Notă biografică

Sigmund Freud

Textul de pe ultima copertă

Until the beginning of the twentieth century, most people considered dreams unworthy of serious consideration. Sigmund Freud, however, had noticed that they formed an active part in the analysis of his patients, and he gradually came to believe that they represent struggles by the unconscious to resolve conflicts. In this classic of psychology, Freud explains the dual nature of dreams their apparent content and their true, if hidden, meaning as well as the concept of wish fulfillment and a universal language for interpreting dreams.
This groundbreaking work also contains Freud's introduction of the notion that sexuality plays an important role in childhood, a theory that deeply shocked his contemporaries. Psychological journals rejected the book, and scientific publications ignored it, but the author recognized it as containing his greatest insights. The Interpretation of Dreams eventually helped set the stage for psychoanalytic theory, and it remains Freud's most original work.

Descriere de la o altă ediție sau format:

Part of the bestselling Capstone Classics Series edited by Tom Butler-Bowdon, this collectible, hard-back edition of The Interpretation of Dreams provides an accessible and insightful edition of this important work of psychology

Sigmund Freud's The Interpretation of Dreams introduced his ground-breaking theory of the unconscious and explored how interpreting dreams can reveal the true nature of humanity. Regarded as Freud's most significant work, this classic text helped establish the discipline of psychology and is the foundational work in the field of psychoanalysis. Highly readable and engaging, the book both provides a semi-autobiographical look into Freud's personal life - his holidays in the Alps, spending time with his children, interacting with friends and colleagues - and delves into descriptions and analyses of the dreams themselves.

Freud begins with a review of literature on dreams written by a broad range of ancient and contemporary figures - concluding that science has learned little of the nature of dreams in the past several thousand years. Although the prevailing view was that dreams were merely responses to 'sensory excitation, ' Freud felt that the multifaceted dimensions of dreams could not be attributed solely to physical causes. By the time Freud began writing the book he had interpreted over a thousand dreams of people with psychoses and recognised the connection between the content of dreams and a person's mental health. Among his conclusions were that a person's dreams:

  • Prefer using recent impressions, yet also have access to early childhood memories
  • Unify different people, places, events and sensations into one story
  • Usually focus on small or unnoticed things rather than major events
  • Are almost always 'wish fulfilments' which are about the self
  • Have many layers of meaning which are often condensed into a single image

The Interpretation of Dreams: The Psychology Classic is as riveting today as it was over a century ago. Anyone with interest in the workings of the unconscious mind will find this book an invaluable source of original insights and foundational scientific concepts. This edition includes an insightful Introduction by Sarah Tomley, a psychology writer and practicing psychotherapist. Tomley considers paints a picture of Freud's life and times, reveals the place of The Interpretation of Dreams in the context of Freud's other writings, and draws out the key points of the work.


is fascinating and endlessly entertaining
Joyce Crick's clear, clean and pure re-translation
'The link between psychoanalysis and the arts is endlessly fascinating, and there is no better place to start exploring it than Joyce Crick's fresh translation. Crick returns to Freud's original edition - before he added the edifice of sexual symbols (towers and staircases) which have been fodder for a century of shrink-bashers - and sweeps away the archaic technical terms used in James Strachey's standard version. She returns Freud to the lay reader as, above all, a brilliant writer: profound, accessible, elegant, his case histories as compelling as fiction, the conviction of his vision a pleasure and a provocation.'
