4.0 out of 5 stars Some of the most significant developments in Freud�s early t
Rather than the first volume of the Standard Editions this second volume can perhaps be seen as a starting point in a study of Freud or psychoanalysis. The works in this volume trace some of the most significant developments in Freud's early theories and, consequently, psychoanalysis as we know it.

3.0 out of 5 stars A volume for the ardent scholar and the historian.
Despite being the first volume in this series of Freud's works, it is far from introductory, nor is it the first volume with which a student of Freud, or psychoanalysis, should begin. The volume is of historical interest, it documents some of Freud's earliest critiques of a psychoanalytic disciple that was only just emerging, primarily from investigation of hypnosis. It...

4.0 out of 5 stars Some of the most significant developments in Freud�s early t, 3 Aug. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud, Vol. 2 (Paperback)
Rather than the first volume of the Standard Editions this second volume can perhaps be seen as a starting point in a study of Freud or psychoanalysis. The works in this volume trace some of the most significant developments in Freud's early theories and, consequently, psychoanalysis as we know it. Through his investigations of hypnosis as psychoanalytic treatment Freud discovers resistance and, subsequently, the unconscious. Abandoning hypnosis, Freud develops a notion of 'free association' which is to become the basis for his method of psychoanalytic treatment and investigation.

3.0 out of 5 stars A volume for the ardent scholar and the historian., 3 Aug. 2001
By A Customer
Despite being the first volume in this series of Freud's works, it is far from introductory, nor is it the first volume with which a student of Freud, or psychoanalysis, should begin. The volume is of historical interest, it documents some of Freud's earliest critiques of a psychoanalytic disciple that was only just emerging, primarily from investigation of hypnosis. It should be very much of interest to the ardent scholar seeking to know and understand every twist and turn of Freud's ever-burgeoning theories or a general historian of psychological sciences.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great edition, but some illustrations missing in the series., 14 Sept. 2010
It is wonderful to have available new copies of the Standard Edition, and the paperback edition makes them quite affordable. However, purchasers should be prepared for the fact that print quality, paper and cover quality, and colours all vary quite a bit between the different volumes. Some volumes also have illustrations and frontispieces missing, which is a disappointing oversight/economy by the publishers.
