"Psychoanalysis in Contexts" provides a comprehensive guide to the major traditions and trends in contemporary psychoanalytic critique. The volume brings together leading theorists to debate central issues of subjectivity, sexuality, gender identity, cultural reproduction and politics. Accordingly the book ranges widely across the major debates in psychoanalytic theory today and examines the key conceptual changes that have occurred in recent decades. Traditions of thought discussed include Freudian theory, object relations theory, Kleinian theory, Lacanian and post-structural psychoanalysis, post-Lacanian and postmodern theories.
