Everyone agrees that Sigmund Freud has had a profound impact on Western life. But even today few people know much about his life and work beyond the legends that Freud and his adherents created, fostered,and repeated.The result is an enormous cross-disciplinary field characterized by contradcition and confusion. Only the experts could possibly make sense of it all- and not always, since no fieldis as throughly undercut by ideology, acrimony, and bad faith as psychoanalysis. "Speaking of Freud" collects the frank musings of some of the world's best critics of Freud, providing a convincing and coherent "case against Freud" that is as amusing as it is rigorously presented. Hailing from diverse academic backgrounds - History, Philosophy, Literary Criticism, Sociology, Psychotherapy, and Psychiatry - this diverse group includes renowned international figures such as Edward Shorter, Frank Sulloway, Frederick Crews, and Mikkel Borch-Jacobsen, as well as those who knew Freud and his family. Listen in on the critics and then decide for yourself whether or not 'Freud is dead'.
