Freud and Divination: A pocket book on cards, magic, and psychoanalysis

Publikation: Bog/antologi/afhandling/rapportBogForskningpeer review


What does Sigmund Freud have to do with magic and cartomancy? Surprisingly much, Bent Sørensen argues, while looking at five key Freudian insights and applying them to the ways of and reasons for reading cards and performing magic. The five insights can briefly be named as: The Death Drive; The Uncanny; De-negation; Dream Work; and Totem and Taboo. As a bonus, a sixth area of Freudian and Post-Freudian theory has also been incorporated in this little book - Narcissism as a social character.
