The 'Wolf Man' - Sigmund Freud (Penguin Great Ideas)
Why were the wolves white?
This is Freud's groundbreaking study of a wealthy young Russian man, subject to psychotic episodes and neuroses. Through the patient's dream of childhood wolves, Freud was able to determine his real problem - that of infantile neurosis brought about by a sexual complex and an Oedipal fixation.
This pocket-sized version of The Wolfman case study is part of Penguin's series Great Ideas celebrating books that have changed the world, inspired, enlightened and provoked us. It brings together the works of great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilisation and helped make us who we are.
