Psychoanalytic Interventions

Edited by Esther Rashkin, University of Utah, and Peter L. Rudnytsky, University of Florida

Freud described psychoanalysis as simultaneously a theory of mind, a method of interpretation, and a form of treatment. The ideal manuscript for this series reflects anawareness of all three of these dimensions of psychoanalysis—the scientific, the cultural, and the clinical—while making an original contribution in its uniquely configured interdisciplinary field.

By referring both to what a scholar does in a debate and to what an analyst says to a patient, the title“Psychoanalytic Interventions” sums up the aim of the series, which is to bring together the academic and clinical worlds of psychoanalysis in works that are compelling, lucid, and accessible to a wide range of readers.

The series seeks to publish outstanding books in all disciplines with which psychoanalysis is  engagedin a contemporary dialogue, from neuroscience to social work, though we anticipate that our core strengths will be in the humanities—literature, history, art history, cinema, popular culture, etc.—and in the social sciences, including psychology, sociology, anthropology, and political science.
