Sigmund Freud - 24 Volume Set - Volumes I-XXIV

The long-awaited Revised Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud (RSE) is founded on the canonical Standard Edition (SE) translation from the German by James Strachey, while adding a new layer of revisions and translations. Conceptual and lexicographic ambiguities are clarified in extensive new annotations. Drawing on established conventions and intellectual traditions, the Revised Standard Edition supplements Freuds writing with substantial editorial commentaries addressing controversial technical terms and translation issues through the lens of modern scholarship--a living text in dialogue with itself and the reader. The RSE also includes 56 essays and letters which were not included in the SE.

In the RSE text and footnotes a subtle underlining distinguishes, in an easy and accessible way, Mark Solmss revisions and additions, from the historical translation and commentaries of James Stracheys Standard Edition. Readers can examine what Strachey contributed before the revisions in tandem with Solmss updates, new translations, annotations, and commentaries, collectively bringing Freuds text and Stracheys translation into dialogue with five decades of research, including the most recent developments in the field.

Commissioned by the British Psychoanalytical Society and co-published by Rowman & Littlefield, the Revised Standard Edition brings together decades of scholarly deliberation concerning the translation of Freudian technical terms while retaining the best of Stracheys original English translation.This landmark work will captivate a wide audience, from interested lay readers to practicing clinicians to scientists and scholars in fields related to psychoanalysis.
