Edoardo Weiss: The House that Freud Built is the biography of Edoardo Weiss (1889-1970), a favored disciple of Freud and the acknowledged founder of psychoanalysis in Italy. Drawing heavily on interviews that author and professor Paul Roazen personally conducted with Weiss, Edoardo Weiss: The House that Freud Built covers political issues (including the difficulties of accomplishing pioneer psychological work under the government of Mussolini), moral principles in the clinic, Weiss' and Freud's differences of opinion in how to best work with psychotic patients, and much more. An index rounds out this aptly researched biography, which due to its focus on Weiss' achievements in psychoanlysis is an especially vital contribution to personal and library pscyhology history shelves.
