Psychoanalytic Theory: An Introduction by Anthony Elliott
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In this comprehensive introduction to psychoanalytic theory and its application in the social sciences and humanities, now available in a new and fully revised edition, Elliott provides lucid interpretations of key psychoanalytic theorists such as Freud, Klein, Winnicott, Kohut, Lacan, Laplanche and Kristeva. He also examines the political and cultural dimensions of psychoanalytic studies, from feminism to postmodernism. Issues covered range from psychoanalytic approaches to race and post- colonialism to the reframing of sexuality studies in the light of recent advances in feminist thinking.
