Based on the premise that Freud has been misunderstood the author examines the key words that Freud used to express some of his most original ideas, suggesting why he chose them what he meant by them, and the frequent failure of his English translators to catch their full significance. Having survived Auschwitz, the author wrote about his experiences in "The Informed Heart" and he also wrote "Uses of Enchantment".
