Adam Phillips is a psychoanalyst, literary critic, and essayist. In addition to his scholarly work on such figures as Edmund Burke, Charles Lamb, John Clare, and Walter Pater, he is the author of many well-regarded books of essays on the inner life. His provocative prose, intellectual range, and powers of insight have earned him the label "the Emerson of our time" (John Banville). Phillips is the editor of the New Penguin Freud, a series of fresh, humanistic translations of Freud's major works.
