Martina Burdet: Love in the Time of the Internet.

Martina Burdet is a training analyst for the Psychoanalytic Association of Madrid and member of the Psychoanalytic Society of Paris. She is the Chief Executive of the e-journal Psychoanalysis.today, former General Secretary of the EPF and the Current Chair of its Working Group on Remote Analysis. 

Her book, Love in the Time of the Internet – Do you l@ve me or do you follow me? was written as a response to the increasing number of patients she has seen over recent years who are experiencing problems in their lives – problems that seem to come at the crossroad between the intrapsychic world and the social environment, digital revolution and virtual reality. She wrote the book as a psychoanalyst for psychoanalysts, but it is also intended for a wider public interested in psychoanalysis. In it, she combines psychoanalytic theory with what she calls ‘Ordinary Stories’; that is, stories of patients who describe how they can – or actually, how they cannot – love in the time of the Internet.
