The role of the unconscious in political and social life. In times of political turmoil, where does one turn for insight? "Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold”?(Yeats). “The old is dying and the new cannot be born; in this interregnum a great variety of morbid symptoms appear”(Gramsci) “Everything must change so that everything can stay the same."
