 Archive Fever : A Freudian Impression (Religion and Postmodernism)
Freud and Beyond:  A History of Modern Psychoanalytic ThoughtFreud and Beyond : A History of Modern Psychoanalytic Thought by Stephen A. Mitchell, Margaret J. Black (Contributor).

Mitchell's review of the lasting importance and revolutionary impact of Sigmund Freud's psychoanalytical theories struck a deep cord within me. Informative, lucid and surprisingly well-paced, this history of the modern journey into the mind emerged as an abbreviated form of clinical therapy for the curious, yet, perhaps psychologically unsuspecting reader. I came out of this book feeling that I had spent years lying on a couch in Vienna.

Sigmund Freud:  Biography

Biography by Peter Landry at blupete.com.

Excerpt:

Freud was big on hypnosis, but it eventually took a second seat to another of his ideas, that of "free association." Freud placed much emphasis on infantile sexuality and emphasized that many of our problems in later life come from our relationships with our parents, the so-called Oedipus complex.2 The symptoms of neurosis, according to Freud, "are essentially substitute gratifications for unfulfilled sexual wishes." From Freud's teachings sprang a whole industry; which has milked, and continues to milk, most all of western society; as a sizable portion of the population goes about psychoanalyzing their fellows. This intrusive Freudian exercise, I might add, is carried out, mainly, at the expense of the hard working portion of the population who would hardly think they have any need for psychoanalysis themselves; nor, if they knew something of the subject, would they consider that anyone else needs it either, and certainly not at their expense.3 Some4 disagreed with Freud and his central emphasis on sexuality, but basically most practitioners of psychiatry today would agree with fundamental Freudian principles. Freud's work effected a profound revolution in man's attitude towards, and comprehension of, his mental processes, constituting after Copernicus and Darwin, a third blow to man's self-esteem.
