Resistance and Psychoanalysis : Impossible Divisions (Hardcover) (Simon Morgan Wortham)
About this item
As calls mount for resistance to recent political events, Simon Morgan Wortham explores the political implications and complexities of a psychoanalytic conception of resistance. Through close readings of a range of authors, both within and outwith the psychoanalytic tradition, the question of the politics of psychoanalysis itself is read back into the task of thinking resistance from a psychoanalytic point of view.Morgan Wortham also reveals a new theory of phobic resistance at the centre of the politics of psychoanalysis, one that creates fresh possibilities for contemporary political analysis.
