Product Description

Product Description

When it comes to the world of psychiatry, one name has long stood out among the rest. Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) was an Austrian neurologist who came to be known as the “Father of Psychoanalysis”. Freud himself suffered from psychosomatic symptoms yet would go on to develop groundbreaking theories on the unconscious mind and repression. Freud’s work in analyzing dreams has helped aid psychiatrists and patients alike to treat various physical and mental ailments.

This version of Beyond the Pleasure Principle includes a table of contents.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading at a bargain price 16 Aug 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an important booklet by Freud which introduces the controversial Death Drive (Todestrieb) in human beings. This was perhaps Freud's attempt to account for the impulses in Man that lead to the carnage of the First World War, and it could be argued that his hypothesis was confirmed by the occurrence of the next war which killed five times as many people. The formatting of this book is excellent.

For those new to Freud I would like to point out that Freud's writings are not easy to understand, and it would perhaps be advisable to read a basic introduction to Freud before coming to this book.

For its price and convenience, this book isn't *too* bad. I only wanted this section out of a larger book as a study guide, and having my own copy for a lower price than the larger version is convenient. However, there are a *lot* of mistakes that make this already rather difficult read even harder. Obscure punctation marks, random numbers popping up in the text and footnotes dropped in the middle of sentences make this a more difficult book to use, especially for someone not already well versed in psychology/psychoanalysis/Freud.
