Narcissus and Oedipus: The Children of Psychoanalysis

Synopsis

Freud organised the theory of the child's journey to adulthood around the myths of Narcissus and Oedipus. In this intelligent study, the author re-examines these myths to see if a radical reinterpretation of them will give birth to new sets of images through which psychoanalysts can contemplate the contemporary patient.
