About this book

Today, a widening range of historical phenomena are being examined through the psychoanalytic lens, while the psychoanalytic tradition itself is coming in for unprecedented historical scrutiny. This collection of essays showcases the innovative, and sometimes contentious, encounters between psychoanalysis and history.

Reviews

'This rich and interesting collection will provide an essential resource for those wanting to explore creative encounters between psychoanalysis and history.' - Radical Philosophy

"For a century psychoanalysts have carefully listened to their patient's accounts of their past and together have constructed 'a history.' This volume has brilliantly transformed that past into a rich and moving account of psychoanalytical historiography." - Christopher Bollas, psychoanalyst

"The authors of these provocative and wonderfully inviting essays have put psychoanalysis back on the historical agenda: they show the pertinence of psychoanalysis for history writing today and at the same time provide important new historical perspectives on the articulation of psychoanalysis as a method." - Lynn Hunt, Eugen Weber Professor of Modern European History, UCLA, USA
