Abstract: A psychological analysis of David Cronenberg’s films is undertaken in the paper. Two different points of view are adopted: a) conceptual, in which we consider that it is possible to define psychology within a specific category system, and that it may incorporate into its statements the results of analysing different types of artistic or cultural phenomena; and b) thematic: in which "new flesh" (referring to an aesthetic expression based on the transformation of the human body that normally occurs from fusing organism and matter –in most cases, technologically–) is the central concept in Cronenberg’s films. More specifically, we have approached Cronenberg’s theory of the subject through his concepts of ‘body’ and ‘new flesh’, taken as a psycho-physiological way of overcoming the classic idea of subjectivity –the dualist structure that distinguishes between mind and body.
