Publisher Comments:

Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis, developed a totally new way of looking at human nature. Only now, with the hindsight of the half-century since his death, can we assess his true legacy to current thought. As an experienced psychiatrist himself, Anthony Storr offers a lucid and objective look at Freud's major theories, evaluating whether they have stood the test of time, and in the process examines Freud himself in light of his own ideas. An excellent introduction to Freud's work, this book will appeal to all those broadly curious about psychoanalysis, psychology, and sociology.

About the Series: Combining authority with wit, accessibility, and style, Very Short Introductions offer an introduction to some of life's most interesting topics. Written by experts for the newcomer, they demonstrate the finest contemporary thinking about the central problems and issues in hundreds of key topics, from philosophy to Freud, quantum theory to Islam.

Synopsis:

An Analysis of a Case of Hysteria, often referred to as andldquo;Dora,andrdquo; is one of Sigmund Freudandrsquo;s most influential case studies. Focusing on the psychoanalystandrsquo;s investigation of the emotional life of a suicidal 18-year-old, it offers a fascinating insight into his methods of working and interpretation. Freudandrsquo;s analysis of the patient, who he refers to as Dora, leads him to uncover a remarkably troubled and conflict-ridden family history. In Hysteria, Richard Appignanesi and Oscar Zarate bring to life this landmark of psychoanalysis, capturing the gripping story of a deeply troubled but fascinating patient. This beautifully drawn guide shows Freud developing his theory of dream interpretation, combining it with his studies of hysteria and sexual development, to create one of the most influential and remarkable works of psychoanalysis ever committed to paper.
