About this Book

This much-awaited textbook makes accessible the ideas of one of the most important thinkers of our time, as well as indicating how Freud's theories are put into clinical practice today.

The collection of papers have been written by some of the most eminent psychoanalysts, both from Britain and abroad, who have made an original contribution to psychoanalysis. Each chapter introduces one of Freud's key texts, and links it to contemporary thinking in the field of psychoanalysis. The book combines a deep understanding of Freud's work with some of the most modern debates surrounding it.

This book will be of great value across a wide spectrum of courses in psychoanalysis, as well as to the scholar interested in psychoanalytic ideas.
