Psyche. XXX, 1976: Psychoanalysis and Social Contradictions. Klaus Horn. Pp. 26-49.

The traditional problem of the relationship between sociology and psychology appears, in this presentation, as the question concerning the relation between a sociostructural theory of crisis and a political-psychological theory of conflict. Insofar as psychoanalysis is an enlightened social science, it makes a unique contribution to a nonsubjectivist theory of the subject. Horn contrasts the psychoanalytic resolution of psychic conflicts with their "social legitimization": when a neurosis is rendered functional in a socially recognized form, it becomes unresponsive to psychoanalytic treatment. If psychoanalysis fails to understand this correlation, it becomes conformist. Insofar as the libidinal economics of "repressive desublimation" predominate under "organized capitalism," it becomes plausible that personality defects preponderate over traditional unconscious conflicts among the symptoms of psychic disturbance.
