The Unconscious: a Concept or a Metaphor?

THE NEURAL BASES OF THE UNCONSCIOUS
Andrew Mayes, Emeritus Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at Manchester University, will discuss whether conscious and unconscious memory have radically different neural bases or whether they, in fact, share a system.

IS THE UNCONSCIOUS A CONCEPT OR A METAPHOR?
Angus Nicholls, Reader in German and Comparative Literature at Queen Mary University of London, will discuss why the unconscious cannot be rendered conceptually and requires a metaphorical approach.
