Description - Anthropology and Psychoanalysis by Ariane Deluz
The contributors to this volume, both practising anthropologists and psychoanalysts, explore in detail the interface between the two disciplines and locate this within the history of both. In particular, they deal with the distinctive reactions of British, French and American anthropology to psychoanalysis, and the way in which the present fracturing of each of these national traditions and their post-modern turn, has led to willingness to investigate the relationships between the disciplines and the role of the unconscious in cultural life. The contributors also address important issues of methodology, and present a critical discussion of the concept of culture and the academic specialization of knowledge.
