The main purpose of this book is to look at a range of ubiquitous phenomena that make up our daily life and to ask not so much "whether" but "what" psychoanalytic thinking can add to our current understanding of these phenomena. Could there be another layer, below the obvious surface-layer, that needs to be explored further? And if so, can psychoanalytic light reflect upon and illuminate some of the new contours and shapes perhaps previously not fully seen or appreciated? What interim conclusions can we reach as a result of this reflection upon our modern world? This book is linked to its immediate predecessor Psychoanalytic Perspectives on a Turbulent World but it differs significantly in tone, light and composition. This new book no longer addresses itself to the complex and troubling issues such as war, conflict, the global financial crisis and our struggle with leadership, instead, it tends to focus on the lighter side of life.

Review:

“We need all the help we can get in thinking about the unthinkable, and this kind of analysis goes below the surface of our fears and prejudices to explore the dynamics of some of the crises that facing our societies at this time. The contributors explore the delusional thinking that affects the world of work, the money markets, consumerism, traumatized societies, and climate change. A powerful response to this age of uncertainty.” (Tim Dartington, author of Managing Vulnerability: The Underlying Dynamics of Systems of Care)

“With this fascinating book, Halina Brunning demonstrates again her great ability to invite the reader to look underneath the surface of a range of ubiquitous phenomena that make up our daily organizational lives. The psychoanalytic perspective of the authors in this volume on what often seems obvious or even banal reveals disturbing and often frightening insights. There is, for example, murderousness in mergers, toxicity at the employee–customer interface, burnout even at the executive level, a perverse dynamic in the use of money and in the fashion industry, and apocalyptic fantasies behind our perception of climate change.” (Dr. Burkard Sievers, Professor of Organization Development, Schumpeter School of Business and Economics, Wuppertal, Germany; Past-President)

“This collection, conceived and beautifully edited by Halina Brunning, opens up new perspectives on the social and psychological dynamics of contemporary societies and the challenges they present to how we think and what we do. It should be widely read.” (David Armstrong)
