Patrick Mahony said Freud As A Writer

By | July 24, 2014

Patrick Mahony’s focus on Freud’s writing provides a long-needed corrective to the theoretical commentaries that dominate the psychoanalytic literature. This book is a fascinating study on the literary structure of Freud’s writing. The perceptive analysis of Freudian texts by Patrick Mahony supports his provocative thesis that the master’s rhetorical stance and literary style are deeply implicated in both the development and content of Freud’s theory.

Patrick Mahony is the author of many books, including Freud and the Rat Man and Freud as a Writer, both published by Yale University Press.
