More About the Author

Sigmund Freud was born in 1856 in Moravia; between the ages of four and eighty-two his home was in Vienna: in 1938 Hitler's invasion of Austria forced him to seek asylum in London, where he died in the following year.

His career began with several years of brilliant work on the anatomy and physiology of the nervous system. He was almost thirty when, after a period of study under Charcot in Paris, his interests first turned to psychology, and another ten years of clinical work in Vienna (at first in collaboration with Breuer, an older colleague) saw the birth of his creation, psychoanalysis. This began simply as a method of treating neurotic patients by investigating their minds, but it quickly grew into an accumulation of knowledge about the workings of the mind in general, whether sick or healthy. Freud was thus able to demonstrate the normal development of the sexual instinct in childhood and, largely on the basis of an examination of dreams, arrived at his fundamental discovery of the unconscious forces that influence our everyday thoughts and actions.

Freud's life was uneventful, but his ideas have shaped not only many specialist disciplines, but the whole intellectual climate of the last half-century.

First Sentence
We know the stages passed through by prehistoric man from the inanimate monuments and utensils that he left behind, from the messages left in his art, his religion and his view of life, which we have preserved either directly or in traditions, in sagas, myths and fairy tales, and in the traces left by his ways of thinking in our own customs and practices. Read the first page

This is one of the great classics and yet it feels so modern. Freud's analysis are worth reading in the text. Mourning and Melancholia can be read many times over and it is still possible to go deeper every time into the analytic process.

This book is very interesting and filled with ideas that are simply explained without being patronising. This is useful, in my opinion, as with Freud's ideas, things can start to get confusing. Very useful for dissertation work or even simply to personally read to expand ones knowledge.

....These essays, each so illuminating in their brilliance, are bedrocks to any serious understanding of this monument to human intellect. Civilization and culture will forever be in his debt.
