Abstract or Description

In our response to Clinical Encounters in Sexuality: Psychoanalytic Practice and Queer Theory we acknowledge the volume’s considerable contribution to re-starting the dialogue between clinical practice and queer theory and highlight three fields in which the debate should be extended with insights from Deleuzian theory. These fields are: the problematisation of key terms, such as desire and the unconscious; the place of psychoanalysis in the contemporary field of socio-political forces and discourses; the ultimate aim of psychoanalysis as a praxis between client and analyst.
