Abstract (English)

Grounded in Freudian and Lacanian theories of desire, sexual identity and the unconscious, this collection of essays on the social formations of fantasy poses the question of the relation between fantasy and reality. Specific cultural practices and situations are analysed in an attempt to theorize the social, and therefore political dimension of psychical reality. Includes an index. 166 bibl. ref.
