Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"[Freud] ultimately did more for our understanding of art than any other writer since Aristotle." (Lionel Trilling)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Freud was fascinated by the mysteries of creativity and the imagination. The groundbreaking works that comprise The Uncanny present some of his most influential explorations of the mind. In these pieces Freud investigates the vivid but seemingly trivial childhood memories that often "screen" deeply uncomfortable desires; the links between literature and daydreaming; and our intensely mixed feelings about things we experience as "uncanny." Also included is Freud's celebrated study of Leonardo Da Vinci-his first exercise in psychobiography.

Première phrase
In connection with my psychoanalytic treatment (of hysteria, obsessional neurosis, etc.) I have often had to deal with fragments of memories that have stayed with individual patients from their earliest childhood years. Lire la première page

Brilliant and overlooked work of Freud 12 juin 2006
Par Steiner - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This is a remarkable contribution from Freud that is almost entirely ignored by psychology on account of its lack of applicability. But that is a tragedy, because this is a work of first-rate thinking. Freud explores the `Uncanny,' the no longer being at home, and traces its dimensions through literature, dreams, and childhood memories. He also contributes a brilliant speculation into Leonardo Da Vinci, later coined as an exercise in `psychobiography', in which he magnificently uses a single memory to investigate the conflicts and dilemmas of Leonardo's childhood and subsequent artistry and genius. This is a crucial text in Freud's vast body of work, I urge you to read it.

Collection of Essays 6 juin 2008
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format: Broché
The Uncanny is actually a collection of Freud's essays, all of which are of good quality, easily read (Freud is a talented writer and his essays are engaging and well written) and interesting to behold. The five essays are: Screen Memories, The Creative Writer and Daydreaming, Family Romances, Leonardo da Vinci and a Memory of his Childhood, and The Uncanny.
Each of these is an interesting take on a field which is both easily accessible to anyone with little to no knowledge of Freud's other works/psychoanalytic theory, and a welcome expansion of application and insight for anyone who has read extensively on Freud. One of the most interesting aspects of these essays is their interest in both the historical and the creative, areas of specialty where Freud demonstrates the applicability of his theories to litereary and historic academia.
The essays are relatively short, engaging and enlightening. Many readers may have a bias against Freud's methodology and conclusions; however, he shows himself to be both a product of his times, and also a nuanced and considerate man, who is willing to accept that his theories are neither complete nor applicable in all situations. While this is the case, he nevertheless is working well within the confines of his psychoanalytic theory, and as such there is certain predictability in all of his findings and explanations. Freud's concern with childhood memories and the resulting transfiguration of memories concerning sexuality during a (male) child's early years is the primary variable, to the exlusion of almost all else. Though Freud's work may have certain oversights and fixations, it nevertheless provides an interesting alternative or augmentative method to understanding psychology, creativity and the uncanny (not to mention Leonardo's sexuality).

"Uncanny" Indeed... 2 octobre 2011
Par Boy - Publié sur
Format: Broché
OK, question: How many other writers or thinkers could possibly explain such mysteries as modern man's ongoing religious impulse and the roots of homosexuality - explaining them with panache, clarity, and a fearless, refreshing indifference to PC thinking - and, on top of all this, explain these mysteries - mysteries that continue to confound the vast majority of today's "leading" "thinkers" - as mere ASIDES in essays in which his main intent is to explain other DEEPER mysteries??

Answer? None.

Welcome to Planet Freud.

This exceptional (and beautifully packaged - take a closer look at that front cover!) little slice of the man's work is thoughtfully arranged in such a way that each essay effectively builds upon and enriches the next in subtle, yet essential, ways.

The first piece, "Screen Memories," deftly explores how many of our earliest childhood memories - perhaps even most of them - are, over time, revised and transformed to the point where they can hardly be called true memories at all. And yet, these "screened" memories are indeed important, although in a way that is hidden - or sublimated - by the screening process.

For instance, think back to one of your first major childhood memories. Do you picture yourself in this memory, as if seen from an observer's perspective? Well if so, this "memory" of yours is actually more a complex blend of fact and fantasy than a memory, per-se. This screen memory is no mere benign or random distortion of the childhood memory in question, but is in fact an ingeniously disguised repression of a much more significant memory.

Fascinating stuff.

In another piece, Freud dissects the act of creative writing, and explains the central appeal of fiction - especially that of the more outre or disturbing sort - for readers AND writers.

In "Family Romances," the good Doctor puts forth a theory for why certain stories are more universally appealing than others. A few prime latter-day examples of how dead-accurate this theory is? STAR WARS, HARRY POTTER, and THE SOPRANOS.

His highly entertaining interpretation of one of Leonardo Da Vinci's childhood memories - most likely a screen memory, as it turns out - leads to this compelling "psycho-biography" of one history's most celebrated and enigmatic geniuses.

The titular piece is a profound and complex - and at times self-devouring - meditation on what it means to experience the rarified sensation of uncanniness. Not surprisingly, the explanation involves the emergence of repressed memories...

All in all, I'd say THE UNCANNY would be a perfectly good introduction to Freud for those who've never actually read any of his works.

Uncannily good, in fact.

BEWARE!!! This is not the collection! 1 octobre 2013
Par Disgruntled buyer - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I thought it was suspicious that the kindle version of this book only cost $2, but after looking at the reviews and the description given I thought I would be purchasing the correct copy. The kindle version is only of the essay "The Uncanny" and does not have the other essays from the Penguin edition with which it is listed, as if comparable. Such a poor job from Amazon. Never again!!!
