Freud, Biologist of the Mind: Beyond the Psychoanalytic Legend

Front Cover
Harvard University Press, Jan 1, 1992 - Biography & Autobiography - 612 pages
0 Reviews

In this monumental intellectual biography, Frank Sulloway demonstrates that Freud always remained, despite his denials, a biologist of the mind; and, indeed, that his most creative inspirations derived significantly from biology. Sulloway analyzes the political aspects of the complex myth of Freud as psychoanalytic hero as it served to consolidate the analytic movement. This is a revolutionary reassessment of Freud and psychoanalysis.
