Abjection and Abandonment : Melancholy in Philosophy and Art

"Since the inception of philosophy, the question of melancholy in intimately connected with creativity. Thus, Aristode could say that creative people - poets and philosophers - are melancholic people. In contemporary discourses, the question of melancholy has once again acquired its decisive importance. No longer tied to the old conception of the genius, and no longer seen as reducible to a psycho-pathological disorder, melancholy is now seen as the fundamental attunement between us and the world. To think again of this fascinating question of melancholy in the light of contemporary thought is the task that this edited volume undertakes. The contributions are trans-disciplinary in nature, drawing on different disciplines like Psychoanalysis, Cultural Theory, Medical Studies, Sociological Studies and Aesthetic theories."
