“Et in Arcadia ego...?”: Some notes on methodological issues on the use of psychoanalytic documents and archives (1995)


Description “The author uses archival material, mainly the letters exchanged between Jones and Strachey in the fifties, when Jones was writing his biography of Freud and Strachey was working on the Standard Edition. He shows the complexity of interaction between these two men; the more or less conscious ambivalences, motivations and resentments against the so-called Freudian establishment of that time. This per se can help us to understand how a `certain image' of Freud was created in Great Britain during those years and the reasons for its authoritative persistence.” From the abstract.
