Book Description

Psychoanalysis is often associated with Sigmund Freud; but this comparison ignores the wide range of clinical practices; observational methods; general theories; and cross-pollinations with other disciplines that characterize contemporary psychoanalytic work. Central psychoanalytic concepts to do with unconscious motivation; primitive forms of thought; defence mechanisms; and transference form a backbone of today’s richly textured contemporary clinical psychological practice.

In this landmark collection on  and psychoanalysis and philosophy; leading researchers provide an evaluative overview of current thinking. Written at the interface between these two disciplines; The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy and Psychoanalysis; (PDF) contains original contributions that will shape the future of debate. With 34 chapters divided into eight sections covering history; clinical theory; aesthetics;  phenomenology; science; religion; ethics; political and social theory; this Oxford Handbook displays the enduring depth; breadth; and promise of blending philosophical and psychoanalytic thought.

Anyone interested in the philosophical implications of psychoanalysis; along with philosophical challenges to and re-statements of psychoanalysis; will want to consult this ebook. It will be an essential resource for academic researchers; psychoanalysts and other mental health professionals; trainees and graduates.
