AbstractIn what ways can psychoanalysis, as both a theoretical body and a clinical practice contribute to an understanding of the salient social and political problems of our time? This engaged and generous collection of essays with contributions from internationally renowned academics, writers, filmmakers and psychoanalysts, explores the historical, social and emotional factors underpinning the development of extreme forms of hatred and distrust of the other. In the process of a sustained interdisciplinary interrogation, psychoanalysis's strength emerges not in its capacity to provide any lasting solution to socio-political uncertainties, but rather in its capacity to tolerate ambivalence. This collection will be of value to scholars, postgraduate and undergraduate students in the field of the history of ideas, literature, postcolonial studies, psychology and psychoanalysis. It can also be enjoyed by the general reader interested in the psychology of extreme belief.
