If the best thing we do is look after each other, then the worst thing we do is pretend to look after each other when in fact we are doing something else. Psychoanalysis teaches us the dangers of this paradox--and, in doing so, gives us fair warning about the perils of all social endeavors. In one way, the talking cure can be seen as a kind of listening cure.

He explores why citizens in a democracy are so eager to establish levels of hierarchy when the system is based on the assumption that every man is created equal. And he ponders the importance of mockery in group behavior and the psyche's struggle as a metaphor for political conflict.… (mer)

Though Equals is psychoanalyst-essayist Adam Phillips's attempt to branch out into political thinking, the best essays in the collection, many of which have been previously published, are the ones about Freud and his followers. Particular standouts include "Around and About Madness," in which Phillips argues that "madness like what we call pornography is that which we cannot remain indifferent to," and his reviews of John Lanchester's Mr Phillips ("that hitherto unthinkable, almost absurd thing, a great English Existential novel") and Ray Monk's biography of Bertrand Russell.

Sunday Telegraph

"Brilliantly lucid; reading him on top form is like having bubbles of insight exploding inside one's head."
