Freud’s student Wilhelm Reich was excommunicated from the official psychoanalytic and communist political associations for advocating a radical politics of subjectivity that went beyond institutional affiliation on either side. In the 60s Felix Guattari also attempted to join psychoanalysis and political activism into a new from of micropolitcs. What remains is an impasse in which social change cannot move forward without an analytic discourse of radical difference and subjectivity and that psychoanalysis cannot move forward without a transformation in institutions.
