Freud and Nietzsche

Front Cover
A&C Black, Dec 12, 2006 - Philosophy - 238 pages

But what was Nietzsche to Freud--an intuitive anticipation, a precursor, a rival psychologist? Assoun moves beyond the seduction of these attractive analogues to a deeper analysis of the relation between these two figures.

My patient friends, this book desires for itself only perfect readers and philologists: learn to read me well!
