From the Publisher"The dagger that begins it cuts through Rothenberg's book with afine precision. It dissects in the works of several of the mostinfluential theorists of our day a powerful and new concept ofcause which often gets away from the authors who struggle to defineit. Rothenberg's astute argument is richly woven, lucid, and highlycompelling."
Joan Copjec, author of Imagine There's No Woman
"We still don't know what a subject can do. We still don't knowhow to think subjective agency together with social causality.Rothenberg's path-breaking and systematic study of 'extimatecausality,' combining psychoanalysis and emancipatory socialtheory, goes a long way towards formulating decisive new answers tothese perennial questions."
Peter Hallward, Middlesex University
"Rothenberg's insights into the structure of the subject and itsrelevance for social and political theory are peerless. For anyonebeginning to study the themes and thinkers covered in this book,this is the place to start."
