Psychoanalysis and Other Disciplines Confront Prejudice: Discrimination Against the Other presents interdisciplinary perspectives on prejudice.

This book considers both the negative and positive implications of a priori transmission of values and knowledge. It examines various aspects of prejudice from the perspectives of psychoanalysis, biology, sociology and law. The contributors consider prejudice to be a judgement that precedes experience; it organises and discriminates the events and facts we must assess to understand the world around us, thereby helping us make sense of the world of words, concepts, networks and values into which we are born. Chapters cover a range of topics such as racism, superstition, discrimination and prejudice in psychoanalytic practice. This volume provides a path-breaking treatment of prejudice and how it affects our lives and interactions with others.

Psychoanalysts in training and in practice will find this book a vital resource.
