"Leonardo da Vinci and a Memory of His Childhood (1910) remains among the most fascinating, though speculative, works of Freud's entire output. A detailed reconstruction of Leonardo's emotional life from his earliest years, it represents Freud's first sustained venture into biography from a psychoanalytic perspective, and also his effort to trace one route that homosexual development can take"Back cover

The psychopathology of everyday life by Sigmund Freud( Book )

93 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in English and German and held by 771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Starting with the story of how he once forgot the name of an Italian painter - and how a young acquaintance mangled a quotation from Virgil through fears that his girlfriend might be pregnant - it brings together a treasure trove of muddled memories, inadvertent actions, and verbal tangles. Amusing, moving, and deeply revealing of the repressed, hypocritical Viennese society of his day, Freud's dazzling interpretations provide the perfect introduction to psychoanalytic thinking in action."--Jacket
Freud's contribution to psychiatry by A. A Brill( Book )

Psychoanalysis, its theories and practical application by A. A Brill( Book )

61 editions published between 1912 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Now as there is a demand for psychotherapy the question naturally arises as to which is the method of preference. Without entering into the merits and demerits of the different systems of psychotherapy, admitting that in competent hands they are all good and useful, and that I myself employ them in certain cases, I do not hesitate to assert that psychanalysis is the most rational and effective method of psychic therapy. These assertions are not based merely on the reading of a few scattered papers, but on about six years of hard work and almost constant occupation with the subject. For it is only through hard work and long experience that one can acquire a thorough knowledge of Freud's psychology. The main object of this book is to present the practical application of Freud's theories in one volume, hoping thereby not only to remove many false conceptions entertained concerning psychanalysis, but to stimulate further interest in Freud's original works"--Preface.

Jokes and their relation to the unconscious by Sigmund Freud( Book )

33 editions published between 1900 and 2011 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of Freud's most famous works, this 1905 study on the psychology of humor claims that comedy fills a subconscious desire to brush away inhibitions and feel pleasure. Here, Freud considers: the joke (or "wit") as a defense mechanism; dirty jokes; ethnic humor; the joke as a way to express suppressed thoughts and feelings; and the interplay between the id, ego, and superego in generating humor
On the history of the psycho-analytic movement by Sigmund Freud( Book )

22 editions published between 1916 and 2007 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Presents a history of psychoanalysis from the perspective of Sigmund Freud. The history begins with Freud speaking on psychoanalysis at American University. He discusses the development of psychoanalysis and his role in its development in detail throughout the book. The book concludes with the statement that Freud believes he has shown that Jung's theory which desires to substitute psychoanalysis signifies an abandonment of analysis and a secession from it. He feels that men are strong so long as they represent a strong idea. They become powerless when they oppose it. Psychoanalysis will be able to bear this loss and will gain new adherents for those lost." (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)
Three contributions to the theory of sex by Sigmund Freud( Book )

28 editions published between 1916 and 2013 in English and German and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality is a 1905 work by Sigmund Freud which advanced his theory of sexuality, in particular its relation to childhood. Together with Interpretations of Dreams, these essays are one of Freud's most momentous and original contributions to human knowledge. In short, Freud argued that "perversion" was present even among the healthy, and that the path towards a mature and normal sexual attitude began not at puberty but at early childhood (see psychosexual development). Looking at children, Freud claimed to find a number of practices which looked innocuous
Studies on hysteria by Josef Breuer( Book )

12 editions published between 1936 and 1964 in English and German and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Studies in Hysteria is one of the founding texts of psychoanalysis, revolutionizing our understanding of love, desire and the human psyche. As full of compassionate human interest as of scientific insight, these case histories are also remarkable revelatory works of literature."--Jacket
The basic writings of Sigmund Freud; tr. and ed., with an introduction by Sigmund Freud( Book )

7 editions published in 1938 in English and German and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The psychology of dementia praecox by C. G Jung( Book )

18 editions published between 1909 and 2009 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author shows that just as in normal individuals and in hysteria the complex continues to play its part in dementia praecox, and as it does in dreams, the psychosis tends to actualize the repressed wishes from normal life. The otherwise known absurdities and incomprehensibilities become quite clear; every case has its special interests and its own individuality"--Introduction.

Three essays on the theory of sexuality by Sigmund Freud( Book )

5 editions published between 1910 and 2010 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Freud's groundbreaking, troublemaking theory of sexuality-infantile (developmental), adolescent (transformational), and deviant--in the classic Strachey translation, with a new foreword by Nancy Chodorow, who re-animates it from the postmodern perspectives of feminist psychoanalysis and the sociology of gender. --Publisher
The interpretation of dreams by Sigmund Freud( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The text presented here is translated from the first edition of Die Traumdeutung, published in 1899. It is written in at least 3 main modes: theoretical, narrative, and analytic-exploratory. The main difference between the original and the 8th edition (which James Strachey translated into English) is the inclusion of a long section on symbolism as part of Chapter 6. /// One effect of making the 1st edition available in English should be to dispel misconceptions of Freud's original dream theory by showing that it is based on a flexible and sensitive interpretation of dream imagery.
