Compact INTRODUCING guide on the debates surrounding psychoanalysis's most contested figure. Freud is universally recognized as a pivotal figure in modern culture. Yet the man and his work continually attract scandal, outrage and scientific suspicion. Was he a psychological genius or a peddler of humbug? Despite his atheism, did he invent a new religious cult? Is he to blame for disguising the prevalence of sexual abuse? Is there an Oedipus Complex? Was he a drug addict? A wittily illustrated glimpse behind the demonized myths to the heart of a red-hot debate.
