About this Book

Between Skins challenges individualistic accounts of the body in psychoanalysis. Drawing on philosophy, contemporary neurobiology and developmental research, Nicola Diamond explores the ways in which bodily processes and skin experience are inseparable from the field of language and environmental context.

  • The first book to address epistemological implications for a new understanding of the body and embodiment - offers a new perspective on the division between mind, body and world
  • Brings together a philosophical phenomenological account of body experience with key concepts from psychoanalysis, developmental research and neuroscience
  • Responds to a growing interest in the body and psychoanalysis, and considers some limitations in neuro-biological accounts of brain-body processes for psychoanalytical understanding
