Psychoanalysis and Culture
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"New Formations" is a journal of cultural debate, history and theory. It brings new and challenging perspectives to bear on the categories that frame cultural analysis and political action. The journal has covered issues ranging from the seduction of perversity to questions of nationalism and post-colonialism. Contributors open up new zones of enquiry whilst drawing new charts of understanding to explain new formations in contemporary life. "New Formations" brings together in one volume both established and new writers from many walks of critical life. Past contributors have included: Parveen Adams, Nomi Bhabha, Slavoj Zizek, Susan Buck-Morss, Gillian Rose, Jacqueline Rose, Zygmunt Bauman and Christopher Norris. Psychoanalysis is a travelling discipline, an itinerant that frequently changes its disciplinary hats and its political allegiance. The articles in this issue put contemporary culture on the couch, and assess its neurosis while cultures testify to the political legacy of psychoanalysis itself. In an extended review section, feminist writers return to the pioneering work of Juliet Mitchell, looking agin at questions of sexual difference; and this issue also includes the first British publication of Jacques Derrida's incisive critique of the International Psychoanalytic Association. Contributors include: Malcolm Bowie, Timothy Champion, Andre Green, Wendy Cealey Harrison, Jim Hopkins, Claire Pajaczkowska, Joan Raphael-Leff, Joanna Ryan, Dominque Scarfone, Ann Scott, Alex Tarnopolsky, Margot Waddell, D.W. Winnicott and Christopher Wintell.
