The discovery of the unconscious

£22.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

This classic work is a monumental, integrated view of man's search for an understanding of the inner reaches of the mind. In an account that is both exhaustive and exciting, the distinguished psychiatrist and author demonstrates the long chain of development - through the exorcists, magnetists, and hypnotists - that led to the fruition of dynamic psychiatry in the psychological systems of Janet, Freud, Adler, and Jung. "A major contribution to the literature of dynamic psychiatry and one that will be a source book and reference volume for many years to come. The author's sensitivity to the spirit of different historical periods and his familiarity with the lesser as well as the major figures of each era - in the domains of arts and letters as well as science and medicine - is unceasingly impressive." "In all respects a masterly work. a book whose richness, accuracy, and rigor are allied with an exceptional open-mindedness - containing such a wealth of material that it cannot possibly be summarised and analysed in the usual way." "With admirable scholarship and brilliantly lucid style Dr.Ellenberger has integrated history, interpretation, opinion, judgement, assessment, and insight."
