Donald and Rudy join Daniel Tutt for a discussion on the history and present of psychoanalysis and its relationship to Marxism. We discuss whether psychoanalysis can be considered a science and how psychoanalysts produce knowledge before explaining the libidinal economy and possible psychoanalytic interventions in the sphere of exchange. We also discuss Wilhelm Reich: his claim to being the first Marxist psychoanalytic as well as his writings on fascism and its relationship to the family. We continue with family abolition, psychoanalysis in the New Left, and Christopher Lasch's project in the context of psychoanalysis, and finish with the relevance of Ernst Bloch and utopia in Marxist propaganda today.
