Reviews and Endorsements

'Ian Parker has given us an elegant marriage of revolutionary discourses: Lacan, of subjectivity; Marx, of society and the human condition. Neither side absorbs the other, and the psychoanalytic project is advanced without lapsing into conformism.'
- Joel Kovel, formerly Distinguished Professor of Social Studies at Bard College, New York

'Here is a very interesting book that studies in a rigorous way, and with social psychological methods, the clinical practice of Lacanian psychoanalysts. An original approach to the question.'
- Elisabeth Roudinesco, Director of Research in History, University of Paris-Diderot

'This book elucidates why and how revolution should necessarily be the origin of the power of the subject, making us revolve now around the two foci: inside and outside the clinic, and thus through any possible Lacanian universe of discourse.
- Kazushige Shingu, Professor of Human and Environmental Studies, Kyoto University

'At last, a book series that will help to make the ideal of effective continuing professional development in the fields of psychotherapy and counselling more of a reality. Without being partisan or requiring an unrealistically high level of existing knowledge, the books offer a unique opportunity for experienced practitioners and advanced students to encounter the cutting edge of theory in their particular theoretical model.'
- Andrew Samuels, Professor of Analytical Psychology, University of Essex
