9780140217360: New Introductory Lectures on Psychoanalysis (Pelican)

Freud published his "New Introductory Lectures on Psychoanalysis" in 1933, the year in which the Nazis publicly burned his books in Berlin. These lectures (though never intended for delivery) are cast in his lively rhetorical manner of speech and in places they recapitulate his established views (as, for instance, about dreams). But Freud also develops his newer concepts of id, ego, and super-ego as elements in the structure of the mind and explains his more recent conclusions about anxiety and the instincts and about the psychology of women. In addition, he applies his analytical method to such phenomena as telepathy and communism, among a number of subjects of indirect relevance to psychoanalysis.

Product Description:

Freud approved the overall editorial plan, specific renderings of key words and phrases, and the addition of valuable notes, from bibliographical and explanatory. Many of the translations were done by Strachey himself; the rest were prepared under his supervision. The result was to place the Standard Edition in a position of unquestioned supremacy over all other existing versions. Newly designed in a uniform format, each new paperback in the Standard Edition opens with a biographical essay on Freud's life and work -along with a note on the individual volume-by Peter Gay, Sterling Professor of History at Yale.

Product Description:

Patterned on his eminently successful "Introductory Lectures on Psycho-Analysis, " Freud's "New Introductory Lectures on Psycho-Analysis" takes full account of his elaborations in, and changes of mind about, psychoanalytic theory, and discusses a variety of central and controversial themes, including anxiety, the drives, occultism, female sexuality, and the question of a "Weltanschauung." It serves as an indispensable companion to the "Introductory Lectures."
