Otto Rank (1884-1939) the early disciple and colleague of Freud, who later broke with him and developed his own psychoanalytic school, was a many-sided man whose genius found expression beyond the strictly psychoanalytic field in contributions to the criticism of art and literature, and the history of myth and religion.The Double, inspired partially by H.H. Ewer's silent f Otto Rank (1884-1939) the early disciple and colleague of Freud, who later broke with him and developed his own psychoanalytic school, was a many-sided man whose genius found expression beyond the strictly psychoanalytic field in contributions to the criticism of art and literature, and the history of myth and religion.The Double, inspired partially by H.H. Ewer's silent film classic 'The Student of Prague', is primarily a study of the Doppelganger theme as it appears in European and American literature, exemplified in the works by such authors as Goethe, Hoffman, Dostoevsky and Wilde. By integrating psychoanalytic concepts with insights from poetry and myth, the investigation is extended to examine issues at the core of human existence: identity, narcissism, the relation of past to present, and the fear of death.In his book 'Acts of Will: The Life and Work of Otto Rank', Rank's biographer E. J. Lieberman has described The Double as a "seminal Work on the relation of shadow, reflection, ghost and twin to the idea of soul and immortality".

    The translation of this work by Otto Rank made for easy reading. Rank's work on the double was reworked on a number of occasions, but was originally released in 1914 and influenced Freud's 1919 essay on the uncanny. Rank does an interesting reading of different 19th century writers to show how the concept of the double is prevalent in writers as diverse as Edgar Allen Poe, ETA Hoffman, Dostoyevsky, Jean Paul, Heine, Alfred de Musset and others.

What seems most interesting is the fact that it is male writers who explored this idea so extensively. Rank, like Freud, seems to avoid any attempt to engage with women writers and their use of the double. For Rank the double seems a spiritual problem which he then links to Narcissism, thanatophobia and suicide. This work is interesting as a comparison piece to that of Freud and to Ralph Tymms.

    Empiezo por un libro cortito para no desalentarme de seguir leyendo al autor. Me ha sorprendido por la claridad de su exposición. Viene a decirnos que soñar o hacer historias sobre dobles es un reflejo del narcisismo. Hace alusión a la metáfora Narciso asomándose al agua y enamorándose de su propia imagen o de la imagen de su mellizo que es igual a él: solo puedes amar a lo que es igual a ti o una extensión de su ser, la "homosexualidad" latente. Es decir, que no puedes amar al Otro, a lo difere Empiezo por un libro cortito para no desalentarme de seguir leyendo al autor. Me ha sorprendido por la claridad de su exposición.

Es decir, que no puedes amar al Otro, a lo diferente, a lo que no eres tú. Menciona también la paranoia, el verse perseguido, a menudo por uno mismo.

    A fascinating early work of psychoanalysis on the divided self, neurosis, and paranoia, written by a man who was himself paranoid, neurotic, and divided. Rank said elsewhere that paranoia was a symptom of latent homosexuality, and of course he was allegedly that, too. I wish I owned a copy (good luck!) because even though it's been ten years or so since I read it, I remember it being engaging, short, and eminently quotable.

    Quite useful to add texture to the atmos into which Freud sent his "The Uncanny," but on its own not especially energizing. Still, people who write on doubles should have palindrome names.

    The persistent and provocative emergence of the Double, or Doppelganger, in myth and fable, legend and literature, is the subject of this extraordinary study by one of the great pioneers of psychoanalysis, Otto Rank. Ranging in sources from the tale of doomed Narcissus, to Dostoevsky's novel "The Double," to Oscar Wilde's "The Picture of Dorian Gray," this outstanding book also draws upon a wealth of ethnographical and anthropological material to support the thesis that the "Double" in an engrai The persistent and provocative emergence of the Double, or Doppelganger, in myth and fable, legend and literature, is the subject of this extraordinary study by one of the great pioneers of psychoanalysis, Otto Rank. Ranging in sources from the tale of doomed Narcissus, to Dostoevsky's novel "The Double," to Oscar Wilde's "The Picture of Dorian Gray," this outstanding book also draws upon a wealth of ethnographical and anthropological material to support the thesis that the "Double" in an engrained, almost "archetypal" element of human consciousness, found throughout the ages, in many cultures, but especially found in Romantic and Post-Romantic literature. Rank even throws in an example of a popular film, "The Student of Prague," as an exemplar of this motif in a more modern, oneiric media, that of the cinema. The compact nature of the book in no way describes the breadth and support Rank brings to the defense of his thesis. So, while some elements of the text show the limitations of time, this book still stands the test of time as an example of psychoanalytic critical writing and as an archaeological "excavation" of a relevant topic in human psychology and culture. A good read this is!

    Eine abwechslungsreiche psychoanalytische Studie zum Doppelgängermotiv des Freud-Schülers Otto Rank, die auf sehr vielen Beispiele beruht. Dies führt leider zu einer gewissen Redundanz, ist aber gleichzeitig aber auch Beleg für die Modernität der Freud-Schule: Rank beginnt mit der Beschreibung eines Films, des "Studenten von Prag", um dann sowohl Lektüren aus dem damaligen bildungsbürgerlichen Kanon sowie der nichtkanonisierten Literatur vorzunehmen.

Auf diese Weise wird en passant die Unterscheidung zwischen E- und U- problematisiert. Ranks Studie ist damit ein interessanter früher Beitrag zur psychoanalytischen Kulturtheorie.

    Excelente estudio acerca de la idea del doble a partir de distintas obras literarias. El estudio psicológico enrededor de la idea del doble es exhaustivo. Lectura muy recomendable en es especial para psicologos o estudiantes de psicología, de hecho Otto Rank fue uno de los discíplos de Sigmund Freud.

    I'm not sure that "like" really applies to this book, which is a discussion of the psychoanalytic concept of the double, using primarily German literature. The slim volume certainly provided a lot of food for thought. I enjoyed the book.
