New. 0880641312. BRAND NEW, FLAWLESS COPY, NEVER OPENED--384 pages--DESCRIPTION: "Many of the leading Freudian analysts, including in the early days, Jung, Adler, Reich and Rank, attempted to link the writings of Nietzsche with the clinical work of Freud. But what was Nietzsche to Freud-an intuitive anticipation, a precursor, a rival psychologist? Assoun moves beyond the seduction of these attractive analogues to a deeper analysis of the relation between these two figures. " "Assoun reconstructs Freud's encounter with Nietzsche, his personal interpretations and the contribution of Nietzsche's champions. He also examines the thematic similarities that appear on the surface to reveal close affinities between the theorists. This argument is that these 'analogies' are really the symptom of an open, ongoing dialogue between Freud and Nietzsche (and Marx) which remains vital to critical theory today. "--REVIEW: "A historian of philosophy who has written widely on Freud, Marx, and psychoanalysis, Assoun reconstructs Freud's encounter with Nietzsche, his personal interpretations, and the contribution of Nietzsche's champions. Finding thematic similarities that appear on the surface to reveal close affinities between the theorists, he argues that these analogies are really the symptom of an open, ongoing dialogue between the two, and with Marx, that remains vital to critical theory today. From the earliest days, Freudian analysts have sought to link Nietzsche's writings with Freud's clinical work, but few have explored Freud's opinion of Nietzsche. The French original was published in 1980 by Presses Universitaires de France" (booknews)
