Freud, Politics and Civilisation: an essay


Add your own review!

Overview

FREUD, POLITICS and CIVILISATION is an essay outlining the context in which Sigmund Freud developed psychoanalysis. The essay counters an imputation that he was apolitical. It briefly considers problems introduced by the translation of his writings, some commentators' unfamiliarity with the primary texts and disparities in the quality of debate about his work. It notes the frequent disregard for the political setting in which Freud, a Jew in unfriendly times, managed to keep on writing and working as a psychoanalyst.The author, Patricia Morris PhD, is a psychoanalytic psychotherapist based in London, England. Her essay FREUD, POLITICS and CIVILISATION provides some historical and political background to the theory underpinning her book LOVE & SEX: FIFTY THERAPY LESSONS, ideas gathered while listening to patients speak about their intimate relationships. Her most recent books are ALBERT SCHWEITZER: THE DIFFICULTY OF DOING GOOD and ALBERT SCHWEITZER: COLD WAR CASUALTY. They explore the work and legacy of Dr. Albert Schweitzer, the Nobel Peace Prize winner and CND progenitor who established a hospital for hunter-gatherers in central Africa._____________________ [The essay, FREUD, POLITICS & CIVILISATION] . . . provides a very useful argument about Freud's political theories, set in the context of his real-life situation in the cauldron of Vienna. - Dr Frederick Mulder, CBE.____________________________
