Mystery, Recognition, and Revitalization: A Discussion of “Going to Where the World Ends: When the Bodies of Children Speak Who is Listening?”

Sue Grand, Ph.D.

In this discussion of Peltz’s “Where the World Ends” (this issue) the author pursues the mystery of embodied communal protest in conditions of near death. This protest challenges the limits of psychoanalytic theories of subjectivity, inter-subjectivity, trauma and the body. The effectiveness of this protest also illuminates the narcissistic destabilization of contemporary liberal democracy. The particulars of this protest allow citizens to restore national narcissism through the pursuit of national ideals. Given the efflorescence of neo-fascism within neo-liberal democracies, psychoanalysts need to study how national narcissistic wounds can be repaired through recourse to ideals rather than through the extrusion of the Other.
