Jouissance as Ananda seeks to resolve the often-problematic Western concept of the ego by proposing a cross-cultural theory of consciousness that draws on Indian philosophy. Author Ashmita Khasnabish uses the Indian concept of ananda to advance Irigaray’s theory of jouissance and offers a re-reading of jouissance from an Indian cross-cultural psychoanalytic point of view.
