In these essays renowned psychoanalyst Sudhir Kakar uses diverse sources, including case studies, Indian myths and legends, and fiction, to analyse various facets of Indian identity. He explores the Indian psyche through a cultural and psychoanalytical investigation of ideas concerning identity and sexuality.
The second edition updates the role of culture in psychoanalytic thought, and includes discussions on culture and psychoanalysis, rumours and riots, and the psychology of Islamist terrorism. Culture and Psyche will appeal equally to scholars of social psychology, cultural studies, anthropology, and sociology, as well as general readers interested in the psychology of Indian imagination.
