Among the topics covered are: Freud's discovery that the human mind can only be studied through a partnership between observer and observed; how clinical evidence is made up of a unique mixture of subjective and objective; an observation on the way issues of identity affect not only individuals but classes of people; and an examination of the links between ego formation and institutions and traditions. Erikson also discusses the origins of ethics and looks at psychiatry as the pragmatic Western version of the universal journey to self-awareness.

    A bit dated

    A series of lectures about the early underpinnings of psychoanalytic thought...It gives the reader an overview of Freud's early discoveries, and an appreciation of the man's creativity...His ability to "notice' the significance of certain phenomena emanating from the unconscious, was a terrific gift..It has led to growth and freedom for millions crippled with psychological impairments..Yet, it is a bit old hat, and does nothing to bring the reader up to date about treatments built from the original therapies..Useful, but not essential..
