No discovery has done more to shape modernity than Freud's theory of the unconscious and the part it plays in determining the course of our conscious lives. In psychoanalysis, Freud created a therapeutic tool by which the deepest anguish and desires of the psyche could be revealed.
Yet this vital and rewarding field has remained a mystery to many, and the widespread use of its terminology in everyday life can serve only to confuse matters further. Introductory Lectures and An Outline of Psychoanalysis take us back to Freud's own account of his theories, and his wish to be the most lucid and inspiring advocate of psychoanalysis.
A new translation by Helena Ragg-Kirkby, with an introduction by Malcolm Bowie.
