From the Back Cover The Future of Psychoanalysis explores the contemporary problem of multiple theories of psychoanalysis and argues for a return to a more classical position based on Freud's work. Using his training in psychiatry, psychoanalysis, and philosophy, Richard D. Chessick examines the special combination of hermeneutics and natural science that characterizes Freud's psychoanalysis, and investigates what goes on in the mind of the psychoanalyst during the psychoanalytic process. He maintains that while relativistic and intersubjective theories of psychoanalysis have value, they have gone too far and generated a plurality of theories removed from Freud, which has led to chaos in the field. The Future of Pyschoanalysis challenges these trends and places this debate in the context of current mind/brain controversies and unresolved questions about human nature. "Offering a cogent plea for a return to Freud, Chessick envisions the future of psychoanalysis as resting on the consilience between psychoanalysis as a behavioral science and as a philosophical inquiry into the ethical, aesthetic, and humanistic commitments that define culture and psychological life. This is an evocative anticipation of how psychology and philosophy share an intimate concern for the future of humanity." -- Jon Mills, editor of Rereading Freud: Psychoanalysis through Philosophy About the Author Richard D.
