Description - Speculations After Freud by Michael Munchow
Psychoanalysis has transformed our culture. We constantly use and refer to ideas from psychoanalysis, often unconsciously. Psychology, philosophy, politics, sociology, women's studies, anthropology, literary studies, cultural studies, and other disciplines have been permeated by the competing schools of psychoanalysis. But what of psychoanalysis itself? Where is it going 100 years after Freud's own speculations took shape? Does it still have a role to play in cultural debate, or should it perhaps be abandoned? This text confronts the dilemmas of contemporary psychoanalysis by bringing together a number of notable writers on psychoanalysis, philosophy and culture. The advocates and critics of psychoanalysis, both institutional and theoretical, offer a critical appraisal of the powerful role played by psychoanalytic speculation in all areas of culture.
