|Abstract: ||Both psychology and psychiatry are dominated by individualistic
accounts of paranoia (and, indeed, other forms of distress). As a corrective
to these, this paper provides a social account of paranoia grounded in a minimal
notion of embodied subjectivity constituted from the interpenetration
of feelings, perception and discourse. Paranoia is conceptualized as a mode
or tendency within embodied subjectivity, co-constituted in the dialectical
associations between subjectivity and relational, social and material influences.
Relevant psychiatric and psychological literature is briefly reviewed;
relational, social structural and material influences upon paranoia are
described; and some implications of this account for research and intervention
