Hay Player

Adam Phillips and Paul Keegan

Freud

Hay Festival 2002, 
Sigmund Freud revolutionized the way we see our inner world. His writing inspires not only psychoanalysts but also artists, film-makers, writers and anyone looking for an imaginative way to think about their inner lives. But Freud can also be baffling: Phillips and Keegan introduce the Id, the Ego, The Superego, the Oedipus Complex. He was a daring thinker, and a stylish writer. His ideas are thrilling and his writing is often delightful. It's time to put the pleasure principle back into Freud.
