"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."--BOOK JACKET
Freud's contribution to psychiatry by A. A Brill ( Book )

Psychoanalysis, its theories and practical application by A. A Brill ( Book )
53 editions published between 1912 and 2012 in English and held by 761 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.

Wit and its relation to the unconscious by Sigmund Freud ( Book )
32 editions published between 1900 and 2011 in English and held by 605 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

Brill, who largely introduced psychoanalysis to America, published in volume in 1921. Drawn from his lectures, but designed for the general reader and student, the book employs straightforward prose to cover subjects such as the cathartic method, the psychology of forgetting, wit, dreams and their types, insanity, the only child, fairy tales, art, and the psychopathology of everyday life
The interpretation of dreams : the illustrated edition by Sigmund Freud ( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When scientifically interpreted, dreams disclose the unconscious conflicts that control our behaviors and our lives. That contention -- accepted by some, derided by others -- lies at the very core of Sigmund Freud's 1900 masterwork. This compellingly illustrated edition offers a uniquely multilayered approach to experiencing -- and analyzing -- Freud's achievement
The history of the psychoanalytic movement, and other papers by Sigmund Freud ( Book )
25 editions published between 1916 and 2007 in English and held by 273 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)

26 editions published between 1918 and 2011 in English and German and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Remembered for having developed and popularized the field of psychoanalysis virtually singlehandedly, Austrian neurologist Sigmund Freud is regarded as one of the most significant thinkers of the early twentieth century. Psychosexual development is a key area of Freud's body of work. This volume brings together in-depth discussions of three of Freud's most innovative ideas about sex, sexual development, and their impact on the human psyche: sexual deviance, infantile sexuality
The psychology of dementia praecox by C. G Jung ( Book )
22 editions published between 1909 and 2009 in English and German and held by 147 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.

Studies on hysteria by Josef Breuer ( Book )
10 editions published between 1936 and 1990 in English and German and held by 94 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."--BOOK JACKET
