Sigmund Freud The Interpretation of Dreams


Sigmund Freud The Interpretation of Dreams


Sigmund Freud revolutionized the way we look at ourselves, with his conceptually brilliant theories of sex, dreams, and the forces ever-present in our unconscious minds.

Few books can claim the status of Sigmund Freud's The Interpretation of Dreams. The record of a process of self-analysis, the book became the foundation for a new scientific methodology, therapeutic treatment, and cultural consciousness.

In The Interpretation of Dreams Freud introduces his theory of the unconscious with respect to dream interpretation, and discusses what would later become the theory of the Oedipus complex.

Freud's discovery that the dream is the means by which the unconscious can be explored is undoubtedly the most revolutionary step forward in the entire history of psychology.

Dreams, according to his theory, represent the hidden fulfillment of our unconscious wishes. Freud lived and worked in Vienna, having set up his clinical practice there in 1886. In 1938 Freud left Austria to escape the Nazis. He died in exile in the United Kingdom in 1939.

SIGMUND FREUD (1856–1939) was an Austrian neurologist and the founder of psychoanalysis: a clinical method for treating psychopathology through dialogue between a patient and a psychoanalyst. Freud developed groundbreaking therapeutic techniques such as the use of free association, and transference, establishing its central role in the psychoanalytic process.
