Reviews and Endorsements

'This book demonstrates that S. Freud's adolescent crisis is far from being calm, despite the appearance that he gave of it. It is certainly upsetting, rich in emotions, creative, questioning. Was adolescence so disliked because it was at the very origin of Freudian thought? To what extent did Freud try all his life to find his buried adolescence? In the same way, an adolescence refused in its difficulty could, in its time, become a privileged source of metapsychology and its technical corollaries. The richness of the "biographic-theoretical" field opened by Florian Houssier's book is thus an event.' - Philippe Gutton, Psychiatrist, Psychoanalyst, University Professor, Founder of the Revue Adolescence (France).
