Overview

Viewpoints contains challenging essays on Freud, his fellows and critics, and on the contribution of modern figures such as Bruno Bettelheim, Thomas Azasz and Eric Berne. Charles Rycroft also pursues his enduring fascination with the place of memory and imagination in the work of artists and writers , such as Wilkie Collins, Rousseau and Sartre, and finally explores our puzzled conceptions of self hood and self awareness. Fluent, entertaining, imaginative and thought provoking, this collection confirms Rycroft as one of the most humane as well as the most distinguished of British psychoanalysts.
