The founder of psychoanalysis and one of the twentieth century’s most influential thinkers, in his own words.
Sigmund Freud is on the very short list of historical figures who have profoundly influenced—perhaps even revolutionized—the way we think and the way we see the world and ourselves. This book compiles quotes, maxims, observations, and witticisms from the founder of psychoanalysis and the popularizer of such terms as ego, superego, and id.
Covering subjects ranging from politics and religion to love and sex, this collection assembles passages from Freud’s major works, as well as making use of personal letters to his friends and family. Organized into ten thematic chapters, this thought-provoking compilation provides a representative look into all of Freud’s work.
