Abstract "The modern labour market has increasingly put the inner working life on the agenda. This stems from a number of societal changes: the knowledge society and its need of personalised competences and work Investments in welfare services, the transformation from subject-object relationships to subject-subject relationships and the emergence of the 'learning organisations' and reflexive leadership. All of this has been the subject of critical analyses tracing modern work life identities, conflicts, organisational and societal structuration. Against this background the accounts and conceptualisations of work life involving people to people interactions offered by psychodynamic theories and methods take up a pivotal position. Psychoanalytic organisational and work life research explores how work, organisations and individuals are affected by psychic dynamics, the influence of the unconscious in the forms of human development and interaction situated in a societal context. Based on this substantial work the authoress draws upon two influential psychoanalytical positions - the British Tavistock position and German psychoanalytic social psychology in order to situate and identify how to understand the inner and outer life at work - in a generic display of concepts, methods and epistemoloqy."
