If we think of the beginnings of psychoanalysis, we certainly recognise that it overturned the vision human beings had of themselves, the illusion of ownership of their thoughts and actions. And in reality it still remains a way of reading the world, both inside and outside, that is admittedly disorienting. However, especially in recent years, the principles on which psychoanalysis was founded have been subjected to considerable pressure from the outside that forces psychoanalysis to problematise still more its vision of humankind and to abandon everything connected with prejudice toward the culture and history it was born out of, i.e. Western, in order to recognize the link between individual and social boundaries and the differences of various cultures. It is at this intersection between individual horizon and collective sphere that the psychoanalysis could be a galvanising force for knowledge and social growth.

 

The book poses these questions and brings together the different experiences of psychoanalysts living and working in a variety of realities and cultures.
