Product description

Review

"A fascinating exploration into the forgotten world of psychology and psychoanalysis in post-Second World War Egypt. . . . El Shakry's book enables us to expand our knowledge of Arab and Islamic intellectual history and forces us to examine our notions about contact points between modern and pre-modern thought."
—Usman Butt, New Arab
 
"The greatest strength of El Shakry's study lies in the way she brings discourses of modernity and pre-modernity together, exploring the traces of each in the other. This is a deliberate rhetorical strategy on her part, which yields far deeper and more meaningful insights than the traditional method of separation of premodern and modern."
—Marsha Aileen Hewitt, Reading Religion
 
"It is an extraordinary study of post-colonial thought and of the history of psychology, which takes seriously psychoanalytic thought produced in a non-western society. . . . El Shakry uniquely uses psychoanalysis to examine the continuities and ruptures of post-colonial thought. . . . It is not merely a contextualization of Egyptian readings of psychoanalysis, but also a profound philosophical engagement with the implications of this intellectual encounter."
—Liat Kozma, Psychoanalysis and History
 
"The Arabic Freud masterfully excavates the neglected archives of psychoanalysis in mid-twentieth century Egypt."
—Fadi A. Bardawil, Immanent Frame
 
"El Shakry's Arabic Freud is a valuable contribution to the history of modern Egypt, Arab intellectual thought, and the global history of ideas."
—Wilson Chacko Jacob, Journal of Arabic Literature
 
"In a world in which Islam is all too often thought to be incompatible with a ‘secular' Western thought system like psychoanalysis, The Arabic Freud demonstrates—spectacularly—that nothing could be further from the truth. El Shakry's beautiful book shows, definitively, that what counts as psychoanalysis could be—indeed was—just as well produced in decolonizing Cairo as in Vienna or New York. This is a major contribution to the intellectual history of modern Egypt—and of modern ideas of selfhood more generally."—Dagmar Herzog, author of Cold War Freud: Psychoanalysis in an Age of Catastrophes
 
"El Shakry provides a wonderful resource for thinking about the particularities of psychoanalysis in Egypt and its complex relationship with Islam, and gives us the history to understand psychoanalysis as a syncretic form. Elegantly argued and thoroughly researched, The Arabic Freud demonstrates that when psychoanalysis and Islam are pitted as strangers today, this is not only historically inaccurate but also colonial in its ideology."—Ranjana Khanna, Duke University
 
"Much more than just tracing the history of psychoanalysis in Egypt, The Arabic Freud reopens the archive of the unconscious in psychoanalysis and allows it to proliferate and disclose its secret connections with the problematic of the soul, in Islam and in religious traditions at large. By returning to us the Egyptian translations of the unconscious as divine unknowing and the drive as ethical self-transformation, Omnia El Shakry brings something new and far-reaching to the way we think now. At issue is not just the question of the nafs as psyche, but of the psyche as soul."—Stefania Pandolfo, University of California, Berkeley
 
"A much-needed addition to modern Arab intellectual history. El Shakry rebuts the binary opposition between a Western, liberating, and modern psychoanalysis and a local, traditional, and constraining Islam."—Elizabeth Suzanne Kassab, author of Contemporary Arab Thought
 
"El Shakry brings to light figures who are virtually unknown to an American audience—from Yusuf Murad to Muhammad Fathi—while focusing on topics that have been subjects of intense debate in recent years: the relation between Islam and Western culture and the role of religion in the formation of the self."—Rubén Gallo, author of Freud's Mexico
