Eros plays: parts & pieces from a left-handed psychology
Eros plays the unruly bastard in Freud's late metapsychology and the lead essay in this collection. The author establishes his motif by describing the uncanny coming of Eros and its unwelcome persistence in the writings of Sigmund Freud with particular attention to his two major books-The Interpretation of Dreams and Civilization and its Discontents. Offering a continuing invocation to Eros, these essays use literary allusions to encourage disorderly ways of thinking about psychology while teasing the related human needs for security, certainty, and control.
