9780192854551: Freud: A Very Short Introduction

Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis, developed a totally new way of looking at human nature. Only now, with the hindsight of the half-century since his death, can we assess his true legacy to current thought. As an experienced psychiatrist himself, Anthony Storr offers a lucid and objective look at Freud's major theories, evaluating whether they have stood the test of time, and in the process examines Freud himself in light of his own ideas. An excellent introduction to Freud's work, this book will appeal to all those broadly curious about psychoanalysis, psychology, and sociology.

About the Series: Combining authority with wit, accessibility, and style, Very Short Introductions offer an introduction to some of life's most interesting topics. Written by experts for the newcomer, they demonstrate the finest contemporary thinking about the central problems and issues in hundreds of key topics, from philosophy to Freud, quantum theory to Islam.

About the Author:


Anthony Storr is Emeritus Fellow of Green College.

From AudioFile:

While listening to the ramblings of his rich and neurotic Viennese patients, Sigmund Freud developed theories on how the mind works and falters. His method of psychoanalysis and his proposed terms-Oedipus complex, ego, superego, and id, among others-revolutionized Western thought and psychiatric treatment. Surprisingly, he could never control his body's lethal addiction to tobacco, and the doctor underwent 22 operations for cancer of the palate. British narrator Neville Jason sets a slow pace suited for listeners needing to absorb challenging new terms and ideas. His reading style, which is characterized by theatrical pronunciation and a conversational tone, adds warmth to the otherwise cold rhetoric, elevating this audio-educational experience from dull to pleasant.
