Providing interpretations and drawing critically from classical and modern social theory, post-structuralism, and psychoanalytic theory, this original study offers an alternative way of thinking about the social and the individual. It offers critical analyses of, among others, Marx, Giddens, Bourdieu, Derrida, Laclau and Mouffe, Castoriadis, Freud and modern psychoanalytic theorists, and considers their roles in advancing our present-day conceptualization of the social and the self. In theorizing that behaviour is both socially determined and autonomous, it avoids the impasses of either individualist or structuralist approaches.

'... a challenging attempt to come to terms with some of the key dilemmas faced in theorizing the role of the psyche in a broader social context. It should prove useful as a text for teaching as well as appeal to specialists working in this field.' Professor John Solomos, University of Southampton
