This unique volume brings together contributions from experts who are able to introduce both the neophyte and the scholar to important faucets of Freud's life and work. The gross misconceptions and distortions of Freud and his ideas which have prevailed in many circles are here dispelled by scholars. Originally delivered at a symposium sponsored by the Freud literary heritage Foundation in cooperation with The Institute of Pennsylvania Hospital, the contributions to "Understanding Freud" provide us with a clear look at perhaps the most important mind of this century.
