Carefully corrected and updated with important scholarship by Professor Solms over the past 30 years, the much-awaited Revised Standard Edition will be an indispensable tool for psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, psychiatrists, neurologists, and philosophers, as well as those working in the humanities.”
