"David Pavon-Cuellar provides an impressive account of the Freudian contribution to the critique of capitalism and of the Marxist contribution to the theory of mental apparatus. His engagement with the variety of historical and theoretical attempts to bring together Marxism and psychoanalysis fills a notable gap in the existing scholarship. Most importantly, Pavon-Cuellar reminds us that resistance to capitalism is a laborious process, a process of working through the layers of ideological mystifications of devastation caused by capitalism in all registers of human reality. Resistance of capitalism begins at the level of organization of thought, which means that a critique of economic doctrines is anything but complete without a rigorous critique of psychology." Samo Tomšič, Humboldt University Berlin and author of The Capitalist Unconscious: Marx and Lacan
"This admirable book highlights what is Marxist about psychoanalysis and what is psychoanalytic about Marxism in detailed readings of key figures at the interface of the two traditions. It will be indispensable for future researchers on either side of the false divide between the two." Néstor Braunstein, psychoanalyst, formerly Professor of Psychoanalysis at Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), Mexico
"Is the road to communism paved by psychoanalysis? If so, comrades of Marx and Freud have to unite against the normalizing forces of psychology. This fascinating book traces an international history of the complex alliance of Marxism and psychoanalysis, reminding us of the stakes of forgotten struggles and inciting us to return to the battlefield of critique." Jodi Dean, author of The Communist Horizon (2012) and Crowds and Party (2016)
