            Sigmund Freud: The Basics is an easy-to-read introduction to the life and ideas of Sigmund Freud, the founder of psychoanalysis and a key figure in the history of psychology. Janet Sayers provides an accessible overview of Freud's early life and work, beginning with his childhood.... Her book includes the stories of his most famous patients: Dora, Little Hans, the Rat Man, Judge Schreber and the Wolf Man. It also discusses Freud's key ideas such as the Oedipus complex and psychoanalytic treatment. Sayers then covers Freud's later work, with a description of his observations about depression, trauma and the death instinct, as well as his 1923 theory of the id, ego, and superego. The book includes a glossary of key terms and concludes with examples of how psychoanalysis has been applied to the study of art, literature, film, anthropology, religion, sociology, gender politics and racism. Sigmund Freud: The Basics offers an essential introduction for students from all backgrounds seeking to understand Freud's ideas and for general readers with an interest in psychology. For those already familiar with Freudian ideas, it offers a helpful guide to their interdisciplinary applications and context not least today.

            Viktor Frankl's Search for Meaning: An Emblematic 20th-Century Life
             

            Viktor Frankl's Search for Meaning: An Emblematic 20th-Century Life (Trade Paperback / Paperback, Abridged edition)

            First published in 1946, Viktor Frankl's memoir Man's Search for Meaning remains one of the most influential books of the last century, selling over ten million copies worldwide and having been embraced by successive generations of readers captivated by its author's philosophical... journey in the wake of the Holocaust. This long-overdue reappraisal examines Frankl's life and intellectual evolution anew, from his early immersion in Freudian and Adlerian theory to his development of the third Viennese school amid the National Socialist domination of professional psychotherapy. It teases out the fascinating contradictions and ambiguities surrounding his years in Nazi Europe, including the experimental medical procedures he oversaw in occupied Austria and a stopover at the Auschwitz concentration camp far briefer than has commonly been assumed. Throughout, author Timothy Pytell gives a penetrating but fair-minded account of a man whose paradoxical embodiment of asceticism, celebrity, tradition, and self-reinvention drew together the complex strands of twentieth-century intellectual life.

            Born After: Reckoning with the German Past (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            What do we do with pasts we inherit that carry shame? A major and original contribution to thinking about and grappling with the legacies of German and Nazi history, this book reflects on the relationship between history and memory through the personal narrative of a postwar Germ...an intellectual. Arguing that the pasts that haunt usare shaped both by the things people did and suffered and the affective traces the past leaves in memory, Born After is a powerful meditation on questions of guilt, complicity, loss, and longing. With bracing honesty and without sentimentality, Bammer draws on her own family story to think anew about a history that we have come to accept as familiar. Inflecting questions about history with questions about ethics, her book speaks to all those concerned with historical pasts that remain unreconciled.

            This book is for people who are curious about what psychoanalysis has to say about how we all function and behave in our everyday encounters and relationships with one another.It is for those who are interested in the unconscious aspects of the mind, and the impact of emotional e...xperience on our daily decisions, both small and large.It is different from other introductions to psychoanalysis in that it is not intended necessarily for people who hope to become counsellors or psychotherapists themselves, but for people who are interested in, and perhaps puzzled by, the behaviour of colleagues or friends or family members.It would be helpful to people who's work involves managing others and to those who work with vulnerable or challenging adults or young people in a variety of situations.It would be useful, and interesting, to the student who is thinking about including the study of psychoanalysis in their academic career.This book consists of 8 chapters of about 5000 words each, and a timeline that shows the place of the subject of each chapter in the historical development of psychoanalysis.The chapters cover the basic concepts that can help in understanding everyday encounters, and in so doing can lead to wiser and more considered decision making.
