Freud's Paranoid Quest: Psychoanalysis and Modern Suspicion

Freud's Paranoid Quest: Psychoanalysis and Modern Suspicion by John C. Farrell
English | 1996 | ISBN: 0814726496 | 288 Pages | PDF | 65.5 MB

In Freud's Paranoid Quest, John Farrell analyzes the personality and thought of Sigmund Freud in order to give insight into modernity's paranoid character and into the true nature of Freudian psychoanalysis. John Farrell's Freud is not the path-breaking psychologist he claimed to be, but the fashioner and prisoner of a total system of suspicion. The most gifted of paranoids, Freud deployed this system as a self-heroizing myth and a compelling historical ideology.
