#BookDiscussion The Interpretation of Dreams by Sigmund Freud

 About The Book

The Interpretation of Dreams by Sigmund Freud is one of a kind book in Psychology. The First Edition of the book was published in German in November 1899 as Die Traumdeutun.

My Thoughts 

This is definitely not a storybook, not even a regular Non-Fiction book. This is the Holy Grail in Psychology to understand the unconscious mind.

This book discusses human dreams and how they can help us to unravel the mysteries of the unconscious mind. Freud famously described as “Dreams are the royal road to the understanding of unconscious mental processes".

I was first introduced to this book as a Psychology Graduate Student. Every now and then I read this book, hoping to understand myself better.

About the Author

Sigmund Freud (1856–1939), an Austrian psychiatrist and the founder of psychoanalysis, is considered the most influential psychological theorist of the twentieth century and the author of The Interpretation of Dreams.

His analysis of dreams as wish-fulfillments provided him with models for the clinical analysis of symptom formation and the underlying mechanisms of repression. On this basis, Freud elaborated his theory of the unconscious and went on to develop a model of psychic structure comprising id, ego, and super-ego.
