"The interpretation of dreams is the via regia to a knowledge of the unconscious element in our physical life."--Sigmund Freud

Freud's discovery that the dream is the means by which the unconscious can be explored is undoubtedly the most revolutionary step forward in the entire history of psychology. Dreams, according to his theory, represent the hidden fulfillment of our unconscious wishes. Through them the inhibitions are released and tensions relaxed. The ability to interpret these manifestations of conflict in the human psyche opened a vast new realm of investigation, particularly invaluable in the treatment of neuroses. By his pioneer investigations into the world of dreams, Sigmund Freud created a transformation in our generation's thinking.

The Interpretation of Dreams is offered here in the translation by Dr. A. A. Brill, who for almost forty years was the translator and standard-bearer of Freudian theories in America.

Brilliant intro but very unclear, too literal translation. One must also understand that this tome is more for the specialist reader with a serious interest in dream psychology. The more general reader will find more rewarding material in Totem and Taboo, Three Contributions to Child Sexuality or Civilization and its Discontents.
