A growing body of work within the social sciences deploys psychoanalytic concepts in empirical research. This book explores the methodological justifications for these recontextualisations, offering a critical examination of the re-deployment of concepts from psychoanalysis into social theory and research. Lapping argues that this process of recontextualisation involves methodological and conceptual transformations that can significantly enhance our understanding of both social phenomena and the practice of research.
