9780748639762: The Edinburgh International Encyclopaedia of Psychoanalysis

The one thousand entries in the Encyclopaedia provide the best single volume coverage of psychoanalysis available. With its wide, objective and catholic vision, the Encyclopaedia demonstrates that psychoanalysis is a single discipline, very much greater than any particular movement, school or individual, including its founder, Freud. Thus the book contains authoritative entries on all the most important authors, practitioners, concepts, movements, schools, debates and controversies in psychoanalysis and its offspring, past and present.

A précis essay is given of each school amplified by explanations of all key terms within that school. Entries are alphabetically arranged, fully cross-referenced, many with suggestions for further reading. Most importantly the book features both contributors and entries reflecting the various disciplines such as Feminism, Literature, Philosophy, Art and Anthropology that have contributed to the development of psychoanalysis or been influenced by it.
Besides an immense array of topics on psychoanalysis contributed by psychoanalysts themselves, there are also entries on many topics written by psychiatrists, psychologists, psychotherapists, philosophers, medical researchers, historians, literary critics, anthropologists, linguists and other specialists. International in scope, the Encyclopaedia also draws on a geographically wide field of authors.

About the Author:


Ross Skelton is Senior Lecturer in Philosophy and Psychoanalytic Studies at the Trinity College Dublin

Review:

Besides admirably embracing the diversity of the field and its figures, this volume is especially valuable for discovering the pervasive but oft unacknowledged influence of psychoanalytic thought in the humanities, social sciences, arts, religion, politics and philosophy.

(James Hillman, author of Archetypal Psychology)
