Political struggle seems to break out every time psychoanalysis tries to tackle the question of breathing. Freud, Ferenczi, and Otto Rank fought amongst themselves around the question of birth trauma and the origins of anxiety (which is at the core of breathing issues) which led to the invention of the death drive, arguably the most divisive concept in psychoanalysis. Lacan and Reik were two analysts who both spoke about breathing, and both were the only two Freudians to be expelled from the International Psychoanalytic Association. In this talk we will look at what the psychoanalysis of breathing—in newborn infants, asthmatic children, autistic objects, and adult panic attacks—can tell us about this contentious ground.

Learning Objectives:

At the end of the session participants will be able to:

• Understand the history of breathing as a theoretical and clinical concept.
• Think about the politics of breathing in psychoanalysis and the contemporary clinical moment.
• Think about the relevance of breathing for thinking about anxiety and sexual conflicts.
