The aim of Freudian Unconscious and Cognitive Neuroscience is to create a conception of the Freudian things around the unconscious that takes seriously both the clinical data gathered in the scope of psychoanalytic clinical practice during the past 110 years, and the empirical and theoretical achievements of cognitive science and evolutionary theory. Tensions between the psychoanalytic and other views give a hint that the task is anything but easy.

Reviews and Endorsements

'Vesa Talvitie's sophisticated, yet accessible, analysis of the relationship between the Freudian unconscious and cognitive neuroscience should be required reading for both doctrinaire Freudians and those psychologists who are all too eager to consign the Freudian project to the dustbin of history. His philosophical astuteness, impressive grasp of the relevant literatures, and willingness to engage creatively with both psychoanalysts' and cognitivists' thinking make this indispensable reading for anyone seriously interested in understanding the architecture of the human mind and the place of psychoanalysis on the contemporary intellectual landscape.'
- David Livingstone Smith, PhD, author of Approaching Psychoanalysis: An Introductory Course, Why We Lie: The Evolutionary Roots of Deception and The Unconscious Mind and The Most Dangerous Animal: Human Nature and the Origins of War
