9781451004304: A General Introduction to Psychoanalysis (Classic Reprint)

A General Introduction to Psychoanalysis by Sigmund Freud is classed as one of Freud's most famous works and as such is a brilliant read for those looking to gain a deeper understanding of psychoanalysis. Do not be misled in thinking the book is a difficult read, Freud approaches the subject almost conversationally and in a very readable manner, although many of his ideas are quite complex. The work allows the reader to follow the logic of Freud's theories and join in with his conclusions. Aside to being an interesting read, it is also a very enjoyable one, as Freud is witty and clever throughout. The book is lively and constantly prompts the reader to engage in discussion so as to justify themselves if they do not agree with Freud's theories.

An ultimately dynamic and interesting read, Freud's A General Introduction to Psychoanalysis is brimming with theories on neuroses, dreams and the unconscious. A must read for anyone wishing to further their knowledge on the fascinating subject of psychology.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. ? A General Introduction to Psychoanalysis is widely held to be the seminal work introducing Freud s central ideas about the psyche. Large parts of the work are from lectures given during the First World War and the entire book is an important explanation of Freud s investigative work in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. This period was among his most academically productive as it was during this time that he laid down his unprecedented ideas about the part played by the unconscious within the human mind, as well as the role sexuality plays in human motivation. Sigmund Freud plumbed the depths of topics that had previously been considered taboo or untouchable by mainstream physicians and mental health practitioners of the day. He pried into dreams, and used them to interpret the feelings, thoughts and desires of his patients and questioned their obsessions and assumptions about themselves. When he originally published his work and began to lecture, he was often shunned for his insistence on the centrality of sexuality in a world where the taboo of sexuality, particularly sexuality in women was still strong, but he has subsequently become a respected keystone of psychological thought. Freud s arguments are presented as though to a fictional critic, an engaging and entertaining style, and whilst his conclusions are hotly contested today, it is hard to deny that many debates still begin and end with Freud almost a century later. For the reader seeking to access Freud s ideas or begin a study of psychoanalysis, sexuality or neurosis this is an excellent place to start.
