About the Author
Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) is one of the twentieth century's greatest minds and the founder of the psychoanalytic school of psychology. His many works include The Ego and the Id; An Outline of Psycho-Analysis; Inhibitions; Symptoms and Anxiety; New Introductory Lectures on Psycho-Analysis; Civilization and Its Discontent, and others.
Peter Gay (1923―2015) was the author of more than twenty-five books, including the National Book Award winner The Enlightenment, the best-selling Weimar Culture, and the widely translated Freud: A Life for Our Time.
Top customer reviews
So many people think they know Freud, yet they have never read anything by him. Freud speaks very reasonably. There were some pieces of material that were very dubious indeed, but the majority of Freud's teachings in this book were very sensible (i.e. the logic behind dreams, parapraxes and symptoms, the repetition of behavior formed at a young age).
I highly recommend this book.
The explanations given are quite enough to try doing simple analysis on oneself. Freud is a superb writer and the translators did a good job as well.
I recommend this book to everyone who wants to learn about psychoanalysis. The only shortcoming is that the book reflects an outdated (100-years old) view on the subject, but I am unaware of anything more modern that would be equally interesting to read.
