Routledge, 1999 - Philosophy - 308 pages
No modern thinker has affected our views on identity and culture as forcefully as Sigmund Freud. Yet what is the relevance of Freud to today's world? How can Freudian theory be used to explore the cultural possibilities and dangers of the twenty-first century?
"Freud 2000" is a bold defense of the relevance and importance of Freud to contemporary culture, offering a highly readable and lucid application of Freudian concepts to current theoretical issues in the social sciences and the humanities. Issues addressed include the impact of Freud on our understanding of identity and sexuality; the relationship between psychoanalysis and feminism; problems of epistemology and method; and the dynamics of modernity and postmodernism.
Contributors: Jessica Benjamin, Stephen Frosh, Jacqueline Rose, Anthony Elliott, C. Fred Alford, Steve Pile, Barry Richards, Joanne Brown, Madelon Sprengnether, David S. Caudill and Harvie Ferguson.
