The Significance And Impact Of Gregorio Maranon
The Significance and Impact of Gregorio Maranon
This volume analyzes the literary and historical oeuvre of Maranon and places him in historical perspective. Maranon was an independent discoverer of infantile sexuality and in fact incorporated several Freudian concepts into his work. Don Juan (the legend) and Don Juanism were also a major source of speculation for Maranon. In a separate section on Maranon's theory of biography and notion of historiography, Keller analyzes the physician's ideas and contrasts them with the theories of other historians and biographers such as J. Vicens Vives and Andre Maurois.
