Freud's Memory: Psychoanalysis, Mourning and the Stranger Self

Front Cover
Palgrave Macmillan, Sep 15, 2008 - Psychology - 256 pages
0 Reviews
A wide-ranging reading of Freud's work, this book focuses on Freud's scientifically discredited ideas about inherited memory in relation both to poststructuralist debates about mourning, and to certain uncanny figurative traits in his writing. Freud's Memory argues for an enriched understanding of the strangenesses in Freud rather than any denunciation of psychoanalysis as a bogus explanatory method.
