Sigmund Freud: Explorer of the Unconscious

Overview


Sigmund Freud's influence on modern psychology and scholarly thought is incalculable. Yet the greatest exposure most students have to Freud's work comes from parodies, caricatures, and misrepresentations. Sigmund Freud fills this gap, tracing Freud's methods, goals, and the development of his theories, from his early studies of neural structures to his work as a philosopher of human civilization.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"In this beautifully crafted and well-illustrated new biography...[Muckenhoupt] tells most movingly the story of Freud's fascinating life and work.... This handsome volume should be intriguing not only to young adults and the general reader, but also (as an effective summary) to graduate students and professionals in the fields of mental health and the behavioral sciences."--Science Books & Films

"College-level readers will find [Sigmund Freud] worthwhile.... [Muckenhoupt's] writing is clear, and she confronts several of Freud's strengths and weaknesses evenhandedly.... Merits inclusion in public and school libraries."--Library Journal

"A balanced account of Freud's life, work, and times.... [A] good introduction to a still-controversial figure."--Kirkus Reviews

"A highly readable biography.... A fascinating account of the father of psychoanalysis, and the times in which the great Austrian doctor lived.... Will interest and inform anyone--adults included--wanting an introduction to Freud's life and a balanced treatment of his major theories."--Kliatt

School Library Journal
Gr 10 UpMuckenhoupt offers serious discussion of Freud's groundbreaking work in psychoanalysis and includes examples of some of his actual cases to illustrate his theories. His personal life, from his struggle with his Jewish identity to family relationships is explored and related to developments in his work. Freud's rise to the top of his field was not without false starts and failures, and the author is honest in her portrayal of a brilliant but often troubled person. This biography will be especially valuable for students looking for more than a simple chronology of the events and achievements of Freud's life. However, even those with little knowledge of the man will not be intimidated. The writing is clear and concise; terms of psychoanalysis are defined and explained. Many black-and-white photographs and reproductions help to connect the names mentioned in the text with the faces of Freud's family and contemporaries. A definite first choice for students researching the complex and often fascinating founder of psychoanalysis.Carol Fazioli, Cardinal Hayes Library, Manhattan College, NY
Kirkus Reviews
Muckenhoupt gives a balanced account of Freud's life, work, and times, describing his childhood, studies, mentors, experiments, theories, family life, publications, and feuds, and, in an epilogue, provides some historical perspective. This title in the Oxford Portraits of Science series is a readable biography, but what readers will find memorable is the time in which Freud lived. The author explains that scientific method was in its infancy. Treatments included hypnosis, hydrotherapy (water therapy), cocaine therapy, and faradization (electric shock). Freud struggled to gain fame for his treatment of female "hysterics," an illness that has ceased to exist; he practiced medicine at a time when a friend and mentor postulated the "nasal-genital theory." Muckenhoupt recounts some of Freud's famous cases and methods, notably, allowing patients to use free association. Black-and-white photographs are used throughout this good introduction to a still-controversial figure.
