In short, there is no such thing as a coherent, rational singular human being; indeed, the opposite is continually the reality for men and women. Issues of loss, waiting, vulnerability, precariousness, love, hurt, pain and (of course) power are unremitting and affect both men and women but with unequal consequences on gendered identity. There are two main strands of theorising subjectivity within psychoanalysis: the British school of object relations, with its emphasis on the mother and pre-oedipal subjectivity, and the Freud-Lacan framework, which emphasises patriarchal law, the name of the father, the Oedipus complex and the social order.

It must not intervene in the “natural” mechanisms of the free market, or take as its objective the amelioration of free-market capitalism’s propensity to create inequality’ (2012: 10). Currently, there is a widespread corrosion of the welfare state with devastating effect on employment, health (physical and mental) and the standard of life for many and here I am not just referring to the ‘squeezed middle classes’. I live part of the time in Nottingham (a city in East Midlands) where unemployment is high (30 per cent approximately), teenage pregnancy rates are the highest in Europe, public housing and education of a very poor standard and so on, unfortunately.

I have previously elucidated the conceptual psychoanalytic framework that I am working with in relation to time and history (Treacher Kabesh 2011) to argue that while cognitive sciences provide useful accounts of rationality and cognition I am reliant on psychoanalysis for its theorisations of subjectivity with its ‘multi-layered fragments of memory, odd bits of debris from the past, dream elements, gaping absences, convincing and also unconvincing stories, a history of discontinuities and unresolved questions, of traumas, things unsaid, and memories actively destroyed (Kennedy 2010: 181).
