Throughout history philosophers have relentlessly pursued what may be called "inaccessible domains." This book explores how the traditions of existential phenomenology relate to Freudian psychoanalysis. A clear, succinct, and systematic account of the philosophical presuppositions of psychoanalytic theory and practice, this work offers a deeper and richer understanding and appreciation of Freudian thought, as well as its antecedents and influences.With its unique perspective on Freud's work, Apprehending the Inaccessible puts readers in a better position to appreciate his contributions and evaluate the relationship between his and other philosophical world views. The authors, both of whom have extensive backgrounds in philosophy and psychology, present balanced critical analyses of crucial developments in, for example, the evolution of the Freudian notion of the unconscious, and the engagement of existential phenomenology with Freudian psychoanalysis. Askay and Farquhar then consider-often for the first time-individual thinkers' reflections on and interpretations of Freud, ranging from the primary figures in existential phenomenology to the most prominent figures in the existential psychoanalytic movement. Even as their work offers a new approach to Freudian thought, it reasserts the importance of alternative views found in existential phenomenology as those views pertain to psychoanalysis and the question of apprehending the inaccessible.

Askay and Farquhar attempt to trace the mergers and severances of psychoanalysis and existential phenomenology through a study of Freud's relation to Husserl, Heidegger, Sartre, and Merleau-Ponty. This interesting study is bracketed by an analysis of Freudian metapsychology as grounded in Schopenhauerian metaphysics, giving the reader the possibility of understanding Freud as a Neo-Kantian (pp 194–196) and/or as developer of Schopenhauer's budding theory of the unconscious in human life (pp 103–124).

It is thus a welcome departure from this trend that a new book by Richard Askay and Jensen Farquhar endeavors to reconcile Freuds notion of the uncon- scious with existential phenomenology, a project that has traditionally been deemed impossible. Tis is an ambitious book that endeavors to trace the philo- sophical inuences on Freuds most fundamental ideas about human nature.
