Overview

This classic edition of The Basic Writings of Sigmund Freud includes complete texts of six works that have profoundly influenced our understanding of human behavior.

Psychopathology of Everyday Life is perhaps the most accessible of Freud's books. An intriguing introduction to psychoanalysis, it shows how subconscious motives underlie even the most ordinary mistakes we make in talking, walking and remembering.

The Interpretation of Dreams records Freud's revolutionary inquiry into the meaning of dreams and the power of the unconscious.

Three Contributions of the Theory of Sex is the seminal work in which Freud traces the development of sexual instinct in humans from infancy to maturity.

Wit and Its Relation to the Unconcious expands on the theories Freud set forth in The Interpretation of Dreams. It demonstrates how all forms of humor attest to the fundamental orderliness of the human mind.

Totem and Taboo extends Freud's analysis of the individual psyche to society and culture.

The History of the Psychoanalytic Movement makes clear the ultimate incompatibility of Freud's ideas with those of his onetime followers Adler and Jung.

The Basic Writings of Sigmund Freud is presented here in the translation by Dr. A. A. Brill, who for almost forty years was the standard bearer of Freudian theories in America.

What People Are Saying

Bruno Bettelheim
Freud's findings and, even more, the way he presents them to us give us the confidence that this demanding and potentially dangerous voyage of self-discovery will result in our becoming more fully human, so that we may no longer be enslaved without knowing it to the dark forces that reside in us.

    THE Freud anthology

    Any student of psychology must have this book in his collection. It contains Freud's greatest works, all masterfully translated by the great A. A. Brill. Contained in this volume are some of the most influential words ever written. Read the guy who changed the way the world thought, and then take a good look at yourself.
