It provides a rich source of ideas for therapeutic practice, while offering dramatic insights for the study of culture and society. This comprehensive review of the field: Explores the birth of psychoanalysis, taking the reader step by step through Freud's original ideas and how they developed and evolved. Provides a clear account of fundamental psychoanalytic concepts. Discusses the different schools of psychoanalysis that have emerged since Freud. Illustrates the wider applications of psychoanalytic ideas across film, literature and politics.
