About this title


Offering a cognitive and psychoanalytic approach, this work asks why culture is a problem that can never be solved. It develops a theory of cultural dialectics based on the concept of paradox, in which it shows how ambivalence and conflicts are at the heart of all cultural knowledge systems.
