Three Contributions to the Theory of Sex

4.57

 

In creating psychoanalysis, a method for treating psychopathology through dialogue between a patient and a psychoanalyst, Sigmund Freud developed therapeutic techniques such as the use of free association and transference, establishing its crucial role in the analytic process.

His analysis of dreams provided him with models for the clinical analysis of symptom formation and the mechanisms of repression

His redefinition of sexuality led him to formulate the Oedipus complex as a central tenet of psychoanalytical theory.

Freud postulated the existence of libido, an energy with which mental processes and structures are invested which generates erotic attachments, a death drive, and neurotic guilt.

SIGMUND FREUD (1856-1939) is widely considered the father of modern Psychoanalysis. He revolutionized the way we look at ourselves, with his conceptually brilliant theories of sex, dreams, and the forces ever-present and at work in our unconscious minds.
