Freud's women by Lisa Appignanesi( Book )

34 editions published between 1992 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"No modern writer has affected our views on women as powerfully as Sigmund Freud. And none has been so virulently attacked both for his theories of the feminine and for his alleged elevation of personal prejudice to the height of universal pronouncement. Libertarian, old-fashioned moralist, Victorian patriarch, prophet of polymorphous perversity - these are only some of the contradictory epithets Freud has borne." "True, the women in Freud's domestic life, with the exception of Anna, his Antigone, were conventional enough, as were many of his views on their role in society. Yet Freud's closest women friends were anything but conventional. From the writer and turn-of-the-century femme fatale Lou Andreas-Salome, to the socialist feminist Helene Deutsch, early theorist of femininity, to Princess Marie Bonaparte who moved from couch to royal court with amazing facility and became head of the French psychoanalytic movement, Freud's female friends and "pupils" were extraordinary. And then there were his patients - the famous and infamous cases of women crucial to his theories and his method of analytic investigation. In many ways psychoanalysis is as much their creation as that of the young Viennese doctor."--Jacket

Collect? Is a history of psychoanalysis possible? By taking nothing for granted and leaving no cliche of psychobabble - theoretical or popular - unturned, Forrester gives us a sense of the ethical surprises and epistemological riddles that a century of tumultuous psychoanalytical debate has often obscured. In these pages, we explore dreams, history, ethics, political theory, and the motor of psychoanalysis as a scientific movement

The seminar of Jacques Lacan by Jacques Lacan( Book )

8 editions published between 1988 and 1993 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A charismatic and controversial figure, Lacan is one of the most important thinkers of the twentieth century and his work has revolutionized linguistics, philosophy, literature, psychology, cultural and media studies. He gained his reputation as a lecturer, disseminating his ideas to audiences that included Jean-Paul Sartre and Luce Irigaray amongst other hugely influential names. "The Ethics of Psychoanalysis" is a transcript of his most important lecture series. Including influential readings of Sophocles' "Antigone" and Elizabethan courtly love poetry in relation to female sexuality, "The Ethics of Psychoanalysis" remains a powerful and controversial work that is still argued over today by the likes of Judith Butler and Slavoj Zizek
