In Consciousness and the Aconscious in Psychoanalytic Theory, Ahmed Fayek summarizes current arguments and debates stemming from neurological and phenomenological perspectives. He presents the notion that consciousness needs to be considered a human phenomenon and not simply a manifestation of brain activity, which is an occurrence shared by all organisms. Using Freud's theories as they relate to consciousness, Fayek places his own theory of the aconscious within the context of Freudian thought.
Ahmed Fayek, PhD, is a retired clinical psychologist as well as a retired training and supervising psychoanalyst.

Editorial Reviews

Ahmed Fayek, an expert on Freud and psychoanalytic theory, has given us a clear and lucid book on the nature of consciousness. What makes it unique is his insightful treatment of Freud's original thinking about the nature of consciousness, and his examination of Freud's brilliant but largely forgotten Project for a Scientific Psychology. Definitely a recommended read.
