Freud three essays on the theory of sexuality 1905

As one of Freud's most famous books, Introduction to Psychoanalysis (or Vorlesungen zur Einführung in die Psychoanalyse ), Freud outlines his theory of psychoanalysis including the unconscious mind, the theory of neuroses and dreams. The preface, written by G. Stanley Hall , explains, "These twenty-eight lectures to laymen are elementary and almost conversational. Freud sets forth with a frankness almost startling the difficulties and limitations of psychoanalysis, and also describes its main methods and results as only a master and originator of a new school of thought can do."

In addition to his formative influence in the study of human psychology and clinical psychoanalysis, Freud's ideas have been highly important to literary criticism. In fact, many of the theories developed in his lectures and writings often reference works of literature, from the ancient Greek playwright Sophocles' Oedipus Rex , to Shakespeare's Hamlet , to Goethe's Faust . This is partly because Freud believes that dreams operate through mechanisms of condensation and displacement that resemble literary representation, and partly because he believes that creative writers get their source material from the inspirations of the unconscious.

'Her views on child development, which she expounded in 1927 in her first book, An Introduction to the Technique of Child Analysis , clashed with those of Melanie Klein...[who] was departing from the developmental schedule that Freud, and his analyst daughter, found most plausible'. [36] In particular, Anna Freud's belief that 'In children's analysis, the transference plays a different role... and the analyst not only "represents mother" but is still an original second mother in the life of the child' [37] became something of an orthodoxy over much of the psychoanalytic world.

What, then, in this critical hour is our shared vision of the future? I don’t pretend to have the answers, except to say that in the broadest terms it will be communitarian, diverse, inclusive, respectful of democratic institutions and the environment, and welcoming toward individual freedoms. It will not, if it is to succeed, call for a restoration of the hierarchical neoliberalism of the recent past. Try as Hillary Clinton might to convince us that she, too, is part of the resistance and perhaps worthy of another bid for high office, she isn’t. Period. Full stop.
