Portada
A&C Black, Apr 29, 2005 - 224 páginas
Killing Freud takes the reader on a journey through the 20th century, tracing the work and influence of one of its
greatest icons, Sigmund Freud. A devastating critique, the book ranges across the strange case of Anna O, the hysteria
of Josef Breuer, the love of dogs, the Freud industry, the role of gossip and fiction, bad manners, pop psychology and
French philosophy, figure skating on thin ice, and contemporary therapy culture. A map to the Freudian minefield and a
masterful negotiation of high theory and low culture, Killing Freud is a witty and fearless revaluation of psychoanalysis
and its real place in 20th century history. It will appeal to anyone curious about the life of the mind after the death of
Freud.
"Its erudition offers sure-fire caviar." —The Independent, U.K.
"A flamboyant and hilarious satire of one of our most revered cultural institutions, Killing Freud combines impeccable
and truly original scholarship with great wit." —Ikkel Borch-Jacobsen, author of The Freudian Subject and
Remembering Anna O>
