    One thought on “Phobia”

    1. A slippery description of a psychological state that rarely makes sense in the first place. But, there are some really insightful moments in the writing. The guy is Freud-centric in his views, and he brings up areas that Jung talked about but he never names him as a source. The nice thing is the book is short and tries to pack a lot in, and does try to provide familiar works of fiction as examples.

    2. This is an interesting book on phobia and gives you a smattering of some ideas in psychoanalysis. You'd be exposed to new looks, new ways of thought, but all the material looks like a hodgepodge and is vaguely presented. You can hardly get the whole picture till you come to the end of the book, where conclusions are made and you begin to understand (or so you believe!) and you would have a picture of what is going on and who is who.
