“Freud and the Post-Freudians” is a book that provides an overview of the major contributors to psychoanalysis after Sigmund Freud. James Strachey, who was a prominent British psychoanalyst, presents the key concepts and ideas of the psychoanalytic movement, including the works of Carl Jung, Alfred Adler, Melanie Klein, and Jacques Lacan.
The book is divided into three parts. The first part explores the ideas of Freud and his early followers, including the theory of the unconscious, the role of sexuality, and the development of the Oedipus complex. The second part examines the works of the post-Freudians, including the different interpretations of psychoanalysis and the development of new concepts such as object relations and ego psychology. The third part focuses on Lacan’s interpretation of Freud’s work and his ideas on language and the formation of the self.
Freud and the Post-Freudians is a valuable resource for those interested in the history of psychoanalysis and the development of its key ideas. It provides a clear and concise overview of the major contributors to the field and their respective theories, making it a useful introduction for those new to the subject.
