Abstract

The paper examines Stiegler’ use of psychoanalytic concepts, focusing on how the proletarianised or blissfully numb mind may begin to work its way towards ‘a life worth living’. The emphasis is on the process rather than the final outcome. Winnicott’s concept of relationality and Lacan’s concept of time in analysis can be aligned to the concept of pharmakon. Stiegler’s autobiographical account How I Became a Philosopher (2009) and the initially ‘stupid’ hero of the Lego Movie (2014) are used as examples.
