    Description

    The Interpretation of Dreams is Dr. Sigmund Freud’s authoritative text on the unconscious human mind.

    Summary of the Book

    In Sigmund Freud’s theory, dreams are a form of wish fulfilment. Dreams are how the subconscious mind tries to resolve a conflict in recent or past memories. He explains that the preconscious is very relaxed in its duty while the mind is awake, but still records all that happens around it. It is later up to the unconscious mind to filter and decipher the meaning of all the information the preconscious mind has collected. This is exactly why dreams are distorted, and require a way of interpretation if they need to be more informative. Freud explains that details are very important during psychoanalysis and must be carefully looked at. He discusses how he asks his subjects about seemingly trivial details about their dreams only to gain a better understanding. He also explains why the biological drives of a person are also influential in dreams, explaining human infatuation with the womb and sexuality.

    About Sigmund Freud

    Sigmund Freud was an Austrian neurologist and is widely considered the Founding Father of psychoanalysis. Freud studied medicine at the University of Vienna and practiced at the Vienna General Hospital, researching cerebral palsy, aphasia and microscopic neuroanatomy.

    Freud’s works span a large body of texts on the subject of psychoanalysis. He has also written widely on human sexuality. Interested readers can find more about his theories in The Question of Lay Analysis, The Future of an Illusion, Civilization and Its Discontents and Moses and Monotheism.

    A pathbreaking book.

    The Interpretation of Dreams ("Traumdeutung" in the original German) is the inaugural book of a specific methodology or discipline known as psychoanalysis, founded by Sigmund Freud himself. The book introduces the psychoanalytic method of interpreting dreams through examples drawn from Freud's own life and practice as a medical doctor and then of hypnosis. While it is written in conversational language (opinions on the difficulty of the language may vary), it would be a mistake to buy this bo...

    Must buy!

    "The virtuous man contents himself with the dreaming that which the wicked does in actual life."

    I wasn't a psychology geek until I read IoD by Freud. I guess I've always come across his name a lot of times but never took the time to explore his works until one day I thought of giving it a try.
    I am not a psychology student or geek, neither did I have any psychology knowledge. But, this book, Interpretation of Dreams, literally changed the way I look upon my dream life. I'm not much of a dre...

    Good book For Psychiatry....

    Very Good Book for knowing facts about Origin of Dreams.....
    Sigmund Freud was not accepted for his works because he was not a psychiatrist....

    Excellent book

    It's a very good book, worth buying.Sigmund Freud has really written this book very beautifully. However it's really complicated and requires concentration and time to think over and understand.
    Every time you will read it and think over it you will come to know a new aspect.
