Systematically reviews the key psychoanalytic theories and explores their relevance to modern life. Classical Freudian and object-relations theory is directed at the problem of group processes; ideas from the Frankfurt school are used to address modern individuality; and Lacanian theory is made to account for language, representation, and self-improvement. The book also includes coverage of ideas from Habermas, Klein and Kristeva.
