about

Has Sigmund Freud been seriously misunderstood? The author of The Uses of Enchantment argues that mistranslation has distorted Freud's work in English and led students to see a system intended to cooperate flexibly with individual needs as a set of rigid rules to be applied by external authority. This provocative argument cuts through the myths to reveal a greater, more compassoinate and also far more disturbing figure.

"VITAL...an eloquent attempt to reclaim Freud's reputation in America." —THE NEW YORK TIMES
 
"Lucid and provocative." —THE LOS ANGELES TIMES BOOK REVIEW
