At just the right moment when many people are ready to throw Freud onto the ash-heap of intellectual history, "Sex on the Couch" rescues from Freud's theories a fascinating series of reflections on the nature of sexuality and gender. Richard Boothby forces us to reconsider our concepts of masculinity and femininity by placing them in relation to Freud's theory of Life and Death drives. He explores feminist critiques of Freud to reveal new and specific responses to questions that have shaped contemporary understanding of feminism and psychoanalysis. Boothby's Freud, far from being passé, provides insights that enrich our understanding of modernity and its distinctive character. In a refreshingly readable style, Richard Boothby writes not only for the scholarly reader, but for the student and lay reader curious about Freud's theories and their use in contemporary world.
