“Unconscious wishes are always active and ready for expression whenever they find an opportunity to unite themselves with an emotion from conscious life, and that they transfer their greater intensity to the lesser intensity of the latter.” - Freud
Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) is known around the world as the “Father of Psychoanalysis,” and for good reason. If anything, Freud’s first patient was himself. A sufferer of psychosomatic symptoms, Freud diagnosed himself as having a repressed antagonism against his father. From there, Freud began to build on his now famous concepts of the unconscious, infantile sexuality and repression. And of course, there’s his famous theory on the structure of the mind, which has made Id and Ego a commonly used part of the English lexicon.
In addition to all but creating a new field of science, Freud also contributed to entire industries. One of the first to try to analyze dreams, Freud’s work has led patients in search of psychological explanations for various physical and mental symptoms and phenomena. And as a practitioner for many years, Freud wrote voluminously about his theories during the early 20th century. As a result, he remains one of the most influential and famous thinkers and psychologists of the 20th century.
The Interpretation of Dreams is Sigmund Freud's best known work, focusing on his theory of the unconscious with respect to dream interpretation. To Freud, dreams represented the unconscious attempt to fulfill some sort of wish, either by resolving a conflict or bringing certain memories to the surface. This edition of The Interpretation of Dreams is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with pictures of Freud, his life and work.
