Overview

Since its beginning, depth psychology has attempted to change the status quo of individual and cultural life by probing beneath surface appearances. Lyn Cowan explores a number of subjects, considering what possible meanings and implications for change might lie behind the conventional attitudes toward such subjects as:
* Abortion
* Gender and sexuality
* Language
* Memory
* Melancholy
The author puts forward the argument that, although "psychology" and "subversion" are not usually thought of as belonging together, they should be. Such a view, presented clearly with humour and insight, offers a way to think differently about usual things, and yield fresh meaning to some of the pressing dilemmas of our time and how we as individuals may respond to them.
