Psychoanalysis and Culture at the Millennium
This outstanding collection of essays explores the pervasive influence of psychoanalysis on culture and thought in the late twentieth century. Eminent contributors representing the fields of philosophy, history, anthropology, literature, art history, and psychoanalysis examine the scope and variety of Sigmund Freud's impact on the modern intellectual climate. They show how Freud and others who followed him have profoundly expanded our understanding of human nature.The contributors discuss the psychoanalytic value of picture books for the young child; the historical and social meanings of perversion; the gendered cultural geography of Freud's mind; current issues of nationalism; and a variety of other topics that reveal both the diversity and the unity of psychoanalysis at the approach of a new millennium.
