Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"A landmark in the study of the historical origins of psychoanalysis." — American Journal of Psychiatry

A pioneering scholarly investigation into the intersection of personality and cultural history, this study asserts that Freudian psychology is rooted in Judaism — particularly, in the mysticism of the Kabbalah. It examines how Freuds Jewish heritage contributed, either consciously or unconsciously, to his psychological theories and offers an essential tool for understanding the foundations of modern psychoanalysis.

Book News Annotation:

Psychologist Bakan presents new evidence that has arisen since the 1958 edition, supporting his argument that Freud consciously drew on Jewish mysticism in developing psychoanalysis. He particularly focuses on ideas on interpretative methods and the nature of anti- Semitism in the Kabbala classic, Zohar, that Freud drew from in such writings as Moses and Monotheism. This edition reprints the 1965 Schocken paperback published by D. Van Nostrand.

Synopsis:

Bakan challenges the commonly held view of Freud that he was a patently secular, rationally and scientifically-orientated intellectual, educated in modern culture and with only a modicum of formal Jewish education. He argues that Freud was influenced in his major and revolutionary life work by a mystical tradition that he seemed to know little about, and which, as a mysticism, would be antithetical to science.
