Gradiva Award

Surprisingly, my book, The Economics of Libido, won at the Gradiva Awards.

I've been working in psychoanalysis, for some time now, with the idea that I wouldn't have much recognition in the field for a while.

I joked with some people that the win makes me like Trump, an outsider without any credentials, rivaling the (relational) establishment. I'm also sure that there are many who are unhappy with the idea that someone who is asking for a return to structural theory and Freud (outside of the Lacanian tradition) is gaining an ear.

People are hungry for change. This is the important takeaway.
