This introductory chapter of the book Between Skins: The Body in Psychoanalysis – Contemporary Developments investigates how relations with others and the social world can really get under and inside our skins. The chapter offers some comments on the structure and style of this book. The aim of the chapter is to show up the failure in the traditional approach to the body question, in order to offer a convincing and viable alternative. The aim of this journey, with all its twists and turns, is to engage with the complexity of the field and to attempt to readdress the body in psychoanalysis, to link this with contemporary interdisciplinary developments and clinical actualities.
