Whose Freud? by Peter Brooks
Book DescriptionOne hundred years after the publication of The Interpretation of Dreams, Freud remains the most frequently cited author of our culture-and one of the most controversial. To some he is the presiding genius of modernity, to others the author of its symptomatic illnesses. The current position of psychoanalysis is very much at issue. Is it still valid as a theory of the mind? Have its therapeutic applications been rendered obsolete by drugs? Why does it still figure in debates about sexual identity, despite its rejection by many feminists? How does it contribute to cultural analysis? This book offers a new assessment of the status of psychoanalysis as a discipline and a discourse in contemporary culture. It brings together an exceptional group of theorists and practitioners, such partisans and critics of Freud as Frederic Crews, Judith Butler, Leo Bersani, Juliet Mitchell, Robert Jay Lifton, Richard Wollheim, Jonathan Lear, and others. These contributors, who are active in literature, philosophy, film, history, cultural studies, neuroscience, psychotherapy, and other disciplines, debate how psychoanalysis has enriched-and been enriched by-these fields.

Books By Author Peter Brooks
Human Comedy, Paperback (March 2014)
We think of Honore de Balzac as the author of long and fully upholstered novels, stitched together into the magnificent visionary document called The Human Comedy.
Humanities and Public Life, Paperback (March 2014)
This book tests the proposition that the humanities can, and at their best do, represent a commitment to ethical reading. And that this commitment, and the training and discipline of close reading that underlie it, represent something that the humanities need to bring to other fields: to professional training and to public life.
Enigmas of Identity, Paperback (November 2013)» View all books by Peter Brooks
Draws on literature, law, and psychoanalysis to examine important aspects of the emergence of identity as a peculiarly modern preoccupation. This book addresses the social, legal, and personal anxieties provoked by the rise of individualism and selfhood in modern culture.
