Cassandras Daughter : A History of Psychoanalysis in Europe and America

Joseph Schwartz

Schwartz answers the accusation that this theory is unscientific and therefore unreliable by drawing together the great events of the century and the theoretical shifts and developments of psychoanalysis to describe the attempts of the last 100 years to understand the workings of the subjective mind.

Summary

This work presents a complete history of psychoanalysis from its origins in 19th-century medical science to the end of the 20th century. The origins of psychoanalysis as well as the more immediate influences on Freud are explored, as is the way the discipline he founded has developed and changed. The influence of psychoanalysis spreads far beyond psychotherapy and Joe Schwartz shows the way it has effected literature, criticism and feminism and medicine.
