History and Psyche: Culture, Psychoanalysis, and the Past by Sally Alexander and Barbara Taylor
English | 2012 | ISBN: 0230113362, 0230113850 | 356 pages | PDF | 3 MB
The relationship between psychoanalysis and history is long-standing, productive and controversial. From Freud onward, psychoanalytic thinkers have looked to history for insights into the operations of the human mind. Historians have been more equivocal about the value of psychoanalysis for their discipline.
But recent decades have seen a growing interest in psychoanalysis across the Humanities. History and Psyche brings together some of the best work in this area, in essays by sixteen leading scholars. Topics explored include Luther and psychobiography, empathy and historical subjectivity, the political history of the Oedipus complex, and childhood in early modernity.
