Psychoanalysis of the Internet

Editorial

Dr. Tamaro J. Green

 

In the area of psychoanalysis, research continues in Freud’s mode of cognition.  However, further research may be required to comprehend the role of psychoanalysis in behaviours around information technology.  Studies in neurobiology, computational biology, and neurology, may benefit from a social-psychological analysis of Internet behaviour.  Human computer interaction may expand to human psychology computer interaction or computational neurobiology to psychological computational neurobiology.  Carhart-Harris and Friston (2010) explore Freud’s modes of cognition in neurobiology.   Psychoanalysis of the Internet may include views on diversity and inclusion.  Giordano (2020) applies Freud’s modes of cognition to a literary analysis of female characters in two novels.  Boag (2014) suggests personality structures are constructed from multiple instinctual drives and multiple egos.
