In this Zoom talk Leon S. Brenner describes autism as a singular mode of being that is fundamentally linked to one’s identity and basic practices of existence, offering a rigorous alternative to the prevailing treatment of autism as a mental or physical disorder.

Brenner outlines the unique features of the autistic subjective structure and provides a comprehensive synthesis of contemporary work on the psychoanalysis of autism.

Leon’s book, ‘The Autistic Subject: On the Threshold of Language’ was published by Palgrave MacMillan in 2020.

Leon is a founder of Lacanian Affinities Berlin (laLAB) and Unconscious Berlin, and a lecturer at the International Psychoanalytic University in Berlin.
