About the Book

The concept of alterity is fundamental to all psychological theories. Most of these theories operate as if this concept is well understood and quite stable. This book challenges that notion by examining ideas about alterity in several different fields. It also offers an organizing template for the concept utilizing ideas from Lacan, Levinas and Dabrowski.
