Freud's women by Lisa Appignanesi( Book )

43 editions published between 1992 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"No modern writer has affected our views on women as powerfully as Sigmund Freud. And none has been so virulently attacked both for his theories of the feminine and for his alleged elevation of personal prejudice to the height of universal pronouncement. Libertarian, old-fashioned moralist, Victorian patriarch, prophet of polymorphous perversity - these are only some of the contradictory epithets Freud has borne." "True, the women in Freud's domestic life, with the exception of Anna, his Antigone, were conventional enough, as were many of his views on their role in society. Yet Freud's closest women friends were anything but conventional. From the writer and turn-of-the-century femme fatale Lou Andreas-Salome, to the socialist feminist Helene Deutsch, early theorist of femininity, to Princess Marie Bonaparte who moved from couch to royal court with amazing facility and became head of the French psychoanalytic movement, Freud's female friends and "pupils" were extraordinary. And then there were his patients - the famous and infamous cases of women crucial to his theories and his method of analytic investigation. In many ways psychoanalysis is as much their creation as that of the young Viennese doctor."--Jacket

Freedom of Expression Must Include the License to Offend: A Debate( Visual )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As valued as it is, the principle of free speech through which everyone can have their say is an especially slippery slope as populations grow more pluralistic and the desire to get along creates pressure to curtail any expression that may potentially insult some portion of the people. Must freedom of expression include the license to offend? That is the question in this Oxford Union-style debate as panelists make their case. Speakers for the motion bring up the pernicious effects of censorship, the suppression of healthy debate, and repressiveness that can lead to authoritarianism, while those against speak of freedom of speech as a means to an end rooted in a particular place and time rather than as an ideal and stress the value to society of outlawing expression such as child pornography
