    Abstract

    Psychoanalysis, having been situated in the borders of natural and social sciences and humanities as well as at the crossroads of Romantic, Modern and Postmodern historical conditions, continues to inspire and learn from extremely rich human imagination, thought and experience. This volume brings together leading scholars and practitioners from different parts of the world who present unique insights into the field of psychoanalysis. It forms novel dialogues between different psychoanalytic orientations as well as the particularities of diverse socio-cultural and historical contexts. The interconnected chapters in this collection: -critically explore important aspects of psychoanalysis which have been underutilized in socio-historical and political analysis -provide new insights on human psychosocial world in terms of embodiment, subjectivity, collective action, contemporary societal structures and political cultural dynamics in order to facilitate further transdisciplinary conversations -re-vision psychoanalysis as a self-reflective way of life, which is significantly relevant to, and is a meaningful way out of, many of our contemporary dilemmas
