Summary Read First Chapter image missing

Examines the question of science, epistemology, and unconscious experience in psychoanalytic theory and practice.

Psychoanalysis has long been charged as being a pseudoscience. This timely book explores and reexamines the nature of psychoanalysis within contemporary debates about science, epistemology, unconscious experience, and the philosophy of mind. Distinguished scholars and practitioners from diverse backgrounds in psychoanalysis, philosophy, and psychology offer both favorable and critical accounts of psychoanalytic theory and practice from Freud and Lacan through contemporary revisionist philosophical perspectives.

“…a noteworthy book that bases psychoanalysis’s scientific status on philosophical considerations.” — Psychologist-Psychoanalyst

"The scholarship is first rate—a delightful read." — David E. Shaner, coauthor of Science and Comparative Philosophy: Introducing Yuasa Yasuo

Contributors include Marcia Cavell, James C. Edwards, Roger Frie, Adolf Grünbaum, Donald Levy, Joseph Margolis, Jon Mills, David Livingstone Smith, and M. Guy Thompson.

Jon Mills is a psychologist, philosopher, and psychoanalyst in private practice; President of the Section on Psychoanalysis, Canadian Psychological Association; and Senior Faculty at the Adler School of Professional Psychology in Toronto. He is the author of The Unconscious Abyss: Hegel's Anticipation of Psychoanalysis and the editor of Rereading Freud: Psychoanalysis through Philosophy, both published by SUNY Press.
