This book seeks to understand the coexistence of bodily regimes and the politics that emerge from the clash between them:

  • Presents a novel conceptual model for understanding the relationship between bodies and affects
  • Reworks Ranci re's notions of the distribution of the sensible and the aesthetic unconscious
  • Establishes a dynamic and multiple understanding of the repressive, distributive and communicative unconscious by rethinking Freudian psychoanalysis
  • Utilizes a variety of empirical materials, from Hollywood movies to Freud's case studies
  • Sets its argument about politics within the context of significant social events to ensure its conceptual and empirical material is relevant to the contemporary political moment


Steve Pile teaches Geography at The Open University, UK. Publishing on issues concerning place and the politics of identity, Steve is the author of Real Cities (2005) and The Body and The City (1996), which both develop a psychoanalytic approach to geography. It is through these projects that he became interested in bodies and affects and their relationship to contemporary modernity. His many collaborative projects include Psychoanalytic Geographies (2014) edited with Paul Kingsbury, and Spaces of Spirituality (2018) edited with Nadia Bartolini and Sara MacKian.
