The privileged link of psychoanalysis to spoken language does not necessarily facilitate communication among analysts and psychotherapists of different mother tongues. The Journal of European Psychoanalysis―published since 1995―has long sought to overcome these linguistic barriers.

Traditionally, it has introduced English readers to important European authors, as well as to authors of Latin American countries whose paradigms are close to European “styles.” Freed of the editorial and political constraints that often govern the official organs of schools and institutions, the Journal of European Psychoanalysis has, for many years, regularly featured conversations with some of the most prominent and brilliant figures in contemporary psychoanalysis: highlighting debates and trends within psychoanalysis and related fields while remaining ever-sensitive to the practical, ethical, and theoretical implications of clinical practice.

In Freud’s Tracks collects some of the most engaging and provocative of these conversations, thus tracing a recent history of psychoanalysis in Europe while also evidencing the discipline’s vital and vibrant connections with the fields of politics and social policy, science and philosophy, cultural studies and the social sciences.
