Part of the Emotions, Personality, and Psychotherapy book series (EPPS, volume 1)


This book asks the question: What has become of Freud’s major discoveries and hypotheses in the light of nearly a century of subsequent research? Freud’s impact on twentieth-century thinking is literally immeasurable. It ranges from the flowering of the modern psychological novel to anthropologists’ hypotheses about child-rearing practices as predictors of the severity of initiation rites. Why, then, a book that seeks to assess the immeasurable outcome of Freud’s work?
