New Library of Psychoanalysis 'Beyond the Couch' series

Series Editor: Alessandra Lemma

The New Library of Psychoanalysis Series aims to promote a widespread appreciation of psychoanalysis by supporting interdisciplinary dialogues with those working in the social sciences, the arts, medicine, psychology, psychotherapy, philosophy and with the general book reading public. The Beyond the Couch Series creates a forum dedicated to demonstrating this wider application of psychoanalytic ideas. These books written primarily by psychoanalysts, specifically address the important contribution of psychoanalysis to contemporary intellectual, social and scientific debate.
