Overview


"Victor Burgin has an extraordinary talent for writing about 'everyday life,' melding together a category crucial to Freud, but also to Breton, the surrealists, Lefebvre, and the situationists. In/Different Spaces presents the postmodern world . . . with a dimension of lived experience which is surprisingly rare."—Peter Wollen, author of Raiding the Icebox: Reflections on Twentieth-Century Culture

"Burgin explores those modalities of psychoanalytic identification—abjection, paranoia, psychosis—that have a particular relevance for social and cultural processes that lead to violence, exclusion, discrimination, racism, and the claims (proven and unproven) towards a new globalism. What is distinctive and laudable is a convincing attempt to 'translate' psychoanalysis to address some of the most pressing and urgent social problems that we face."—Homi K. Bhabha, author of The Location of Culture
