To this end the ideas of Zizek on the symbolic and systemic dimensions of violence, and Badiou's account of the "violent history" of democracy, are briefly discussed. The central argument of Manganyi's argument is adumbrated, namely, that the violent reverie has the potential to offer a creative expression to the alienation and anguish of the subordinated racial (black) subject. The article concludes with a brief introduction to Manganyi's impressive oeuvre that incorporates work on psychology, biography, and contemporary politics. <![CDATA[<b>The violent reverie</b>: <b>the unconscious in literature and society</b>]]> http://www.scielo.org.za/scielo.php?script=sci_arttext&pid=S1015-60462011000100002&lng=pt&nrm=iso&tlng=pt The reprinting of Manganyi's (1997) work, "The violent reverie", is introduced through a contextualisation of the social relations that form the structural and material foundations of violence.

We explore his reconstruction of the history of modernity and critique of Eurocentrism, his reconstruction of the later Marx, his concepts of analectics and trans-modernity, and his ethical framework. Finally we consider his relevance for psychology in the context of the debate over modernism, indicating some features of a Dusselian, transmodern psychology. <![CDATA[<b>Facebook, cyberspace, and identity</b>]]> http://www.scielo.org.za/scielo.php?script=sci_arttext&pid=S1015-60462011000100004&lng=pt&nrm=iso&tlng=pt In this article the use of the social networking site, Facebook, is scrutinized in the light of Turkle's work on identity in relation to the internet, as well as of commentaries regarding the growing popularity of the social networking site. The related issue of panopticism regarding sites such as Facebook is examined in the light of the work of Foucault on disciplinary mechanisms in modern society. Virilio gives greater insight on the question of the social consequences of cyberspace as the new "frontier", and focuses on the decline of language in favour of the growing dominance of images in cyber-domains like Facebook. These findings are finally interpreted with regard to "identity" in terms of Lacan's conception of the subject. <![CDATA[<b>Gender and AIDS</b>: <b>exploring an intimate relationship</b>]]> http://www.scielo.org.za/scielo.php?script=sci_arttext&pid=S1015-60462011000100005&lng=pt&nrm=iso&tlng=pt In this article the use of the social networking site, Facebook, is scrutinized in the light of Turkle's work on identity in relation to the internet, as well as of commentaries regarding the growing popularity of the social networking site.
