Young Doctor Freud ( visu )
3 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 271 libraries worldwide
This episode relates how Freud abandoned the idea that hysteria was caused by childhood abuse and implicated the power of fantasy and wishes, forces hidden from conscious awareness. He began to analyze himself, and discovered, in part by analyzing his own dreams, an inner rivalry with his father and long-submerged feelings of passion for his mother. He came to believe that such deep-seated emotional conflicts are powerful and likely universal a theory that became the basis of the now-famous "Oedipus complex." Concluding that dreams were the gateway to understanding the unconscious mind, Freud threw himself into the creation of a seminal work on the subject, The Interpretation of Dreams
