--Anthony Elliott, author of "Psychoanalytic Theory: An
Over 100 years since its origins, psychoanalysis continues to be
a key source of insights across the humanities and social sciences.
Being well-versed in psychoanalytic concepts is a crucial element
in cultural literacy today.
Key Concepts in Psychoanalysis accessibly introduces the core
psychoanalytic concepts. In contrast to existing dictionaries, the
volume does not simply offer cursory definitions, and it is not
overly entrenched in a particular psychoanalytic tradition.
Providing short, reader-friendly descriptions of each concept,
Key Concepts in Psychoanalysis shows both its place in the field as
well its more general cultural usage. It is not simply a reference
book, but can be read cover to cover to provide an overview of the
therapeutic and cultural uses of central terms. Concepts are
introduced in ways which make them truly available to a non-expert
readership and to beginning students.
Examples of concepts introduced include: unconscious,
repression, projection, Oedipus complex, interpretation,
resistance, and transference.
