 About the Book 

By examining the rise and fall of psychoanalysis, Freuds Dream provides an extended case study of the appeal and potential dangers of the interdisciplinary approach to theory construction now guiding cognitive science as well as a novel interpretation of Freuds own programme. Kitcher argues that Freuds grand scheme for psychoanalysis was nothing less than a blueprint for a complete interdisciplinary science of mind, that many of its strengths and weaknesses derived from that fact, and that Freuds errors are instructive for current work in cognitive science.
