Basic Freud: Psychoanalytic Thought for the Twenty First Century Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Basic Freud, noted psychologist Michael Kahn shows that, even in the age of psychopharmaceuticals and cognitive therapy, Freud's insights into the unconscious remain unsurpassed tools for understanding our behaviors, motivations, and emotions. In a style accessible to any lay reader or beginning student in psychology, Kahn presents key ideas such as the Oedipus complex, the repetition compulsion, guilt, anxiety, and defense mechanisms, along with recent research that has supported or expanded Freud's findings. He also presents case studies from his own work as a psychotherapist to show how Freudian thought has been instrumental in helping patients discover who they are and escape from destructive patterns. Readers aware of Freud's ideas and those discovering them for the first time will benefit from Kahn's fresh, informed, and unpretentious approach.

Book News Annotation:

Kahn (emeritus, U. of California) draws on case studies from his own clinical practice to promote Freudian psychoanalysis as a proper tool for psychologists. In chapters devoted to particular Freudian concepts, he discusses the unconscious, sexual development and the Oedipus complex, the repetition complex, anxiety, guilt, and defense mechanisms. While acknowledging flaws in Freud's work, he believes the above concepts still offer powerful explanatory tools.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Ideal for lay readers, students, and professionals, a highly readable reintroduction to Freud's theories of the unconscious that demonstrates why they are still indispensable to understanding ourselves and the way we behave.
