Psychoanalysis has always grappled with its Jewish origins, sometimes celebrating them and sometimes trying to escape or deny them. Through exploration of Freud's Jewish identity, the fate of psychoanalysis in Germany under the Nazis, and psychoanalytic theories of anti-Semitism, Hate and the 'Jewish Science' examines the significance of the Jewish connections with psychoanalysis and what that can tell us about political and psychological resistance, anti-Semitism and racism. The book offers a lively and disturbing account both of how psychoanalysis can be used in the struggle against racism and anti-Semitism, and of how it can become complicit with these same oppressive practices.
