    Abstract

    Book synopsis: Has psychoanalysis become “postmodern”? How are the various schools of psychanalysis being altered by postmodernism? What role does psychoanalysis have to play in the cultural debate in postmodern times? This is an account of the complex and contradictory nature of psychoanalysis in the postmodern age. Anthony Elliott presents a history and critique of the concept of postmodernism throughout contemporary psychoanalytic thought, giving a critical survey of the complex relations between desire, selfhood and culture.
