Description

Studies the burgeoning field of psychohistory - from Freud, its primogenitor, to its present-day academic practitioners - and argues that little, if any, psychohistory is good history. The author points out the pitfalls, sheer irrationality, and ultimately a historical nature of this mode of historical inquiry.show more
