Supplements and Index to the Collected Works Summary

Supplements and Index to the Collected Works by Norbert Elias

Vol. 18 of the Collected Works, besides including the consolidated index to the Collected Works as a whole, contains two substantial supplements: a long and important critique on Freud written in the last weeks of Elias' life, not previously published in English; and an essay, not previously published in any language, on the anthropologist-philosopher Lucien Levy-Bruhl and the problem of 'the logical unity of humankind'. Both essays fill important gaps in Elias' work, and deal with common criticisms of his thought.

About Norbert Elias

NORBERT ELIAS (1897-1990) was one of the greatest sociologists of the twentieth century. He studied in Breslau and Heidelberg and served as Karl Mannheim's assistant in Frankfurt. In exile after 1933, first in France and then in Britain, he wrote his magnum opus On the Process of Civilisation. His whole oeuvre is now appearing in new scholarly editions in the Collected Works in English. EDITORS Stephen Mennell is Professor Emeritus of Sociology, University College Dublin, and General Editor of the Collected Works; Marc Joly is research affiliate at the Centre Marc Bloch, Berlin; Katie Liston teaches sociology of sport at the University of Ulster.
