SE = The Standard Edition of the Complete Works of Sigmund Freud, 24 volumes, ed. by James Strachey et al. The Hogarth Press and the Institute of Psychoanalysis, London 1953-74.
Highly recommended Secondary source material:
- Ernest Jones, Sigmund Freud. Life and Work, London: Hogarth, 1953–7. Written by the Disciple, but still a classic. The abridgement in one volume (Penguin) by Steven Marcus and Lionel Trilling is very well done.
- Peter Gay, Freud. A Life for Our Time, London: Dent, 1988. Up to date and well judged, with some unevennesses; includes excellent Bibliographical Essay on the state of Freud scholarship in general.
- J. Laplanche and J.-B. Pontalis, The Language of Psychoanalysis, London: Hogarth, 1973. Definitive and comprehensive dictionary of terms and concepts. Each entry is profoundly thought out and researched.
- H. Ellenberger, The Discovery of the Unconscious, London: Allen Lane, 1970. Indispensable resource for the history of psychoanalysis, its relationship to hypnotism, psychiatry, occultism etc. Devotes considerable space to Jung and Janet, as well as Freud, and is still unsurpassed on the background in Mesmerism, hypnotism and the late nineteenth century interest in the occult.
- Didier Anzieu, Freud's Self-Analysis, tr. Peter Graham, London: Hogarth Press & Institute of Psycho-analysis, 1986. A comprehensive account of the interaction of Freud's inner life and the development of his theories in the crucial 1890s.
- Spurling, Laurence (ed.), Sigmund Freud. Critical Assessments, London & New York: Routledge, 1989, 4 vols. A very useful collection, in the main well selected, of the vast secondary literature on all aspects of Freud's work.
Freud and Philosophy:
- James Hopkins and Richard Wollheim, Philosophical Essays on Freud, Cambridge U.P., 1984. It includes Wittgenstein's conversations on Freud, Sartre's discussion of mauvaise foi and papers criticising Sartre's views. See also Glymour's paper on Freud's use of clinical evidence to modify theory, and an important essay by Donald Davidson, arguing that any sensible view of the mind will include sub-systems like the unconscious.
- Neu, Jerome (ed.), The Cambridge Companion to Freud, Cambridge: C.U.P., 1991. A good collection with a wide purview.
- Ricoeur, Paul, Freud and Philosophy, New York: Yale University Press, 1970. The most comprehensive account of Freud's theories from a philosophical point of view, with very good reviews of questions pertaining to the relations between psychoanalysis and psychology.
- Alisdair MacIntyre, The Unconscious. A conceptual analysis, London: Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1958. A neo-Wittgensteinian analysis of Freud's central concept.
- Jürgen Habermas, Knowledge and Human Interests, London: Heinemann, 1972. Chs. 10, 11 and 12 are specifically and very interestingly on Freud.
- Michael S. Moore, Law and Psychiatry. Rethinking the relationship, C.U.P., 1984. Despite its title, primarily addressed to philosophical questions relating to psychoanalytic concepts, in particular in Part III, 'Practical reason and the unconscious', pp. 249–385.
- Adolf Grünbaum, The Foundations of Psychoanalysis, Berkeley: University of California Press, 1984. A sustained attack on the credentials of Freudian theory, from a (roughly) neo-positivistic philosophical position. See the reply by Sachs, David, 'In fairness to Freud. A critical review of Adolf Grünbaum's The Foundations of Psychoanalysis' in: Neu, Jerome (ed.), The Cambridge Companion to Freud, Cambridge: C.U.P., pp. 309–39.
