Dr. Fernando Castrillón - Psychoanalyst: 510-295-4711
Research, Publications & Presentations
Most of my research revolves around the question of subjectivity, its formation, dynamics, limits and possibilities. I primarily work with the texts of Lacan, Freud, Deleuze & Guattari, Foucault, Melanie Klein, Manual de Landa, Pierre Legendre, Paul Virilio, David Abrams, the Frankfurt School, Michelangelo Antonioni and John Zerzan.
I am currently writing a book on psychoanalysis in California that develops several interrelated lines of inquiry on the themes of the law, the father, the institution, "nature", the "body", anxiety, jouissance, technology/technica, design & architecture, acoustic genealogies, and revolution, as a means of deepening and complexifying the question of subjectivity.
