Sartre’s Existential Psychoanalysis contemplates existentialism as it pertains to modern psychology
In Existential Psychoanalysis, Sartre looks at existentialism through the lens of modern psychology, with a particular interest in Freud’s theory of determinism. By framing the “human situation” around an existentialist psychoanalysis, the French philosopher contradicts Freud by claiming that humans are in full control of their choices, behaviors, and decisions - blatantly disagreeing with Freud’s idea of the unconscious libido. By marrying philosophy with psychology and arguing against another famous thinker (Freud), Sartre asks the listener to rethink the typical definition of existentialist theory.

For me this is a remarkably listenable reading performance. Neenan's pacing is perfect for this text. He sounds a bit like Anthony Hopkins.
Now, if only audible would hire him to read Minima Moralia by Adorno; One-Dimensional man by Herbert Marcuse; The making of Global Capital by Panitch and Gindin, etc. Audible, you can send me an email if you want my full request list. ; )
