    Mapping the Subject: Geographies of Cultural Transformation.Steve Pile & N. J. Thrift (eds.) - 1995 - Routledge.
    With no precise boundaries, always on the move and too complex to be defined by space and time, is it possible to map the human subject? This book attempts to do just this, exploring the places of the subject in contemporary culture. The editors approach this subject from four main aspects--its construction, sexuality, limits and politics--using a wide ranging review of literature on subjectivity across the social and human sciences. The first part of the book establishes the idea that the (...)

  2. The Body and the City: Psychoanalysis, Space, and Subjectivity.Steve Pile - 1996 - Routledge.
    Over the last century, psychoanalysis has transformed the ways in which we think about our relationships with others.

    Spatialities of Skin: The Chafing of Skin, Ego and Second Skins in T.E. Lawrence’s Seven Pillars of Wisdom.Steve Pile - 2011 - Body and Society 17 (4):57-81.
    This article explores the relationship between skin, ego and second skins. It does so conceptually by re-examining Freud’s suggestion, in The Ego and the Id, that the ego is first and foremost a bodily entity, while also being a projection of a surface. Drawing upon Anzieu, a dynamic model of inter-weaving surfaces can be seen to underpin an understanding of the ego — and skin ego. This model is fundamentally spatialized. Even so, an appreciation of the spatialities of skin and (...)
