Synopsis

The unconscious is a term which is central to the understanding of psychoanalysis, and, indeed everyday life. In this introductory guide, Antony Easthope provides a witty and accessible overview of the subject showing the reality of the unconscious with a startling variety of examples. He takes us on a vivid guided tour of this troubling topic via jokes, rugby songs, Hamlet, Hitchcock's Psycho, and the life and death of Princess Di.
Aimed at the absolute beginner, The Unconscious is an enjoyable and easy-to-read introduction for the student and general reader.
