Product Description

Review

"This is a welcome addition to Frosh's earlier books on psychoanalysis and, like them, it is rigorous, clear and engaging . . . and can be highly recommended for extending understanding of psychoanalytic theory and its ethical foundations, and for placing these in the context of social and political issues." - Therapy Today 
 
"There are rich rewards in this book. It will change the way you think about things that might haunt you." - The Jewish Chronicle
 
"Widely read and open-minded, Frosh rolls with the punches thrown at his discipline, accepts the critiques, assimilates the writings of Fanon, Jacques Derrida, Judith Butler, Slavoj Zizek and others of their ilk and appropriates them to tease out the implications and possible applications that haunting and related uncanny phenomena have for psychoanalysis." - Jewish Quarterly

Product Description

Hauntings: Psychoanalysis and Ghostly Transmissions shows how the present is troubled by the past and by the future, using the idea of haunting to explore psychoanalytically how identities, beliefs, intimacies and hatreds are transmitted across generations and between people. It deals with the secrets that we inherit, the 'pull' of the past, and the way emotions, thoughts and impulses enter into us from others as a kind of immaterial yet real communication. This book demonstrates how past oppressions return, demanding acknowledgement and reparation, and explores how recognition and forgiveness can arise from this. Rooted in psychoanalysis, postcolonial and psychosocial studies, Frosh addresses the question of what passes through and between human subjects and how these things structure social and psychopolitical life.

5.0 out of 5 stars some fascinating insights 17 April 2013
By Davsha
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
recently saw the writer giving a talk, which was entertaining, insightful and thought provoking. Similarly the book is a great read, back to back or picking bits at random. Some great references to psychoanalysis theory, with writing livened by the use of sometimes less familiar anecdotes from the lives of Freud et al.
