Face-to-face with differences in the analytical relationship analysts frequently confront the limitations of their theories. In this new book Mary Lynne Ellis and Noreen O'Connor move to the heart of 21st century intertwining of psychoanalytical and philosophical critical reflections. They highlight how philosophical perspectives on language, embodiment, time, history, and conscious/unconscious experiences can contribute to clinical interpretations of gender, sexuality, race, age, culture, and class. Vital to 'Questioning Identities: Philosophy in Psychoanalytic Practice' is its emphasis on clinical material and on attentiveness to the uniqueness of individuals' articulations of their desires and identities.
