This monograph of Revista Guillermo de Ockham, a journal edited by Universidad de San Buenaventura Cali, Colombia, deals with the fundamental question that gravitates in all its pages: is there a political unconscious? The answer is addressed by each of the authors of this publication, who from epistemological, methodological, and theoretical-conceptual horizons —on some occasions located in specific cultural contexts— rigorously presented their different arguments, evidencing their social and academic relevance along the way. Their views not only considered the question about the existence of a political unconscious, but also about its thoughtful applicability in the human and social sciences, such as philosophy, economics, psychoanalysis, as well as in cultural and feminist issues, topics that are part of this number.
