About this book

A collection of 18 contributions by well-known scholars in and outside the US, The Unhappy Divorce of Sociology and Psychoanalysis shows how sociology has much to gain from incorporating rather than overlooking or marginalizing psychoanalysis and psychosocial approaches to a wide range of social topics.

Reviews

“Editors Lynn Chancer and James Andrews have gathered together in The Unhappy Divorce of Sociology and Psychoanalysis a notable group of scholars who have studied this rich legacy and who carry on the tradition today. … These essays and several others contain enriching insights for sociologists. … To overcome our collective resistance to individuality, we may not need the couch, but we definitely need this book.” (Christine Williams, Contemporary Sociology, Vol. 46 (1), January, 2017)

'The volume does deliver what it promises diverse perspectives on the psycho-social, and this is its biggest merit. As is indeed the fact that it triggers an awareness raising process, and this is also why it should not be ignored.' - LSE Review of Books


'The Unhappy Divorce of Sociology and Psychoanalysis reboots the long-interrupted conversation between two historic disciplines. As happens when cultures are separated by continental drift and time, differences of language and outlook and discourse obtain. But this book creates a space, a salon, that kickstarts the colloquy between these natural interlocutors into a new momentum. What an exciting development!' - Muriel Dimen, New York University, USA

'This book offers a refurbished analytic tool-kit for thinking across and mapping the gaps between inner and outer, individual and group, psychic and social, repression and oppression. This volume's reach thus goes well beyond the two disciplines named in its title "Sociology" and "Psychoanalysis" to prompt and provoke multiple, vital interdisciplinary investigations of the ways gender, race, and class are built, lived, and contested.' - Ann Pellegrini, New York University, USA
