Part of the bestselling Capstone Classics Series edited by Tom Butler-Bowdon, this collectible, hard-back edition of The Interpretation of Dreams provides an accessible and insightful edition of this important work of psychology

Sigmund Freud's The Interpretation of Dreams introduced his ground-breaking theory of the unconscious and explored how interpreting dreams can reveal the true nature of humanity. Regarded as Freud's most significant work, this classic text helped establish the discipline of psychology and is the foundational work in the field of psychoanalysis. Highly readable and engaging, the book both provides a semi-autobiographical look into Freudlsquo;s personal life adash; his holidays in the Alps, spending time with his children, interacting with friends and colleagues odash; and delves into descriptions and analyses of the dreams themselves.

Freud begins with a review of literature on dreams written by a broad range of ancient and contemporary figures idash; concluding that science has learned little of the nature of dreams in the past several thousand years. Although the prevailing view was that dreams were merely responses to Psquo;sensory excitation, squo; Freud felt that the multifaceted dimensions of dreams could not be attributed solely to physical causes. By the time Freud began writing the book he had interpreted over a thousand dreams of people with psychoses and recognised the connection between the content of dreams and a personEsquo;s mental health. Among his conclusions were that a person squo;s dreams:


Prefer using recent impressions, yet also have access to early childhood memories
Unify different people, places, events and sensations into one story
Usually focus on small or unnoticed things rather than major events
Are almost always Esquo;wish fulfilmentsIsquo; which are about the self
Have many layers of meaning which are often condensed into a single image

The Interpretation of Dreams: The Psychology Classic is as riveting today as it was over a century ago. Anyone with interest in the workings of the unconscious mind will find this book an invaluable source of original insights and foundational scientific concepts. This edition includes an insightful Introduction by Sarah Tomley, a psychology writer and practicing psychotherapist. Tomley considers paints a picture of Freud's life and times, reveals the place of The Interpretation of Dreams in the context of Freud's other writings, and draws out the key points of the work.
