An Outline of Psychoanalysis
Brief summary - An Outline of Psychoanalysis
An Outline of Psychoanalysis is a work by Sigmund Freud. Returning to an earlier project of providing an overview of psychoanalysis, Freud began writing this work in Vienna in 1938 as he was waiting to leave for London. By September 1938, he had written three-quarters of the book, which were published together in 1940, a year after his death. James Strachey writes that while the Outline must be described as unfinished ... it is difficult to regard it as incomplete, given its fairly comprehensive treatment of the subject matter.
