The Psyche and the Social: Judith Butler's Politcizing of Psychoanalytical Theory

In Jens de Vleminck (ed.), Sexuality and psychoanalysis: Philosophical Criticisms. Leuven University Press. 10--171 (2010)
Drawing on The Psychic Life of Power (Butler 1997), this essay sketches the outline of Butler's project of bringing Foucault (politics) and Lacan (psychoanalysis) together. In addressing the psychic life of power, Butler tries to unravel the dynamic interplay of the psychic and the social with the subject as the intersection of both.
