Subterranean Politics and Freud's Legacy reclaims psychoanalysis as an ally to critical theory's efforts to restore subjectivity and oppose systemic domination in modernity. Buzby achieves this aim by reimagining Freud as a militant optimist, compassionate practitioner, and innovator whose work still supports democratic processes. The most important contribution of this book, however, is the renewal of the radical psychoanalytic foundations of critical theory. A return to these psychoanalytic foundations restores the compassion of critical theory and grants crucial access to the psychological foundations of domination. Given the ongoing crisis of identity and purpose within critical theory, Subterranean Politics and Freud's Legacy marks a significant advancement in contemporary political theory.
