Audible Editor Reviews

This special edition of Scientific American Mind celebrates the 150th anniversary of the birth of Sigmund Freud, the founding father of psychoanalysis. "Freud Returns", by neuropsychologist Mark Solms looks at Freud's reemergence in the 21st Century and how modern biological research on the brain seems to integrate well with his psychological theories. Three other articles are included that paint a varied perspective on Freud's work; disparaging his modern influence; remarking on his departure from neuroscience in conjuncture to working with sexually frustrated women; and finally looking toward the future of psychotherapy. This audio edition is narrated with an engaging self-assurance that will keep your ego attentive on the couch even if your id begins to wander.

Publisher's Summary

On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Sigmund Freud's birth, Scientific American Mind examines the lasting, controversial legacy of the Father of Psychoanalysis.

This special report contains four articles. In "Freud Returns," neuropsychologist Mark Solms writes that biological descriptions of the brain may fit together best when integrated by psychological theories that Freud sketched a century ago. Then, J. Allan Hobson of Harvard Medical School offers an opposing view in "Freud Returns? Like a Bad Dream." Next, in "Neurotic About Neurons," Steve Ayan says Freud's theories sprang directly from neuroscience, until he began interrogating sexually-frustrated women. And in the final article, "Psychotherapy on Trial," Hal Arkowitz of the University of Arizona and Scott Lilienfeld of Emory University discuss the current debate over empirically supported therapies.
