Présentation de l'éditeur

Becoming Freud is the story of the young Freud—Freud up until the age of fifty—that incorporates all of Freud’s many misgivings about the art of biography. Freud invented a psychological treatment that involved the telling and revising of life stories, but he was himself skeptical of the writing of such stories. In this biography, Adam Phillips, whom the New Yorker calls “Britain’s foremost psychoanalytical writer,” emphasizes the largely and inevitably undocumented story of Freud’s earliest years as the oldest—and favored—son of Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe and suggests that the psychoanalysis Freud invented was, among many other things, a psychology of the immigrant—increasingly, of course, everybody’s status in the modern world.
Psychoanalysis was also Freud’s way of coming to terms with the fate of the Jews in Europe in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. So as well as incorporating the writings of Freud and his contemporaries, Becoming Freud also uses the work of historians of the Jews in Europe in this significant period in their lives, a period of unprecedented political freedom and mounting persecution. Phillips concludes by speculating what psychoanalysis might have become if Freud had died in 1906, before the emergence of a psychoanalytic movement over which he had to preside.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A biography that champions the young, exciting Freud. 8 août 2014
Par The Reluctant Psychoanalyst - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
Adam Phillips’ slender biography of Freud published this year (2014) and titled “Becoming Freud” is one that I was quite intrigued to read. It is brief, written by an analyst who is also the editor of the new Penguin Standard Edition of Freud – someone who is editing the new translations without speaking German! Does he get Freud? Well, he spends the first chapter clarifying that, from Freud’s perspective, there is no such thing as an accurate biography. From Freud’s (via Phillips) perspective, the biography is more about the biographer than about the object of the biography, just as this blog is more about me than about Adam Phillips’ work, and just as what you think or say about this blog is more about you than me, Phillips, or Freud. From Freud’s perspective, it is the subjective experience of the person that matters. And this is, I believe, at the heart of what it is that Freud had to say and certainly Phillips takes this stance as well.

So Phillips approach to Freud is not to flat footedly analyze him by attributing actions to hypothesized unconscious motivations as others have sometimes done, instead he takes a swirling, free associational stab at describing Freud’s history – what is known and so much that is unknown and, in a weird approach for a psychoanalyst, he analyzes not Freud the person so much as Freud the socio- psychoanalytic individual who emerges at a particular point in history – the history of European thought – he sees Freud as a left over Romantic as the world is becoming modern (ironically largely at his prodding) – and the history of European Judaism – Freud may be a Godless Jew, but he is deeply determined, Phillips believes, by his cultural origins.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Tortuous prose 29 juillet 2014
Par EA Poe - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
The problem with this book is the authors penchant for tortuous sentences. He enjoys nesting observations with the liberal use of the semicolon. It makes for a tough slog through an interesting view of a complicated personage. I found myself repeatedly rereading his words before making sense of his point.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Dream Work Ahead - Reading Phillips on Freud 7 août 2014
Par Margy Fetting - Publié sur
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I was sitting in a cafe yesterday on an island in the Aegean Sea, vigorously engaged with Adam Phillip's ecstatic sentences, while concluding his latest and most riveting book, "Becoming Freud".

A southern gentleman psychiatrist sat down next to me and looked at my tri-color markings and notebook. "Ah, he warmly critiqued, "you must not know how to separate the wheat from the chaff?" A visceral response swelled up in me , "The author has a reverence for the sentence, and I his".

I searched later and found a George Elliot sentence,“A friend is one to whom one may pour out the contents of one's heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that gentle hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.”

A reader friend for decades sends her thanks for a most stirring, unsettling and intimate read of new pleasures to add to our dream work.

Par Greifenklau - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
A book about Freud's early years and what shaped his final contributions. The author, a psychiatrist himself, knows his material well. But he writes so elegantly and fluently, that he gets carried away with his own fluency so that page after page one is left not knowing what his point is. Very disappointing.
