From the Back Cover
Along with the Introductory Lectures on Psycho-Analysis, the present text remains one of Freud's most widely read. It is filled with anecdotes, many of them quite amusing, and virtually bereft of difficult technical terminology. And Freud put himself on the line: numerous acts of willful forgetting or 'inexplicable' mistakes are recounted from his personal experience. None of such actions can be called truly accidental, or uncaused: that is the real lesson of the Psychopathology. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Top customer reviews
The book ranges through such topics as slips of the tongue, misreading, losing things and through his painstaking analyses, he convinces us of the correctness of his assertion that really they are not errors at all, but the subconscious overriding our conscious thoughts.
The upshot, though, is that you will begin noticing the errors you make yourself and it is often only the work of a few moments to uncover the reasons you actually made these "mistakes". Just as revealing, you will not be able to help yourself from responding mentally to the errors made by your family and friends and this will provide you with insights into their real intentions and feelings, insights they may not even be aware of themselves.
A fascinating introduction to psychoanalysis which will open your mind ( and no, not everything is related back to sexual hangups, as detractors of Freud may make you believe ) .
