    This paper responds to issues raised by those commentators adopting a “British School” psychoanalytic perspective for psychosocial studies (Hollway, Hoggett, Jefferson, and Rustin). Our focus on Wendy Hollway's work is explained, and the logic of our discussion of reflexivity is clarified. The response examines five further issues: psychosocial studies as a discipline, psychoanalysis as a clinical practice, the discursive turn, “Lacan vs Klein”, and “inner” vs “outer” worlds. The paper concludes with a reiteration of the value of “negative” critique.
