Summary

Freud was fascinated by the mysteries of creativity and the imagination. The groundbreaking works that comprise The Uncannypresent some of his most influential explorations of the mind. In these pieces Freud investigates the vivid but seemingly trivial childhood memories that often "screen" deeply uncomfortable desires; the links between literature and daydreaming; and our intensely mixed feelings about things we experience as "uncanny." Also included is Freud's celebrated study of Leonardo Da Vinci-his first exercise in psychobiography.

Author Biography

Adam Phillips was Principal Child Psychotherapist at Charing Cross Hospital in London. He is the author of several books on psychoanalysis. Hugh Haughton is a senior lecturer at the University of York. He edited Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass for Penguin Classics.
