|About the Book|
This book is a benchmark critique of Freudian theory inwhich a dialogue between the Frankfurt School, the Lacanian tradition and post-Lacanian developments in critical and feminist theory is developed. A superb exposition and critique of the encounter between psychoanalysis and social theory. Critical Sociology Admirably lucid and even-handed, yet theoretically engaged, this is a comprehensive guide to the encounter between psychoanalysis and social critique. It will undoubtedly help to promote a more informed debate around this crucial intersection in contemporary thought. Professor Peter Dews, University of Essex.
