This book sets forth a grounded theory of ‘authenticating’ as a basic socio-political process important in the understanding of the origins, development, and consequences of competing knowledge claims in diverse areas of human experience and activity over time and place. The book is part historiography, part autoethnography, and part memoir. It details the author’s revisiting of the quest for authenticity in the social world of psychoanalysis (from the mid-1980s), from the standpoint of a participant observer, social constructionist social scientist academic and classical Freudian psychoanalyst practitioner.
