What Was Freud Thinking?A Short Historical Introduction to Freud's Theories and Therapies, by Barry Silverstein, is a unique introduction to Freud that offers a guided tour of Freud's original writings, placing his work in a historical context. Because Freud's work emerged in the context of the medical, scientific, intellectual, and political culture of late nineteenth century Vienna, and because he wrote in the German language of his time, any proper account of Freud's development of psychoanalysis must try to see the development of his work in the historical-cultural context in which it was created, and attempt to assess the meaning that Freud's theoretical constructs and clinical experiments had for him at the time of their creation. This account of the development of Freud's theories differs from other introductory texts on the subject in that it goes beyond simply explaining Freud's ideas as abstractions. What Was Freud Thinking? offers these unique features: * Places Freud's ideas within their historical context * Includes significant revisionist historical scholarship on Freud and his work * Relates Freud's theoretical work to his clinical work * Reveals the influences on Freud's thinking from the medical, philosophical, and intellectual culture of his time Other Features and Benefits include: * Freud's theories and clinical techniques presented in clear, lucid language throughout the text* Includes Freud's original writings, rather than paraphrases* Freud's work is presented chronologically in the historical context through which it evolved
