Totem and taboo; some points of agreement between the mental lives of savages and neurotics by Sigmund Freud( Book )
45 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 853 libraries worldwide
In this controversial study Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) applies the theories and evidence of his psychoanalytic investigations to the study of aboriginal peoples and, by extension, to the earliest cultural stages of the human race before the rise of large-scale civilizations. Freud points out the striking parallels between the cultural practices of native tribal groups and the behavior patterns of neurotics. Beginning with a discussion of the incest taboo, he compares some of the elaborate taboo restrictions seen in these cultures to the scrupulous rituals of compulsion neurotics, who in a similar fashion are wrestling with the ambivalent emotions aroused by the incest taboo. He suggests that many of the rituals of culture are developed as psychological reactions to taboos, which prohibit the acting out of an infantile impulse that would be socially destructive. Freud concludes by invoking his famous Oedipal complex as the key to the development of culture. The repressed psychological urge to kill the father as a rival for the mother's affections is the underlying motive for the symbols and ceremonies of religion with its rituals of atonement and its notions of angry gods, original sin, and human guilt. Although Freud's theories are controversial today, this masterful synthesis and its undeniable influence on later scholars of religion, anthropology, and psychology make it a seminal work

The psychopathology of everyday life by Sigmund Freud( Book )
80 editions published between 1900 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 762 libraries worldwide
Freud developed his system of psychoanalysis while studying the so-called borderline cases of mental diseases, such as hysteria and compulsion neurosis. By discarding the old methods of treatment and strictly applying himself to a study of the patient's life he discovered that the hitherto puzzling symptoms had a definite meaning, and that there was nothing arbitrary in any morbid manifestation. Psychoanalysis always showed that they referred to some definite problem or conflict of the person concerned. It was while tracing back the abnormal to the normal state that Freud found how faint the line of demarcation was between the normal and neurotic person, and that the psychopathologic mechanisms so glaringly observed in the psychoneuroses and psychoses could usually be demonstrated in a lesser degree in normal persons. This led to a study of the faulty actions of everyday life and later to the publication of the current text, a book which passed through four editions in Germany and is considered the author's most popular work. With great ingenuity and penetration the author throws much light on the complex problems of human behaviour, and clearly demonstrates that the hitherto considered impassable gap between normal and abnormal mental states is more apparent than real.

Leonardo da Vinci : a study in psychosexuality by Sigmund Freud( Book )
9 editions published between 1947 and 1961 in English and German and held by 760 libraries worldwide
Psychoanalysis, its theories and practical application by A. A Brill( Book )
57 editions published between 1912 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 744 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.

Lectures on psychoanalytic psychiatry by A. A Brill( Book )

Wit and its relation to the unconscious by Sigmund Freud( Book )
28 editions published between 1900 and 2011 in English and held by 584 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
Fundamental conceptions of psychoanalysis by A. A Brill( Book )
18 editions published between 1921 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 476 libraries worldwide
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 373 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 )
23 editions published between 1916 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 270 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)
Leonardo da Vinci; a psychosexual study of an infantile reminiscence by Sigmund Freud( Book )
14 editions published between 1916 and 2009 in English and German and held by 209 libraries worldwide
Three contributions to the theory of sex by Sigmund Freud( Book )
27 editions published between 1918 and 2011 in English and German and held by 204 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
The psychology of dementia praecox by C. G Jung( Book )
23 editions published between 1909 and 2009 in English and German and held by 144 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 in hysteria by Josef Breuer( Book )
10 editions published between 1936 and 1990 in English and German and held by 93 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
