Editorial Reviews

As the founding father of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud's contributions have extended beyond the realm of psychology, ingraining themselves into culture and society. In this audiobook, narrators Clifford Rose, David Graham, and Gary Hope deftly portray significant events in Freud's life, from his development of therapeutic techniques such as free association to his redefinition of sexuality to include its infantile forms, leading to his infamous theory of the Oedipus complex. The narrators have distinctive voices that catch the ear and ring with Freud's passion for his work and his conviction in his discoveries. Listeners will particularly enjoy their entertaining reenactment of Freud's dialogues with his colleagues and patients.

Publisher's Summary

Sigmund Freud will be remembered by most people for the "slip" that bears his name. A few more will associate him with dreams that have a meaning: usually of a sexual nature and filled with symbolism - particularly the phallic symbolism beloved by advertisers. In fact, Freud's work fills 24 volumes and ranges over topics from the anatomy of the brain to the structure of primitive tribes. However, the most far-reaching of Freud's contributions is arguably that of psychoanalysis. He developed it, claimed to have made staggering discoveries with it, and used these discoveries to propose theories about human behaviour that are still the subject of heated debate.
