A fascinating exploration of world events from leading psychoanalysts that shines new light on contemporary society.

Key Features & Highlights
• A psychoanalytic perspective provides clarity and fresh insight to current affairs.
• Compelling contributions from Christopher Bollas, Michael Rustin, Jonathan Sklar, David Bell, Philip Stokoe, Roger Kennedy, David Morgan, M. Fakhry Davids, Ruth McCall, R. D. Hinshelwood, Renée Danziger, Josh Cohen, Sally Weintrobe, and Steven Groarke.
• Investigating such vital issues as prejudice, fundamentalism, feminism, globalisation, and climate change.

Traumatic events happen in every age, yet there is a particularly cataclysmic feeling to our own epoch. The terrible events of September 11th 2001 still resonate and the repercussions continue to this day: the desperation of immigrants fleeing terror, the uncertainty of Brexit, Donald Trump in the White House, the rise of the alt-right and hard left, increasing fundamentalism, and terror groups intent on causing destruction. If that were not enough, we also have to grapple with the enormity of climate change and the charge that if we do not act now, it will be too late. Is it any wonder many are left overwhelmed?

Galvanised by the events outside of his consulting room, David Morgan began The Political Mind Seminars at the British Psychoanalytical Society in 2015 and their successful run continues today. A series of superlative seminars that examine the effects of the upheaval going on worldwide, this book is the first of two volumes to bring these seminars to a wider audience. A deeper understanding of humanity awaits.

David Morgan, is a consultant psychotherapist and psychoanalyst fellow of the British Psychoanalytical Society; a training analyst supervisor at the British Psychoanalytic Association; and a lecturer recognised nationally and internationally. He co-edited Violence, Delinquency and Perversion (2007) and has authored many publications and chapters. He is a director of Public Interest Psychology Ltd as well as a member of the International Psychoanalytical Association committee on Humanitarian Organisations. He has been the chair of ‘Political Minds & Frontier Psychoanalyst’, a radio broadcast series on Resonance FM.
