Originally published in 1924, this title is divided into four parts each looking at contemporary issues of the time. Beginning with ‘The Liberators of the Mind’ the author discusses important thinkers of the time, such as Tolstoy and Nietzsche. The second part looks at ‘The War and Peace’ which refers to the recently fought First World War. He then moves on to ‘Education and Society’ where discussions include Bahaism and Father Christmas. The final part looks at ‘Art and Criticism’ discussing the trends of French post-war poetry – realism, symbolism and dynamism – followed by a look at dynamic drawing. Available again after many years out of print.

Collected Works of Charles Baudouin

Charles Baudouin (1893-1963) was a French psychoanalyst. Born in Nancy, a town that played a significant role in the history of psychoanalysis, he was a contemporary of Freud, Jung and Adler. After receiving his degree in philosophy, he moved to Geneva where his early work and first book focused on suggestion and hypnosis, later becoming interested in literature and the relation between psychoanalysis and education. Largely forgotten, Charles Baudouin's work warrants greater attention from both psychoanalysts and historians alike. He was a prolific author throughout his career; the Collected Works of Charles Baudouin is an opportunity to revisit some of his finest works.
