Becoming Freud  - a new book on Sigmund Freud’s early life

A review in the New Yorker of psychoanalyst Philip Adams new biography of Freud called “Becoming Freud” which looks at the young Sigmund and the influences of his time:

 “If there’s a big idea in “Becoming Freud,” it’s that psychoanalysis is about communication—about what Phillips calls “sociability”—more than it’s about a cure. It’s a way of helping people speak for themselves (or of helping them figure out how they are already speaking).”

Joshua Rothman from the New Yorker
