1 Review
Freud’s concepts have become a part of our psychological vocabulary: unconscious thoughts and feelings, conflict, the meaning of dreams, the sensuality of childhood. But psychoanalytic thinking has undergone an enormous expansion and transformation over the past fifty years. WithFreud and Beyond,Stephen A. Mitchell and Margaret J. Black make contemporary psychoanalytic thinking--the body of work that has been done since Freud--available for the first time. Richly illustrated with case examples, this lively, jargon-free introduction makes modern psychoanalytic thought accessible at last.
