Wondrous objectivity : art history, Freud, and detection
McNamara, Andrew E. (2007) Wondrous objectivity : art history, Freud, and detection. In Liu, Catherine, Mowitt, John, Pepper, Thomas, & Spicer, Jakki (Eds.) Dreams of Interpretation : A Century down the Royal Road. University of Minnesota Press, Minneapolis, pp. 283-299.
Rethinking the importance of Sigmund Freud's landmark book The Interpretation of Dreams a century after its publication in 1900, this work brings together psychoanalysts, philosophers, cultural theorists, film and visual theorists, and literary critics from several continents in a compilation of the best clinical and theoretical work being done in psychoanalysis today. It is unique in convening both theory and practice in productive dialogue, reflecting on the encounter between psychoanalysis and the tradition of hermeneutics. Collectively the essays argue that Freud's legacy has shaped the way we think about not only psychology and the nature of the self but also our understanding of politics, culture, and even thought itself.
