Tracking the White Rabbit: A Subversive View of Modern Culture

Synopsis

Since its beginning, depth psychology has attempted to change the status quo of individual and cultural life by probing beneath surface appearances.Lyn Cowan explores a number of subjects, considering what possible meanings and implications for change might lie behind the conventional attitudes toward such subjects as:* Abortion* Gender and sexuality* Language* Memory* MelancholyThe author puts forward the argument that, although "psychology" and "subversion" are not usually thought of as belonging together, they should be.Such a view, presented clearly with humour and insight, offers a way to think differently about usual things, and yield fresh meaning to some of the pressing dilemmas of our time and how we as individuals may respond to them.
