Literature, Psychoanalysis and the New Sciences of Mind
At a time when psychoanalysis is attacked by biologists, psychologists and literary critics alike, this book offers a radical defence.
Literature, Psychoanalysis and the New Sciences of Mind gives a clear introduction to the theories of Freud and Jung, the strange linguistic rewriting of Freud by Jacques Lacan. It explores the extraordinary variety of ways in which these writings have been applied to literature and literary theory. But for the first time, they are put in the context of recent biological theories of mind and sexuality.
