    One thought on “Introducing Psychoanalysis: A Graphic Guide”

    1. This a short book that was given to me by the Bahrain Reading Challenge group for being the Reader of the Month (February).The first half or third of the book was somewhat defensive, trying to reply to criticisms that psychoanalysis is a sort of religion or shamanic ritual or pseudoscience. The latter criticism was of course famously made by Carl Popper who stated that science must be falsifiable and anything that is not so is not science (i.e. pseudoscience), which doesn't necessarily mean fals [...]

    2. These (the introducing series) can be really hit or miss. The art wasn't bad, but the writing seemed fairly incoherent and didn't come off as a narrative. I maybe got a little closer to psychoanalysis, but I wonder if I haven't hurt myself. I may read a newer edition of this book just to see how it's changed or if a better story is told. It didn't feel like an introduction.

    3. Seems to have been written by a psychoanalyst more concerned about defending against hypothetical accusations than in explaining core concepts of psychoanalysis. What is transference, for example? I certainly have no better understanding after reading this book. Graphics were mostly weird and did not contribute much to the text.

    4. The ideas of psychoanalysis have permeated Western culture. It is the dominant paradigm through which we understand our emotional lives, and Freud still finds himself an iconic figure. Yet despite the constant stream of anti-Freud literature, little is known about contemporary psychoanalysis. "Introducing Psychoanalysis" redresses the balance. It introduces psychoanalysis as a unified "theory of the unconscious" with a variety of different theoretical and therapeutic approaches, explains some of [...]

    5. I usually love graphic guides and am very interested in knowing more about psychology, psychiatry and psychoanalysis. So, I kind of was looking forward to this reading experience. The book tries to introduce you to psychoanalysis but it's not very successful. For one, the narrative is incoherent and the author tends to throw technical terms expecting the reader who is a layman to know it.At the end of the book, I don't feel much wiser. However, the one thing the book has done for me is to elicit [...]

    6. Entertaining introduction to the discipline as a whole; however, it is maybe too caught up in the codification it's attempting to explain, e.g it fails to give the reader an account of the unconscious. The uninitiated are sort of left out in the cold here.

    7. Some ideas came across well but narrative was scrambled and illogical. Made a brief point and didn't elaborate on it, then moved onto another concept.Worthwhile and short - read it in a morning, however I wouldn't purchase.Long live the library!

    8. معلومات قيمة فيه الا ان الرسوم غير جيدة والترجمة العربية ايضاً غير جيدة . اقدم لك يونغ وفرويد كان افضل

    9. It's never easy to read a book on psychoanalysis, even if it's an introduction and in graphic form. I'd have appreciated examples of real-life cases.abigspark

    10. Although meant for the people with no prior knowledge, it easily gets distracted by mentioning sophisticated issues.
