Hysteria was once simultaneously physical illness, an illness without physical symptoms - and something unmistakably feminine. Freud and Charcot diagnosed Hysteria as psychological trauma manifesting itself through the body - its cure resting between therapy and medicine. Ideas in Psychoanalysis: Hysteria examines, too, some of the "hysterical identifications" of our time, from dictatorship to pop culture.
