Book Description

7 Jan 2014 Radical Thinkers
Banned by the Freud institute in Vienna, this controversial lecture eventually became Edward Said's final book. "Freud and the Non-European" builds on Said's abiding interest in the psychoanalyst's work to examine Freud's assumption that Moses was an Egyptian and from there explore the limits of identity. Such an unresolved, nuanced sense of identity, Said argues, might one day form the basis for a new understanding between Israelis and Palestinians.

Product Description

Review

"The kind of intellectual and moral subtlety that Said calls for is quickly trampled upon as nations are made and remade. But if it doesn't shape momentous events, it does help record them more scrupulously. Said's influence grows more fruitfully (if slowly) on fellow academics and writers, who can no longer hope to explain the contemporary world by putting the adjective 'ancient' before the noun 'hatred'; they have to work towards a better sense of the ever-changing historical conditions under which identities appear so eternal."--"Guardian"

"Said's treatment is though-provoking and addresses complex issues surrounding a work composed near the end of Freud's lifetime. Said provides an intriguing critique of Freud's work that is complemented by Rose's commentary."--"Multicultural Review"

"His reading of Freud's reading of the history of the Jewish people is undeniably brilliant, and persuades the reader yet further that the attempts by the Likudniks and fundamentalist Zionists to harden Judaism into one particular model of Zionism tied to one particular plot of land is both intellectually flawed and a betrayal of Judaism's pluralist history."--"Times Literary Supplement"

"I heard... Edward Said give "Freud and the Non-European" as a lecture at the Freud Museum in London... now it stands in grief and memory of that dear, good and great man as my pre-eminent book of the year."--Tom Paulin, "Guardian, Books of the Year 2003"

"The voice of the late Edward Said can still be heard in all its trenchant vitality."--Marina Warner, "Irish Times, Books of the Year 2003"
