In fifteen essays, sigmund freud
explains his most controversial theories exposing the
darkest corners of the human psyche.
Best known for
his research into the unconscious mind, Sigmund Freud
challenged the mores of conventional American society during
the early twentieth century. This collection presents many
of Freud's revolutionary ideas, showing how his theories
changed the way people think about their emotions and
actions, opening a rich dialogue about the methods and
science of the brain.
In a series of essays written
between 1911 and 1938, readers follow Freud through clear
explanations of how neurology and psychology influence our
actions and govern personality traits and emotions,
including the libido, narcissism, mourning, repression,
dreams, paranoia, and melancholy.
This volume illustrates
how Freud was not afraid to venture into unknown areas of
the human mind and that he was superbly equipped to expose
its secrets. Exploring the hypotheses of the most
controversial psychologist of the twentieth century, in his
own words, may help us understand our own behaviors.
