Iberian Neuropsychoanalysis Group
The Iberian Neuropsychoanalysis Group (INPAG) exists in both Portugal and Spain as the first research group that is truly connected to the academic world and to university requirements of scientific excellence. Our functional operation center is located at the University of Porto (Institute of Philosophy), but in essence we have no physical boundaries. The Group’s name simply refers, for the purpose of holding meetings, to the natural geographic regional interest of scholars and specialists who work in Portugal or Spain, but we sincerely encourage professionals from other countries to join us. In fact, we are already an interdisciplinary transcontinental team and look forward to growing in numbers with more and more philosophers, psychologists, psychiatrists, psychoanalysts, neuroscientists, biologists, pharmacologists and others from different scientific and/or professional backgrounds. We must never forget the indisputable fact that psychoanalysis emerged from a myriad of disciplines, and Freud himself had a multidisciplinary education. The Iberian Neuropsychoanalysis Group therefore has the function of scrutinizing Freud’s metapsychological system, as well as the post-Freudian psychoanalytic doctrines and fundamental theses that have been re-emerging among laboratorial studies and somehow continuously re-restructuring neuropsychoanalysis itself through a diversity of perspectives. We desire to understand what really remains for each lineage of thought from the neuropsychoanalytic postulations, namely considering the processes involved in the conceptualization of ‘psychopathology’, ‘symptom’ and ‘cure’, in both its Epistemo-Onto-Philosophical implications for the ‘mind-brain problem’, as well as in the general context of mental health and therapeutic-oriented processes. For more information please contact Group’s Coordinator. You are very welcome to join us.
