This article argues that psychoanalysis should be firmly established in universities, so that its distinctive contribution to facilitating positive social change can be maximised. It notes that the rigorously reflexive nature of psychoanalysis may bring it into conflict with some political positions taken by groups from which its usual supporters are drawn. It is also difficult for its interpersonal orientation to be adapted to a societal frame. Nonetheless, it has a unique contribution to make to changing our understanding of the relation between reason and passion, a key issue for academia and for political change in the 21st century.
