From the Publisher"Vitally important .for those interested in psychoanalysis Many have questioned, and rightly so, the relevance of psychoanalysis for the new millenium. It is the richest of the psychological disciplines, and yet has come close to relegating itself to an intellectual and clinical antiquity due to its arrogance, suspicion of new ideas, and tribal social nature. This volume is a necessary and powerful corrective to psychoanalytic blindness. Jeffrey Rubin offers psychoanalysis and psychoanalysts a new vision that preserves the powerful, unique contribution of the discipline while instilling a humane, receptive, and intellectually vital perspective on the field and its endeavors."
"By examining and confronting both psychoanalysis' strengths and its blind spots, this beautifully written and visionary book points the way toward a posthumanistic psychoanalysis characterized by self-reflectiveness, diversity, and an enormous emancipatory potential. A Psychoanalysis for Our Time is a breath of fresh air for all who are interested in the revitalization of contemporary psychoanalysis."
