9780140600339: Triumph of the Therapeutic, The: Uses of Faith After Freud (University Books)

"Philip Rieff has become out most learned and provocative critic of psychoanalytic thinking and of the compelling mind and character of its first proponent. Rieff's "Freud: The Mind of the Moralist" remains the sharpest exegesis yet to be done on the moral and intellectual implications of Freud's work. It was a critical masterpiece, worthy of the man who inspired it; and it is now followed by a work that suffers not at all in comparison. No review can do justice to the richness of "The Triumph of the Therapeutic,""--Robert Coles, "New York Times Book Review ""A triumphantly successful exploration of certain key themes in cultural life. Rieff's incidental remarks are not only illuminating in themselves; they suggest whole new areas of inquiry."--Alasdair MacIntyre, "Guardian"
