Almost one hundred years after the publication of Freud's ground-breaking Interpretation of Dreams, this book re-examines the complex and mutual relationships of psychoanalysis and postmodern society. This connected series of chapters co-authored by three psychoanalysts emphasizes the urgent need to renew psychoanalytic theory and practice, facilitating creative crossfertilization with other sciences, and "recuperating the original transgressive qualities of the Freudian discovery." Contents: Repercussions of Sociological Changes at the Turn of the Twentieth Century. Introduction; Discontent in Psychoanalysis; The Turn-of-the-Century Social Imaginary; Analyzability of the Postmodern Subject; The Culture of Anti-Insight; Psychoanalysis Loss of Space; National Identites at the Threshold of the Third Millenium. The Influence of Migration on the Psychoanalyst's Mind; The Sense of National Identity in the Psychoanalytic Field; The Sense of Identity Among Survivors of Extermination Camps and Their Children; National Identity and its Current Problems: A Psychoanalytic Approach.
