Opposing the trend towards simplistic ‘solutions’ to complex problems, the psychoanalytic lens is an invaluable tool that helps us to focus our efforts in ways that might make a difference. This presentation addresses some of the ways in which our current society opposes the development of precisely the reflective capacities we need in order to work towards more effective and human solutions to our social problems, and will also suggest ways in which the psychoanalytic lens can be usefully applied in our efforts towards greater social justice.
