Product Description

Review

'This rich and interesting collection will provide an essential resource for those wanting to explore creative encounters between psychoanalysis and history.' - Radical Philosophy
 
"For a century psychoanalysts have carefully listened to their patient's accounts of their past and together have constructed 'a history.' This volume has brilliantly transformed that past into a rich and moving account of psychoanalytical historiography." - Christopher Bollas, psychoanalyst

"The authors of these provocative and wonderfully inviting essays have put psychoanalysis back on the historical agenda: they show the pertinence of psychoanalysis for history writing today and at the same time provide important new historical perspectives on the articulation of psychoanalysis as a method." -  Lynn Hunt, Eugen Weber Professor of Modern European History, UCLA, USA

Product Description

The relationship between psychoanalysis and history is long-standing, productive and controversial. From Freud onward, psychoanalytic thinkers have looked to history for insights into the operations of the human mind. Historians have been more equivocal about the value of psychoanalysis for their discipline. But recent decades have seen a growing interest in psychoanalysis across the Humanities. History and Psyche brings together some of the best work in this area, in essays by sixteen leading scholars including Lyndal Roper, Michael Roth, Luisa Passerini, Adam Phillips and Peter Burke. Topics explored include Luther and psychobiography, empathy and historical subjectivity, the political history of the Oedipus complex, and childhood in early modernity.
