Subject to Change is a collection of essays written by Polly Young-Eisendrath, a highly-regarded senior Jungian analyst. The selected essays deal with the big issues surrounding how psychoanalysts understand their profession and how they can improve it. The book is divided into four clear and informative sections:

· Uncertainty and Subjectivity, which engages with Jungian theory and postmodern relations
· Feminism, Gender and Contrasexuality focusing on Jungian ideas on gender and contemporary gender theory
· Transference and Transformation in psychotherapy
· Transcendence and Subjectivity which uses Buddhist concepts to offer a critique of current biopsychological thinking as well as to clarify the possible aims of psychotherapy

The essays presented in Subject to Change are classics that will have significant appeal not only to those concerned with psychotherapy, but also those interested in spirituality.
