The Truth About Freud's Technique
by Michael Guy Thompson
Publisher: New York University Press 1994
Number of pages: 318

Guy Thompson explains how psychoanalysis was originally designed to re-acquaint us with realities we had abandoned by encountering them in the contest of the analytic experience.
