'Avello' Call for Papers: Malabou and Zizek on the Neuronal Unconscious

From the journal editor Jason Wakefield:

"After the success of issue one of volume one – around the aesthetic concept of the sublime; we are proud to announce issue one of volume two. Our second volume joins the firework display of the debate raging between our editorial board member Catherine Malabou and the celebrity psychoanalyst Slavoj Žižek with regards to the concept of the neuronal unconscious. The original approach to this debate we would like to see developed is how this debate is abbreviated by (or affects) developments in today’s neuro-scientific research on the cerebral unconscious and / or eighteenth – century theological ethics.

The keys texts contributors must cite are contained in Catherine Malabou’s The New Wounded (2004), Slavoj Žižek’s In The End Times (2010) and David Hume’s Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion (1779).

We invite contributions of articles between 5, 000 – 6, 000 words in length. Email your papers to for peer review. The deadline is July 1st 2012"
