About this book

Rob White reconsiders Freud's controversial theory of inherited memory, referring it both to Anglo-American commentary and post-structuralist work on psychoanalysis. White proposes that this theory is evidence of an underlying haunted retrospection in Freudian theorizing, which time and again discovers that meaning has been lost.

About the authors

ROB WHITE is Editor of Film Quarterly and an independent researcher. He has published essays on psychoanalytic theory in Angelaki: Journal of the Theoretical Humanities, Journal of European Studies and Oxford Literary Review.

Reviews

'White exposes the complexity and "unfinishability" of Freud's project. His scrupulously argued and lucidly written book discusses Freud without the aid of psychoanalytic language. Hence it refreshingly discloses, with great astuteness and sensitivity, just how strange a writer and thinker Freud is. It can be enthusiastically recommended.' Journal of European Studies
