Overview

The Interpretation of Dreams by Sigmund Freud

FREUD'S REVOLUTIONARY THEORY

This ground-breaking work, which Freud considered his most valuable, forever changed the way we think about our dreams. In it, Freud made this century's startling discoveries about why we dream, what we dream about, and what dreams really mean.

Now, in this definitive translation by James Strachey, Freud's timeless exploration of the dream world is clearly and precisely rendered. Including dozens of case histories and detailed analyses of actual dreams, THE INTERPRETATION OF DREAMS remains an invaluable tool in helping us all discover the truth about ourselves.

• What does a dream about a loved one's death mean?

• What is the significance of anxiety dreams?

• What do dreams of swimming, failing, or flying symbolize?

• What is expressed in dreams about baldness or loss of teeth?

• What are the most common dreams and why do we have them?

This edition of Freud's landmark work is as much an elegant and beautiful art book as it is a guide to dream-interpretation. The pairing of fine art with psychoanalytic theory provides an incredible new angle through which to read the text. Surrealist masterpieces, contemporary art, and works by pre-Freudian artists who anticipated Freud's themes, are beautifully reproduced in this volume. The unique and clever hidden essays, by general editor Jefferey Moussaieff Masson, literally suggest an uncovering and revealing exercise that mirrors the delving process of exploring one's unconscious. Masson skillfully muses over and explains the book's major concepts while also scrutinizing the limitations, contradictions, and errors of Freud's work. This book is as compelling as it is outstanding and should be on everyone's coffee table.

The interpretation of dreams is a wonderful book. However i was unable to enjoy the e-book because all of the pages were jumbled nonsense letters. Very upsetting. Oh, well. Guess i'll stick with paper.

It was a work of genius, but I felt he missed the overall target...at least he paved the way for such a target to be reached. It is an important book for philosophers and psychologist alike.

All of the words were jumbled and it was barely even a nook. 800 pages of nonsense. Please don't waste your time with this ebook.
