The Psychology of a Changing Workplace.Despite the central role of the workplace in American social and economic life, psychoanalysis has had little to contribute to our national conversation about the nature and meaning of work. In Work and the Evolving Self, Steven Axelrod begins to remedy this serious oversight by setting forth a comprehensive psychoanalytic perspective on work life. Consonant with his analytic perspective, Axelrod sets out to illuminate the workplace by examining the psychodynamic meaning of work throughout the life cycle.Includes bibliographical references and index.
