Summary

Khalek is a teenage boy who lives in an underground city, the denizens of which derive all of their food from roots that penetrate downwards from above ground. When he discovers a disease inflicting their only food source a series of events leads to the merging of his mind with that of Laura - a vehicle designer from present day earth. The population in Khalek’s world is barred from visiting the planet's surface, which is controlled by a xenophobic race of humanoids. The humanoids communicate amongst themselves non-verbally and are constantly moving from place to place, using their legs as their only means of transportation. Khalek and Laura, now as a single entity, embark on a journey to understand the interrelation of their respective worlds during which they find themselves attempting to communicate with the humanoids in order to stop the disease decimating Khalek's world. Mycelium Seep is a science fiction story that deals with questions arising from the implementation of new technology - is it possible to curb the rise of technology when it seems to lead down a dangerous path? A critical stance is taken regarding transportation, focusing on personal motorized vehicles.

    The ideas of psychoanalysis have permeated Western culture. It is the dominant paradigm through which we understand our emotional lives, and Freud still finds himself an iconic figure. Yet despite the constant stream of anti-Freud literature, little is known about contemporary psychoanalysis. 
    
    
    Introducing Psychoanalysis redresses the balance. It introduces psychoanalysis as a unified 'theory of the unconscious' with a variety of different theoretical and therapeutic approaches, explains some of the strange ways in which psychoanalysts think about the mind, and is one of the few books to connect psychoanalysis to everyday life and common understanding of the world.
    
    
    How do psychoanalysts conceptualize the mind?
    Why was Freud so interested in sex?
    Is psychoanalysis a science?
    How does analysis work?
    
    
    In answering these questions, this book offers new insights into the nature of psychoanalytic theory and original ways of describing therapeutic practice. The theory comes alive through Oscar Zarate's insightful and daring illustrations, which enlighten the text. In demystifying and explaining psychoanalysis, this book will be of interest to students, teachers and the general public.
