    While a great introduction to Freudian thought, especially explications of often confused jargon, Stephen Wilson is too credulous of Freud s claims and seems to cherry pick straw man criticisms of Freudian thought The overall context is that claims of clinical psychoanalysis are valued, methodological complaints are only levied against Freud s critics, and the focus on knocking down people who claim to have disproved Freud doesn t address the simpler argument that the claims Freud made are While a great introduction to Freudian thought, especially explications of often confused jargon, Stephen Wilson is too credulous of Freud s claims and seems to cherry pick straw man criticisms of Freudian thought The overall context is that claims of clinical psychoanalysis are valued, methodological complaints are only levied against Freud s critics, and the focus on knocking down people who claim to have disproved Freud doesn t address the simpler argument that the claims Freud made are not always even often provable in themselves It further does disservice by ignoring the broad range of clinical psychology not psychoanalysis and neurology that contradict Freud, leaving the book a bit strained by its unstated biases it reminded me not a little of Intelligent Design proponents who don t recognize that making a case that the broad Darwinian view of evolution is not without faults is not the same as making a positive case for Intelligent Design Even a moderate amount of surveying the empirical work on childhood development in contrast to Freud s inductive speculation would have improved the book immeasurably Instead, sceptic arguments are noted and then discarded in favor of negative arguments easier to rebut and often based on the same sloppy thinking Freud evidenced As an introduction to Freud, the book is a fair success as an introduction to the Freud wars, it s only modestly successful and has serious flaws However, as a survey text, the explication of Freud s stronger andcomplex arguments makes it worth reading

    Brilliant concept, poorly executed This book seems to have assumed that the reader has read all of freud s theories However famous they maybe, some concept or background towards these theories would have made this a lighter read.


  3. Tiffaney Tiffaney says:

    Well I really wasn t prepared for how this book was written and it has farpictures than I care for I guess all I can say isEH.


  4. Michael P. Michael P. says:

    The book cheats by pretending to look at the debate, but ends up siding with Freud every time What a disappointment.


  5. Ietrio Ietrio says:

    quotes without references, trivia and a terrible lack of arguments a shallow and incomplete work hiding behind the word introducing

    A fun oversight of the basic concepts of Freuds thought Although it seems to suggest it paints a balanced picture, it tends to pick Freuds side Weird because it does do a good job of narrating Freud s insane leaps of logic, but then fails to recognize that pretty much every single Freudian theory put forth still feels like wishfull thinking and overgeneralization.Also, the book tends to but the burden of proof with critics of Freud It seems to want critics to provide scientific evidence whi A fun oversight of the basic concepts of Freuds thought Although it seems to suggest it paints a balanced picture, it tends to pick Freuds side Weird because it does do a good job of narrating Freud s insane leaps of logic, but then fails to recognize that pretty much every single Freudian theory put forth still feels like wishfull thinking and overgeneralization.Also, the book tends to but the burden of proof with critics of Freud It seems to want critics to provide scientific evidence whilst Freud has not provided any real evidence besides these leaps of logic in the first place


  7. Tim Sully Tim Sully says:

    The book is a mess The title makes you think it will delve into the debates and fracturing of Freudian thought The book is 80% history of Freud and his ideas 20% of the book is random, not organized, counter arguments of Freud that are not well described The pictures are disturbing and not helpful for learning the concepts There was only one line from Carl Jung.

    surprisingly well done


  9. Peter Lambert Peter Lambert says:

    Writing in speech bubbles is far too small Can t enlarge.I will never pay for a graphic guide book.Otherwise good information.


  10. SmarterLilac SmarterLilac says:

    A surprisingly thorough, factual and cleansing clarification of what Freud did and did not write about and believe This should be required reading in any survey level introductory course on Freud I especially like that this is in graphic novel format, as this serves to subtly emphasize the childishness of some of theabsurd criticisms of Freud and his work.
