Freud: Inventor of the Modern Mind by Peter D. Kramer

Freud: Inventor of the Modern Mind

by Peter D. Kramer

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
6 Hrs. 5 Min.


Referred to as "the father of psychoanalysis", Sigmund Freud is credited with championing the "talking cure" and charting the human unconscious. Both revered and reviled, he was a brilliant innovator but also a man of troubling contradictions, sometimes tyrannical, often misrepresenting the course and outcome of his treatments to make the "facts" match his theories.

Peter D. Kramer, acclaimed author, practicing psychiatrist, and a leading national authority on mental health, offers a stunning new take on this controversial figure. Kramer is at once critical and sympathetic, presenting Freud the mythmaker, the storyteller, the writer whose books will survive among the classics of our literature, and the genius who transformed the way we see ourselves.
