The Seductions of Psychoanalysis reflects on the history of psychoanalysis, its conceptual foundations and its relation to other disciplines. John Forrester probes the origins of psychoanalysis and its most beguiling concept, the transference, which is at once its institutional axis and experimental core. He explores the most seductive of all recent psychoanalytic traditions, that inspired by Jacques Lacan, whose radical questioning of psychoanalytic effects has been continued implicitly by Michel Foucault and explicitly by Jacques Derrida. Other key questions addressed include the significance of speech in the talking cure, and the relationship between the 'real' of psychoanalysis and the fictionality of the 'truth' it offers. Dr Forrester also focuses on the relationship between psychoanalysis and the feminine, on analysis and gossip, on the borderline of seduction and rape, and on the women who have played such a crucial role in the history of psychoanalysis, as patients, analysts or both.

Book Description:

An exploration of the historical development of psychoanalysis and its most intriguing concept, the transference, in accordance with the respective traditions inspired by Freud, Lacan and Derrida.

Review:

"Forrester interprets and develops Freud in extremely interesting ways, describing the discursive richness, intensity, and difficulties inherent in the 'analytic position' and vividly portraying the nature and structure of psychoanalytic discourse....The section on Lacan is especially clear....This excellent collection of essays is recommended...."
