Excavations and Their Objects (February 1996)
Freud's Collection of Antiquity
Stephen Barker - Editor

This is a collection of essays concerned with the thematic implications of Freud's deep interest in the art objects in his collection of antiquity.

"Freud's collection, as well as the act of collecting in itself, are of very great significance. It deepens our understanding of one of the most influential figures of the twentieth century. It also adds to our understanding of Freud as representative of his tim...(Read More)
 
 
Nietzsche and Psychoanalysis
Nietzsche and Psychoanalysis (December 1993)
Daniel Chapelle - Author

Gaps in Nature
Gaps in Nature (July 1993)
Literary Interpretation and the Modular Mind
Ellen Spolsky - Author

"Cognitive Science is arguably the most important intellectual development of the post World War II period.

Virginal Sexuality and Textuality in Victorian Literature (January 1993)
Lloyd Davis - Editor

This book examines the figure of the virgin, a symbol central to many aspects of society and sexuality in nineteenth-century England, and its effects on the Victorian literary imagination.

These essays explore the ways in which virginity is ...(Read More)
 
 
Virginia Woolf and the Lust of Creation
Virginia Woolf and the Lust of Creation (July 1987)
A Psychoanalytic Exploration
Shirley Panken - Author

"Every secret of a writer's soul, experience of his life, and quality of his mind is written large in his work." -- Virginia Woolf

Panken enables us to read this secret language without doing violence to the artistic integrity of the writing.

Virginia Woolf's continuing need for maternal protection, her physical symptoms, depressive bent, anorexia, and suicidal leanings suggest her vulnerability, inner str...(Read More)
