It leads Freud to a restatement of his theory of consciousness and of the "topography" of the human mind.

Meet the Author


Sigmund Freud was born in 1856 and grew up in Vienna. He began developing the theory and technique of psychoanalysis when he undertook the study and treatment of patients with neurological and emotional disorders. A master of German prose style and a winner of the Goethe Prize, Freud is the author of Interpretation of Dreams, Three Essays in the Theory of Sexuality, The Psychopathology of Everyday Life, and Jokes and Their Relation to the Unconscious. He moved to London in 1938 to escape the persecution of the Nazis, and died the following year, widely celebrated as the founder of the international psychoanalytic movement.

    Ebook impossible to read
