This intellectual biography of Freud presents a fresh and thorough analysis of the whole body of his writings.

The author demonstrates how Freud's exploratory and sometimes hesitant efforts to explain all that he discovered of mental abnormality are to be properly understood only in light of his quest for a general theory of the mind

On the emotions by Richard Wollheim( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard Wollheim recruits into service the insights of literature and of psychoanalysis, as well as of philosophy, in this thought-provoking account of the emotions. Starting from the premise that emotions form a distinct psychological category, Wollheim argues that they are - like beliefs and desiresdispositions or underlying forces in the mind that erupt from time to time into the stream of consciousness. However, to assimilate emotions to beliefs or to desires or to some combination of the two is quite wrong. Emotions are attitudes or orientations to the world, says the author, and in this regard they are naturally associated with the imagination."--Jacket
Philosophical essays on Freud by Richard Wollheim( Book )

22 editions published between 1982 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philosophers are increasingly coming to recognize the importance of Freudian theory for the understanding of the mind. The picture Freud presents of the mind's growth and organization holds implications not just for such perennial questions as the relation of mind and body, the nature of memory and personal identity, the interplay of cognitive and affective processes in reasoning and acting, but also for the very way in which these questions are conceived and an interpretation of the mind is sought. This volume of essays, by some of today's leading philosophers, explores all these topics, as well as the methods, results and status of the theory itself, while two 'classical' discussions by Wittgenstein and Sartre are also included. A number of the contributions - those by Donald Davidson, W. D. Hart, Jim Hopkins, Adam Morton, David Pears and Richard Wollheim - have not been published before, and a very useful bibliography is provided. It is an anthology that will be vital to anyone interested in Freudian theory and, more generally, in philosophical psychology

Richard Wollheim on the art of painting : art as representation and expression by Richard Wollheim( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Wollheim is one of the dominant figures in the philosophy of art, whose work has shown not only how paintings create their effects but why they remain important to us. His influential writings have focused on two core, interrelated questions: How do paintings depict? and how do they express feelings? In this collection of new essays a distinguished group of thinkers in the fields of art history and philosophical aesthetics offers a critical assessment of Wollheim's theory of art. Among the themes under discussion are Wollheim's explanation of pictorial representation in terms of seeing-in, his views of artistic expression as a type of complex projection, and his notion of the internal spectator. In the final essay Wollheim himself responds to the contributors. This book will be eagerly sought out by all serious students of the theory of art, whether in departments of philosophy or art history
Hume on religion by David Hume( Book )

15 editions published between 1963 and 1971 in English and Undetermined and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

David Hume is the greatest of British philosophers. His Treatise of Human Nature and his Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding are familiar landmarks in the history of thought. His writings on religion have, on the other hand, fallen into undeserved neglect. Richard Wollheim, who has here collected and introduced them, argues their importance both as a contribution to the literature and thought of the eighteenth century and as offering a unique view of the range, the brilliance and the fertility of Hume's intellect. Penetrating, witty, elegant and daring they epitomize the quality of the greatest skeptical intelligence in the history of British philosophy
