What Is Nothing?: Alenka Zupančič with Martin Heidegger (2018)
One of the aims of Alenka Zupančič in writing What IS Sex was not, we can be sure, facilitating a rapprochement between psychoanalytic thinking and the philosophy of Martin Heidegger. Although Zupančič does mention Heidegger’s name in the book, she does so to point out the distance between the psychoanalytic position and Heidegger’s. Furthermore, her approach to psychoanalysis does not lend itself to the questions that preoccupy Heidegger. Even if Zupančič were theoretically disposed to highlight a link to Heidegger’s thought, now would hardly be the time, given the ebb in his reputation after the publication of his overt anti-Semitism in the Black Notebooks
