در مقدمهی این کتاب به سرنوشت آدمهایی که فروید میخوانند به طرز دقیقی اشاره شده. اینکه چنین آدمهایی بعد از خواندن فروید دیگر هرگز نمیتوانند بدون تجزیه و تحلیلهایی فرویدوار در ذهنشان از کنشها و رفتارهای خودشان و دیگران بگذرند و به نظرم این یک حقیقت دربارهی همهی خوانندههای آثار فروید است. فروید خوانندههایاش را به راههایی بدون بازگشت میبرد که در عین ابهام، جالب و حیرتانگیزند.

کتاب با همهی فشردگی و خلاصه بودنش تا حدودی میتوانست قانعم کند که خب قرار نیست همهچیز را دربارهی نظریات و آراء فروید بدانم بلکه
البته خواندن مستقیم آثار و مقالات فروید را ترجیح می دهم ولی این کتاب هم بد نبود و برخی مفاهیم مثل رانه مرگ و لیبیدو و مالیخولیا و ارتباط سادیسم و مازوخیسم با این دو رانه را خوب توضیح و بسط داده مخصوصا که سراغ برخی آثار ادبی هم می رود چون جاش کوهن مولف این کتاب در اصل استاد ادبیات تطبیقی است

فصل های این کتاب عبارتند از

یادداشتب انتقادی درباب آرای زیگموند فروید
1. مبادی هیستریایی
2. ناخودآگاه
3. ظرافت و ذکاوت ناخودآگاه - خواب ها و رویا
4. ناخودآگاه در قالب کمدی
5. نه
6. غریب مضاعف
7. ابژه ی مبهم میل

نميدونم مشكل از نويسنده بود يا مترجم ولي متن اصلن روان نيست. با اين حال براي شناختن اجمالي فرويد خوبه.

براي آشنايي اوليه با فرويد، كافي و مناسب بود.

I Finally understood what Freud thought about ( a little)
May 29, 2014 Joshua rated it really liked it
This is a pretty good overview of Freud's writings. It covers many of his texts, including some rare ones, and offers a rather good interpretation of Freud. The only problem area is that the author sometimes slips into his own epistemic confusions over Freud's oeuvre and begins to slide into "his opinion about Freud"; however, it should be noted that it's very clear when he does this unlike far too many authors of secondary and tertiary texts. All-in-all, this is a pretty good read--and a very h ...more

Recommends it for: Psychology enthusiasts
Maybe I just don't get Freud. But, well, he WAS hugely influential. He's essentially the father of talk therapy, after all!

This book is a good, concise overview of some of his most important ideas, and covers dreams, identity, personality, therapy, and so on. Nothing terribly surprising, but definitely more than old ground and, fortunately, doesn't go too into what everyone always gets hung up on ("What do you mean, PSYCHOSEXUAL STAGES?").
