Freud for Beginners

by Richard Osborne
£8.99   paperback  Zidane Press (2006)

Freud for Beginners by Richard Osborne Freud for Beginners provides a clear introduction to the ideas of pyschoanalysis and explains where they came from. It shows how Freud came to his great ideas on the Unconscious and dreams and how psychoanalysis developed in the early twentieth century. All of the major areas of Freud's work are covered, and the analysts he worked with, and fought with.
Unlike other introductions, however, this book also covers criticisms of Freud and the development of psychoanalysis after his death. Freud's influence on twentieth century culture is mapped out, and his influence on cultural studies, feminism, film theory and art are all examined. Accessible, but not simple, this work covers serious topics in a light-hearted but precise manner.
