Subject, Action, & Society: Psychoanalytical Studies and Practices is a double-blind peer-reviewed Journal published six-monthly, which with a renewed format continues the activity of recent decades of the International Journal of Psychoanalysis and Education (http://www.psychoedu.org).
Subject, Action, & Society: Psychoanalytical Studies and Practices aims at promoting a deeper understanding of the psyche-society bond and at analyzing and interpreting current times in their cultural, socio-political, institutional, and economic facets.
Innovative dynamics as well as radical issues experienced in contemporary societies (e.g. climate change, migration, new models of production, transformation of institutional format, innovative model of value construction, innovation in media and communication) challenge all domains of scientific knowledge, including psychoanalytically informed psychology. Starting from Freud’s formative writings devoted to the analysis of his zeitgeist, psychoanalysis has built a rich stream of thought on the psychodynamic interpretation of the vicissitudes of social, cultural and political worlds. Subject, Action, & Society: Psychoanalytical Studies and Practices intends to contribute to the revitalization of this tradition, so to aid the understanding of current times and the design of policies and strategies able to drive human development.
According to these goals, Subject, Action, & Society: Psychoanalytical Studies and Practices intends to be an international, multi-voiced forum fostering interdisciplinary dialogues with a plurality of disciplinary fields – from anthropology to earth sciences, from political studies to philosophy, from economics to education, from sociology to semiotics - in order to develop a comprehensive outlook on social systems and the transformative dynamics underpinning them.
The Journal publishes original contributions in a broad variety of formats - theoretical works, empirical papers, literature reviews, case analyses, brief reports, commentaries, and book reviews.
