Was 'death' a lacuna at the heart of Sigmund Freud's work? Liran Razinsky argues that the question of death is repressed, rejected and avoided by Freud, therefore resulting in an impairment of the entire theoretical structure of psychoanalysis. Razinsky supports his claim through a series of close readings of psychoanalytic texts (including not just Freud, but Klein, Kohut, Jung and Lacan among others) that explore psychoanalysis' inattention to this fundamental human concern. The readings are combined to form an overall critique of psychoanalysis - one that remains sympathetic but calls for a rethinking of the issue of death. In presenting a fresh and persuasive interpretation of the Freudian corpus, this book will be of interest to scholars of Freud's thought and psychoanalysis, literary scholars, analysts, clinicians and to all those curious about death's psychic life.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is an excellent work of scholarship, both detailed and comprehensive. It enriches our understanding of the complexity of psychoanalytic theory and the meaning of death.' Rachel Blass, Heythrop College, University College London, the British Psychoanalytical Society and the Israel Psychoanalytic Society
'This book is a significant and original contribution, one which is thought-provoking and challenging, and it explicitly prepares the way for more successful accommodations of death and finitude in psychoanalytic inquiry.' Agnes Petocz, University of Western Sydney
