Overview

Psychosocial Imaginaries: Perspectives on Temporality, Subjectivities and Activism by Stephen Frosh

Psychosocial studies challenges the traditions of psychology and sociology from a genuinely transdisciplinary perspective. The book reflects this agenda in its varied theoretical and empirical strands, producing a newly contextualised and restless body of understanding of how 'psychic' and 'social' processes intertwine.
