about this item

This volume consists of 11 essays that draw on philosophy and psychology to understand trauma. Psychologists and philosophers from the US and UK examine the ideas of thinkers like St. Augustine, Jacques Rancière, Michel Foucault, Jacques Derrida, Charles Taylor, Sigmund Freud, Martin Heidegger, Melanie Klein, Julia Kristeva, Richard Kearney, and Jacques Lacan; trauma in literary works like Hamlet and Ulysses; and case studies of clinical practice, the film Rabbit-Proof Fence, and the book of Job and the historical books of the ancient Israelite community that experienced the trauma of the Babylonian Exile.
