and its discontent, introduced by Sigmund Freud, to understand Culture and its symptoms and to update it from the current context.

It aims to update this model presented in 1930 by the creator of psychoanalysis by confronting it with the phenomenon of globalization, of “the world-economy”.

Our goal is  to articulate this reflection, in particular, with the project emanating from the SFU-Berlin under the direction of Pr. David Becker relating to the experience by young students of social changes. The adolescents reaction to collective change, themselves at a mutating age of life, makes it possible to see the effects of these transformations on the emerging generation and the problematic of adolescence as revealing new modes of subjectivation.

 

Responsible : Pr. Paul-Laurent Assoun

THE TRANSHUMANISM CHALLENGED BY PSYCHOANALYSIS, MEDICINE AND THE SCIENCES OF CULTURE.

 

Been presenting as a multidisciplinary team –  clinical psychologists, social psychologists, anthropologists, doctors – the project aims to examine technological changes on the duality between the individual and the collective.

The thematic choice of this seminar is the question of transhumanism,a current which announces an anthropological revolution linked to the appearance of biotechnologies, prosthetic techniques, which we group around the idea of ​​ “augmented human”.

The project will be developed in conjunction with the Fondation of the House of Human Sciences (FMSH) and it’s project: “Transhumanism et posthumanism between realities and imagination” whose leaders are:

– Pr. Mara Magda Maftei – Bucarest (Romania), research professor at Chaire Éthique et Finance, Collège d’Études Mondiales,

– Pr. Jean-Gabriel Ganascia, Sorbonne University ans researcher professor at LIP6,

– David Doat (Catholic University of Lille) and Alberto Romele (Catholic University of Lille), MCF and 15 others associate researchers.

 

Responsible : Pr. Paul-Laurent Assoun
