This stimulating book grows out of a symposium at Stanford University in 1991 on the relationship between psychoanalysis and culture. The symposium was stimulated by an exhibition, which toured a number of sites in the United States, consisting of a selected group of classical antiquities from the collection of Sigmund Freud. Freud was an avid collector, particularly of Egyptian artifacts, and often used archeological analogies in illustrating his psychoanalytic ideas.

Psychoanalysis and Culture at the Millennium demonstrates the wide range and diversity of the interaction between psychoanalysis and modern intellectual thought. History, philosophy, anthropology, literature, and art have all interacted with Freud's legacy, and the book gives ample examples of mutual influence.
