Smith, Karl E (2005) Re-Imagining Castoriadis's Psychic Monad. Thesis Eleven: critical theory and historical sociology , 83 (1). pp. 5-14. ISSN 0725-5136


Smith compares the theory of Castoriadis with that of Gauchet. He explains that Gauchet reinterprets Castoriadis's psychic monad hypothesis, leading to the perspective that socialization is a mutual interaction between forces rather than an intrinsically violent imposition.
