The book addresses key issues such as:
- Is there psychoanalysis in Hong Kong?
- How does one do research on psychoanalysis in Hong Kong?
- Why was the Freudian Unconscious not discovered in China?
- How can we describe the core of psychoanalysis and how can this description be understood in different cultural contexts?
- Can psychoanalytic research be led by adopting a quantitative or statistical methodology?
Founded on the belief that psychoanalysis should be re-invented in light of its encounter with non-Western cultures, this book highlights an opportunity to undertake this as an intellectual, cultural and artistic challenge. It will enrich researchers’ and students’ understanding of psychoanalysis and inform broader views of psychoanalysis in non-Western contexts. Practicing psychoanalysts, students of psychoanalysis and those seeking to understand psychanalysis in different cultural contexts will be particularly interested readers.
