Has psychoanalysis become 'postmodern'? What role does psychoanalysis have to play in the cultural debate in postmodern times? In what ways are the various competing schools of psychoanalysis being altered by postmodernism?

Psychoanalysis at its Limits presents a history and critique of the concept of postmodernism throughout contemporary psychoanalytic thought. As such it is a critical survey of the complex relations between desire, selfhood and culture.

The book brings together some of the most influential and best known writers on psychoanalysis and psychoanalytically informed cultural criticism to develop a novel rethinking of the relations between psychoanalysis and postmodernism, sexual difference and subjectivity, and the postmodern reconceptualization of unconscious desire in contemporary psychoanalysis. Contributors include Jessica Benjamin, Jane Flax, Stephen Frosh, Thomas Ogden, Stephen Mitchell, Karen Peoples, and Mark Bracher.

Psychoanalysis at its Limits offers a stimulating account of the complex and contradictory nature of psychanalysis in the postmodern age. --- from the publisher
