“Two’s company but three’s a couple” – Adam Phillips, Monogamy  

Phillips writes that we require a new language to communicate and negotiate our romantic and sexual desires, one that doesn’t take monogamy for granted or conceive of it as an antidote to contingency and infidelity. "All prophets of the erotic life are false prophets because every couple has to invent sex for itself. They are not so much making love as making it up."

Join us for a complimentary drinks reception from 18:30. The discussion will begin at 19.00, followed by a Q&A and post-talk social at The Curtain’s private members bar.

Adam Phillips is a practising psychoanalyst, formerly Principle Child Psychotherapist at Charing Cross Hospital, and a visiting professor in the English department at the University of York. He is the author of numerous works of psychoanalysis and literary criticism, and is the General Editor of the Penguin Modern Classics Freud translations and a Fellow of The Royal Society of Literature. He will be in conversation with writer and critic Maria Dimitrova.
