This incisive reappraisal of Freud's clinical technique challenges conventional notions on psychoanalysis and reveals a more personal and humanistic side of Freud. It argues for a return to a forgetten, inherently philisophical Freud, whose views on the human condition were rooted in the Greek model of truth, ethics and our relationship to reality.
