On Sublimation

On Sublimation

The Significance of Psychoanalysis for the Study of Religion

(p.18) 1 On Sublimation
Interstices of the Sublime

Clayton Crockett

Fordham University Press

This chapter deals with the general question of sublimation and its relevance for understanding religion. The sublime is clearly located within the subject and not within the object. This disorientation provoked by the process of sublime judgment signifies a discord at the heart of the self, and this process prefigures the complexity and disorientation within the self diagnosed by psychoanalysis.

Keywords:   sublimation, sublime, psychoanalysis, religion, self
