Freud Sigmund

<psychology, psychoanalysis, subjectivity> <theory of dreams, emotion, passion, repression>, <unconscious, sublimation, eros> Austrian physician and psychoanalyst (1856-1939). Freud offered a series of extended accounts of the mechanism of repression, by means of which the motives of human behavior are unrecognizably disguised even from their agents. A series of lectures entitled Vorlesungen zur Einfuehrung in die Psychoanalyse (The Origin and Development of Psychoanalysis) (1917) offer a summary of his methods and results. In Die Traumdeutung (The Interpretation of Dreams) (1900), Freud proposed the analysis of dreams as a method of discovering the substantive content of the individual unconscious. In Die Zukunft einer Illusion (The Future of an Illusion), he offered a naturalistic account of religious belief. Recommended Reading: The Basic Writings of Sigmund Freud, ed. by A. A.
