9780061346620: Revolution in Mind: The Creation of Psychoanalysis

Makari answers two fundamental questions: How did Freudian theory come together as a body of ideas, and how did these ideas attract followers who spread this model of the mind throughout the West? Makari contextualises Freud's early psychological work amid the great changes occurring in late-19th century European science, philosophy, and medicine, showing how Freud was a creative, inter-disciplinary synthesizer whose immersion in pre-existing domains of study led to the creation of Freudian Theory.He looks at how Freud's followers built a heterogeneous movement in the years leading to 1914, at the growth of the movement, and its subsequent collapse with the departures of Bleuler, Jung, and Adler. Finally, Makari examines the critical, but neglected, Weimar period, when there was an attempt to rebuild a more pluralistic psychoanalytic community, a reformation that resulted in psychoanalysis's broader theoretical reach and greater acceptance across the Western world outside Europe, where the rise of fascism led to the destruction of psychoanalysis and the culture that once sustained it." Revolution in Mind" stands alone as the first historical work to seriously study the central dilemmas that defined, organised, and disrupted this would-be science of the psyche during its formation.

Product Description:

Groundbreaking, insightful, and compulsively readable, Revolution in Mind goes beyond myth and polemic to give us the story of one of the most controversial and important intellectual endeavors of the twentieth century. In this masterful history, George Makari demonstrates how a new way of thinking about inner life coalesced and won followers who spread this body of thought throughout the West. Along the way he introduces the reader to a fascinating array of characters, many of whom have been long ignored or forgotten.

Revolution in Mind is a brilliant, engaging, and radically new work the first ever to account fully for the making of psychoanalysis. "
