Abstract or Description

How can we develop a politics and theory of subjectivity suitable for the twenty-first century? What place does an account of subjectivity have within the development of critical psychology today? Leading authors from a range of disciplines explore the themes of politics, migration, population movement, culture and spirituality, to examine how we might find new ways to think about the human subject in the new millenium. The chapters are diverse in terms of approach, theoretical orientation and subject matter. What joins them together is an engagement with pressing social, cultural and political issues and an innovative approach to the issues of subjectivity contained within them.

From the legacies of fascism to the politics of Northern Ireland, from anti-road protesters to the new physics, Challenging Subjects takes a challenging look at what forms of human subjectivity will look like and how we might study them.
