The Reality Principle: Fanonian Undoing, Unlearning, and Decentering: A Discussion of “Fanon’s Vision of Embodied Racism for Psychoanalytic Theory and Practice”

Lara Sheehi, Psy.D.

This response argues that attention to the ideological misattunements in psychoanalytic work helps us move beyond the symbolic—and that which it hides—into the real, material implications for our patients. By discussing Waverley’s hyper-corporality especially in relation to Knoblauch, his White analyst, we can mark a real vs. symbolic recognition of the expansiveness of Whiteness and the ways in which it aims to recenter itself in our theory, practice, and training. More specifically, using Knoblauch’s (this issue) moving account of a moment of “misrecognition,” this response takes up the ways in which Whiteness materializes an ideological apparition that aims to invert the visible-invisible spectrum.
