Robert Beshara’s Freud and Said: Contrapuntal Psychoanalysis as Liberation Praxis (Palgrave, 2021) is a guide through the textual relationship between the work of Sigmund Freud and Edward Said. It is also a valuable handbook in critical psychology that chronicles many works at the intersection of psychoanalysis and decoloniality from around the world. Beshara urges psychoanalytic practitioners to consider the fundamental role of colonial difference in our psychic lives and demonstrates the importance of accounting for unconscious processes in the study of culture and the work of decolonization.
