Combining psychoanalytic, historical, and textual approaches, Patrick Mahony makes us look at the famous case history in a new way
Abstract Termination is a post-Freud contribution to the psychoanalytic process, which is never complete. The concept is illuminated in its analytic history and development.
The skeptic uncovering inaccuracies in Freud's published case history and raising some critical issues.
Patrick Mahony's book is testimony to the fact that any serious study of Freud must not be limited to the Standard Edition of his works.
This book (Freud and the Rat Man) should be essential reading for anyone interested in Freud, psychoanalysis, or OCD.
I loved this book. Could not put it down. It's a very good read. Very relevant in todays time. I would recommend it and the complete collection of Patrick Mahony's book.
