‘Supposing the Subject’ by Joan Copjec


The psychoanalytic subject in modern culture and politics.

A collection of essays by theorists in culture and politics. Experts from a variety of fields re-examine the origins of the subject as understood by Descartes, Kant and Hegel, and consider contemporary ideas that revive the subject, including queer theory and national identity.
