Does Freud still have something to teach us? The premise of this volume is that he most certainly does. Approaching Freud from not only the philosophical but also historical, psychoanalytical, anthropological, and sociological perspectives, the contributors show us how Freud gave us a new and powerful way to think about human thought and action. They consider the context of Freud's thought and the structure of his arguments to reveal how he made sense of ranges of experience generally neglected or misunderstood. All the central topics of Freud's work from sexuality and neurosis to morality, art, and culture are covered.

Freud: the psychoarcheology of civilizations
Seduced and abandoned: the rise and fall of Freud's seduction theory
Freud's androids
The interpretation of dreams
The unconscious
The development of vicissitudes of Freud's ideas on the Oedipus complex
Freud and perversion
Morality and the internalized other
Freud on women
Freud and the understanding of art
Freud's anthropology: a reading of the 'cultural books'
Freud's later theory of civilization: changes and implications
In fairness to Freud: a critical notice of The Foundations of Psychoanalysis
