Social policy and political theory are based upon rationalist models of the human subject. Drawing particularly upon contemporary Kleinian and feminist political theory the author explores the powerful role that emotions such as love, hate and fear play in the development of the human subject. Unreasonable subjects; strangers to ourselves?; conflict, difference and dialogue; a place for experience; building castles in the sand - racial and ethnic identities in civil society; finding your voice; mobilizing fictions; the internal establishment; hatred of dependency; ethical foundations of welfare universalism.
