Psychoanalysis teaches us that the ego is not master in its own house. With the birth of intelligent machines, digital technology, and robots, not only is the Ego not mastered in its own home but, in addition, it is invited to migrate into new spaces, which increases certain parts of its psychic life, or obliterated others. The resulting psychic transformations are considerable!
This book provides conceptual and clinical tools to understand them, through three parts: the place of the virtual in the psychic field (virtual psychic, and psychopathology of borderline disorders); the subject’s relationship with the digital (augmented subject, augmented man, digital and digital mediations in treatment); finally, his relationship to robots (robophilia, robophobia, robotic mediations with the autistic child, and sexuality in the era of images and robots).
