Freud and Oedipus reassesses Freud's central concept of the Oedipus complex from the interlocking perceptives of biography, intellectual history, and Greek tragedy. Drawing on a wealth of primary and secondary materials, Peter Rudnytsky establishes how Freud reached his epochal formulation through his own self-analysis and clinical work. He then places Freud's discoveries in the context of nineteenth-century German intellectual and literary history. Finally, he demonstrates how many of Freud's insights are foreshadowed in Sophocles' "Oedipus the King" and discusses the psychoanalytic and structuralist interpretation of Sophocles' Oedipus cycle as a whole.
