Description - Freud as Philosopher by Richard Boothby
Using Jacques Lacan's work as a key, this volume reassesses the philosophical significance of Freud's most ambitious general theory of mental functioning: metapsychology. Richard Boothby argues that this theory has been misunderstood, and that Freud's impact on philosophy has been unjustly muted.
