Description - Psychoanalysis, History and Subjectivity by Roger Kennedy
Clinical psychoanalysis since Freud has put reconstruction of the patient's history at the forefront of its tasks but in recent years, this approach has not been so prominent. This book aims to explore and re-evaluate the relationship between history and psychoanalysis. Roger Kennedy develops new perspectives on historiography by applying psychoanalytic insight to the key issues of narrative, time and subjectivity in the construction of historical accounts. Illustrated with clinical examples, Psychoanalysis, History and Subjectivity covers areas such as postmodernism, the nature of memory, clinical evidence and the place of trauma. It will be of great interest both to professionals in the psychoanalytic and therapeutic fields and to historians.
