about this book

In Freud: Conflict and Culture, Michael S. Roth presents eithgteen essays on the man who has become, in W.H. Auden's phrase, "a whole climate of opinion."

This fascinating collections explores Freud's work, the absorption of his theories into mainstream culture, and his hotly contested legacy. Oliver Sacks demonstrates how Freud's early studies anticipated contemporary neuropsychology. Scholar Muriel Dimen reveals a paradoxical liaison between psychoanalysis and feminism. Art Spiegelman (Maus) provides a comic strip that explores Freud's ideas about humor. And Peter Kramer (Listening to Prozac) projects how future generations may look upon the man who, along with Marx, Darwin, and Einstein, shaped an era. By turns moving, contentious, and amusing, Freud: Conflict and Culture boasts a body of work as eclectic and engaging as the revolutionary genius himself.
