Ideas In Psychoanalysis
Edited by Ivan Ward, director of education
Freud Museum London
From the fictional 'Frazier' to self-help television, the exhibitionism of Big Brother or Bridget Jones's anxiety, psychoanalysis in one form or another is part of our everyday language and culture. But do we really know what these ideas mean? How do psychoanalysts understand the function of a Phobia? What is this thing, the Superego? What - really - is Perversion?
Icon's series of short, lively books - Ideas in Psychoanalysis - seeks to redress the balance. Edited by Ivan Ward, director of education at the Freud Museum, each title explains a psychoanalytic concept, its relevance to everyday life and its ability to illuminate the nature of human society and culture.
