Description - Freud and Man's Soul by Bruno Bettelheim

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"
