Throughout history, philosophers have relentlessly pursued what may be called "inaccessible domains." This book explores how the traditions of existential phenomenology and Eastern philosophy, in their very different approaches to this pursuit, relate to Freudian psychoanalysis. A clear, succinct, and systematic account of the philosophical presuppositions of psychoanalytic theory and practice, this work offers a deeper and richer understanding and appreciation of Freudian thought, as well as its antecedents and influences. With its unique perspective on Freud's work, 'Apprehending the Inaccessible' puts readers in a better position to appreciate his contributions and evaluate the relationship between his and other philosophical world views.
