Product Description

THE INTERPRETATION OF DREAMS IS A BOOK BY PSYCHOANALYST SIGMUD FREUD.THE FIRST EDITION WAS PUBLISHED IN NOVEMBER 1899. THE BOOK INAUGURATED THE THEORY OF FREUDIAN DREAM ANALYSIS,WHICH FREUD FAMOUSLY DESCRIBED AS “THE ROYAL ROAD TO THE UNDERSTANDING OF UNCONSCIOUS MENTAL PROCESS.”THIS MEANT THAT DREAMS ILLUSTRATE THE “LOGIC” OF THE UNCONSCIOUS MIND.THIS WAS HIS FIRST TOPOLOGY OF THE PSYCHE IN WHICH HE PROPOSED THAT THE UNCONSCIOUS EXITS AND THERE IS A METHOD FOR GAINING ACCESS TO IT.THE PRECONSCIOUS WAS DESCRIBED AS A LAYER BETWEEN CONSCIOUS AND UNCONSCIOUS THOUGHT; ITS CONTENTS COULD BE ACCESSED WITH A LITTLE EFFORT. THE BOOK INTRODUCES FREUD’S THEORY OF THE
UNCONSCOIOUS WITH RESPECT TO DREAM INTERPRETATION. DREAMS, IN FREUD’S VIEW,WERE ALL FORMS OF”WISE-FULFILLMENT”.
FREUD MAKES HIS ARGUMENT BY FIRST REVIEWING PREVIOUS SCIENTIFIC WORK ON DREAM ANALYSIS,WHICH HE FINDS INTERESTING BUT INADEQUATE. HE THEN DESCRIBES A NUMBER OF DREAMS WHICH ILLUSTRATE HIS THEORY.MANY OF HIS MOST IMPORTANT DREAMS ARE HIS OWN- HIS METHOD IS INAUGURATED WITH AN ANSLYSIS OF HIS DREAMS”IRMA’S INJECTION”-BUT MANY ALSO COME FROM PATIENT CASE STUDIES.MUCH OF FREUD’S SOURCES FOR ANALYSIS ARE IN LITERTURE, AND THE BOOK IS ITSELF ASMUCH A SELF-CONSCIOUS ATTEMPT AT LITERARY ANALYSIS AS IT IS A PSYCHOLOGICAL STUDY.
FREUS REVISED THE BOOK AT LEAST EIGHT TIMES, AND IN THE THIRD EDITION ADDED AN EXTENSIVE SECTION WHICH TREATED DREAM SYMBOLISM VERY LITRALLY.WIDELY CONSIDERED TO BE HIS MOST IMPORTANCE CONTRIBUTION TO PSYCHOLOGY IN PRESENTING HIS ARGUMENTS CONSCERNING THE IMPORTANCE OF THE UNCONSCIOUS MIND IN UNDERSTATING CONSCIOUS THOUGHT AND BEHAVIOR, FREUD SAID OF THIS WORK “INSIGHT SUCH AS THIS FALLS TO ONE’S LOT BUT ONCE IN A LIFETIME”.
