Freud

Through close reading of primary texts, this course offers an introduction to the diversity of Freud's writings, and to the movements of his thinking until his death in 1939. Beginning with the Studies on Hysteria (co-authored with Josef Breuer in the mid-1890s), which presents the practice and theory from which twentieth-century psychoanalysis would develop, we will consider the conceptual questions and innovations that occupied Freud across the next forty years, with readings on key topics such as sexual difference, literature, culture, therapeutic practice, dreams and fantasy, and everyday life.
