9781613420812: The Interpretation of Dreams

As Elvis and The Beatles changed modern music, so did Sigmund Freud change how we think about ourselves. Much of this internal reevaluation can be traced to "The Interpretation of Dreams." While today we question various aspects of Freud's conclusions, we must credit him with monumental advancements in our understanding of the human mind, thinking, dreams and personalities. Contents of this classic work include: The Scientific Literature of Dream Problems; The Method of Dream Interpretation; Analysis of a Specimen Dream; The Dream as Wish Fulfillment; Distortion in Dreams; The Material and Sources of Dreams; The Dream Work; The Psychology of Dream Processes and more. Photographic reproduction of the 1913 edition.

Review:

Whether we love or hate Sigmund Freud, we all have to admit that he revolutionized the way we think about ourselves. Much of this revolution can be traced to The Interpretation of Dreams, the turn-of-the-century tour de force that outlined his theory of unconscious forces in the context of dream analysis. Introducing the id, the superego, and their problem child, the ego, Freud advanced scientific understanding of the mind immeasurably by exposing motivations normally invisible to our consciousness. While there's no question that his own biases and neuroses influenced his observations, the details are less important than the paradigm shift as a whole. After Freud, our interior lives became richer and vastly more mysterious.

These mysteries clearly bothered him--he went to great (often absurd) lengths to explain dream imagery in terms of childhood sexual trauma, a component of his theory jettisoned mid-century, though now popular among recovered-memory therapists. His dispassionate analyses of his own dreams are excellent studies for cognitive scientists wishing to learn how to sacrifice their vanities for the cause of learning. Freud said of the work contained in The Interpretation of Dreams, "Insight such as this falls to one's lot but once in a lifetime." One would have to feel quite fortunate to shake the world even once. --Rob Lightner

From the Back Cover:

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.
