Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

This biography (a reprint from 1988) traces the life of Sigmund Freud while using his own methods of psychoanalysis to understand it. In addition, Gay places Freud's life in the context of the psychiatric profession, Austrian culture, European society, and Western culture. Besides recounting Freud's life and work, Gay discusses his therapy and technique, including specific cases, and his works such as The Interpretation of Dreams. The book contains a new foreword. Gay is a retired professor (Yale U.) and is the author of other books on Freud. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
