Beschreibung:
An original inquiry into the resources of Freud's use of the notion of 'mass'
Introduction Psychoanalytic Concepts Quantity, Mass and Metaphor Sciences of the Crowd On a Large Scale Figurative Language According to Freud Conclusion: 'On Transience'
Freud's Mass Psychology examines one of the key concepts in the theory of the psyche. Surprenant treats it as an epistemological issue rather than exclusively as a socio-political issue. Focusing on this neglected concept enables the author to raise anew the question of the 'application' of psychoanalysis, beyond a mechanistic understanding of this term and of Freud's writings. This study brings together important topics associated with psychoanalysis, recent French philosophy, and political thought. The original arguments that it develops should interest anyone preoccupied with the relevance of psychoanalytic concepts in philosophy and in related disciplines, notably in the field of literary studies.
