Afecto, Cognición y Neurociencias

Tony D Sampson

Resumen

Al igual que muchas disciplinas académicas en el siglo XXI, las humanidades se han visto profundamente afectadas por los avances en las ciencias del cerebro. Conceptualmente esto ha significado que algunas de las principales inquietudes del pasado siglo, como las que se adhieren a una división cartesiana entre mente y cuerpo, o la dualidad psicoanalítica del consciente/inconsciente, han sido suplantadas por un nuevo tipo de relación neurológica; esto es, la relación establecida entre una facultad mental disminuida y el imperceptible poder gobernante de lo no-consciente. Lo que se presenta aquí se centra en una noción teóricamente impugnada del no-consciente neurológico que ha producido dos posicionamientos orientados de manera diferente en las posthumanidades. La discusión se centra en los intentos de asimilar una comprensión impugnada del no-consciente en un marco teórico cognitivo remodelado, por un lado, y una nueva interpretación materialista de la teoría del afecto, por el otro.
