How to Think Like Sigmund Freud - Daniel Smith (Hardback)
The work of Sigmund Freud, one of the most important thinkers of the past two hundred years, redefined the fields of neurology and psychotherapy and the way we view the human mind. Most strands of the psychoanalytic discipline can even today be traced back to the leaps in understanding he made all those years ago.
But his greatest success was to make the most esoteric of ideas mainstream. The Oedipus complex, transference, the unconscious, repression, the libido: these are all ideas and techniques from the Freud school of thought that have permeated the collective consciousness. How to Think Like Sigmund Freud examines these and more in a quest to know one mind above all: that of a person who struggled with his own neuroses while attempting to understand those of others.
