    Controversial claims that C.G. Jung, founder of analytical psychology, was a charlatan and a self-appointed demi-god have recently brought his legacy under renewed scrutiny.

  • Amnesiac Selvesby Nicholas Dames

    Oxford University Press 2001; US$ 59.99

    With Joyce, Proust, and Faulkner in mind, we have come to understand the novel as a form with intimate ties to the impulses and processes of memory. This study contends that this common perception is an anachronism that distorts our view of the novel. Based on an investigation of representative novels, Amnesiac Selves shows that the Victorian novel... more...

  • Freudby Peter D. Kramer

    HarperCollins 2006; US$ 10.99

    Often referred to as "the father of psychoanalysis," Sigmund Freud championed the "talking cure" and charted the human unconscious. But though Freud compared himself to Copernicus and Darwin, his history as a physician is problematic. Historians have determined that Freud often misrepresented the course and outcome of his treatments—so that the... more...

  • Freud on a Precipiceby Robert Langs

    Jason Aronson, Inc. 2009; US$ 69.99

    Freud on a Precipice is an exploration of eight likely early-life traumas experienced by Sigmund Freud and an effort to show how their unconscious processing adversely affected the psychoanalytic theory he forged beginning in the late 1890's. Using a new method to decode key narratives in Freud's opus, Langs makes a compelling argument for the probability... more...

  • The Pre-Psychoanalytic Writings of Sigmund Freudby Duncan Barford; Filip Geerardyn; Gertrudis Van de Vijver

    Karnac Books 2002; US$ 41.95

    The traditional dating of the origin of psychoanalysis to 1900, when Freud published The Interpretation of Dreams, ignores the massive body of work he produced well before this date. Covering fields as diverse as neurology, physiology, philosophy, and pharmacology, this wealth of unjustly neglected material was to have a profound influence upon the... more...
