>The Concept of the Unconscious in Nineteenth-Century German Thought
>
>Thursday, 21 September - Friday, 22 September 2006
>
>Venue: Stewart House/Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU

>(IGRS, University of London)
>
>This conference will examine the pre-history of 
>the psychoanalytic concept of the unconscious in 
>nineteenth-century German thought. Prior to its 
>more or less 'official' scientific theorisation 
>by Freud, the concept of the unconscious already 
>possessed a detailed and complex genealogy in 
>nineteenth-century German thought, beginning 
>with the aftermath of Kant's critical philosophy 
>in German idealism and Naturphilosophie 
>(philosophy of nature), and extending into the 
>discourses of Romanticism and beyond. The 
>English-speaking world remains comparatively 
>unaware of this heritage and its importance for 
>the ways in which the concept is used in 
>contemporary academic discourses. Coinciding 
>with the 150th anniversary of Freud's birth, 
>this conference brings together experts from 
>Great Britain and Germany to address the various 
>theorisations, representations and 
>transformations undergone by the 'unconscious in 
>nineteenth-century German thought'.
