E-Mail: m.holohan@tum.de











Michael Holohan has an interdisciplinary background in psychoanalysis, psychotherapy, literary theory, and philosophy. He holds a PhD in the History of Consciousness from the University of California Santa Cruz, and an MSc in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy from the School of Psychotherapy, University College Dublin.

Michael’s dissertation explored the role of rhetoric for psychoanalytic thought, particularly how figurative language mediates between clinical practice and the construction of psychoanalytic theory. In his current work, he explores the relationship between different conceptions of the mind in psychoanalysis and biomedicine and the relevance of psychoanalytic thought for contemporary biomedical practice, research and ethics. 

In addition to his position as a researcher, Michael is also a psychoanalyst in private practice in Munich. He is a member of the Irish Council for Psychotherapy and the Association for Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy in Ireland.
