Each individual’s experience is multifaceted and reflects a transgenerational history that has profound influence on future generations that underpins themselves and their families, involving both the individual and the social unconscious. If we think of poverty and how its after-effects are felt by future generations, distant memories of loss, trauma, and anxiety over survival continue to reside in the unconscious. This early shadow falls on future generations. So political turmoil is also a crisis of human relationships as well as economic and social convulsion.

In Analysis provides a unique venue for the advancement of science in psychoanalysis and contemporary psychodynamic approaches, and in the spirit of cross-fertilization, for the advancement of different scientific domains through contributions of psychoanalysis.
Pr Martin Debbané, University of Geneva
In Analysis is the place for a theoretical, critical and scientific debate that we really need in the French speaking scientific community as well as across clinical practitioners. It is a most welcome project in the field of psychoanalysis, psychotherapy and humanities providing a cutting-edge and transdisciplinary approach to rethink our theories and methodologies.
Pr Denise Medico, Université du Québéc à Montréal
The ambition of In Analysis to bring science and psychoanalysis in closer connection can be seen in its output to date in promoting the importance of empiricism as well as the more speculative and philosophical sciences as foundational to its psychoanalytic research and productivity. Its aim of making the unconscious relevant to contemporary science and to the contemporary world is not only rooted in the passion of discovery, so often attributed to scientists, but to in studies of human subjectivity.
