The Interpretation of Dreams by Sigmund Freud

The Interpretation of Dreams

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.

    Wait a second. Why did I even pick up this book? Wasn't Freud like ... insane? Wasn't he absolutely and helplessly fixated on sex? Does he or does he not, label developmental stages words such as 'anal'?Oh, that's right, I major in psychology. Typical lunatics, us psych majors.It saddens me, that unless you have taken psychology courses or have done a fair amount of research into the field, you hold a very narrow view of Dr. Sigmund Freud. A doct...

    Die Traumdeutung = The Interpretation of Dreams, Sigmund Freud The Interpretation of Dreams (German: Die Traumdeutung) is an 1899 book by the psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, in which the author introduces his theory of the unconscious with respect to dream interpretation, and discusses what would later become the theory of the Oedipus complex. Freud revised the book at least eight times and, in the third edition, added an extensive section which tre...

    I enjoyed reading Freud’s book. When he speaks about dreams and their interpretation, I am reminded of a microfiction I had published years ago where the editor told me it was the weirdest story he has ever read and that a Freudian psychoanalyst would have a field day interpreting. Here it is below. If anyone would care to offer an interpretation according to Freud or any other school of psychoanalysis, I'm sure you could have some fun. The Roo...

    This was a much more interesting book than I thought it might be. The nature of dreams is something that is hard not to find fascinating. The thing is that we spend quite a bit of time dreaming – not the third of our lives we spend sleeping, but enough time to make us wonder why we dream at all. It seems incomprehensible that our dreams would be completely meaningless. But then, they can be so bizarre it is hard to know just what they might mea...

    I dreamt that I had written a huge modern rewrite of Moby-Dick, except instead of a whale they were hunting a badger. It was full of gothic scenes of Ahab staring moodily into some light woodland, reminiscing about how the white beast had bitten his foot once, and how he would ultimately ‘earth the hated brock in his dank and stinking sett, and finish him utterly’. Instead of the Pequod, Ahab and the narrator cycled through the forest on a ta...

    -ينظر فرويد للأحلام على أنها أمور قد جرت في طفولتناأو رغبات لم يعرها شعورنا اهتماماً في النهار السابق لتظهر لنا حلماً يجمع في داخله أمور عدة قد لا تتصل بعضها ببعضوقد تشير في تحليلها إلى أكثر من استنتاج ومن منطلق بسيط يصف لنا فكرة الحلم من أساطير الق...

    Is it just me, or was ol' Mr. Freud the biggest perv in the world of psychology? Don't get me wrong, this is an interesting read from a historical perspective, but it's so difficult to take seriously! It's also very dated and seems to follow the average family of the time, without taking into account anyone who doesn't fit into what was "proper" back then.

    A major book (of 1900) as one of the possible approaches to the world of dreams. Freud starts with Aristotle (and the demoniac view); then, the (biblical) approach viewing dreams as "Divine inspiration". Next, he proceeds with a very exhaustive sample of dreams of his own, of historical characters (Napoleon I, Xerxes....) or from his patients (or friends) to illustrate/prove his point: dreams are the fulfillment of (unconscious) desires; though ...

    Interpretation of Dreams by Sigmund Freud is filled with Freud’s theories about the connections between dreams and real life that he has discovered through his research. Freud covers everything from the content within dreams to the strategies needed to interpret them, as well as diving in to the finer aspects such as memory in dreams and connections to everyday life. Freud often quotes the extensive research that has already been done in the fi...

    Written with scientific denseness, but lacks scientific rigor or clarity. Can be tedious, vague and confusing. Freud will say he's going to do something (like not use personal examples) only to forget he said that and do it anyway. Or he'll acknowledge the flaw with his approach and then do nothing to correct it (which is better than not admitting it, I guess). For example, he uses his patients, "neurotics", for analysis and comments on how how t...

    This was one of those books I tried to read on my own back as a young college student. It wasn't a part of any coursework, so I didn't have anyone to help tie it to larger ideas. If I remember, I think I ended up making my own wacky meaning out of it... which was some sort of Jungian collective UNCS thing or another. But then I re-read it in grad school in the context of Freud's other work and it began to make a bit more sense. I liked his hypoth...

    This is one of the books that helped me understand Freud's genius, as well as the value of psychoanalysis. It hurts me so that fewer and fewer people want to understand or appreciate Freud. Yes, I realize that the Freudian perspective, especially on things like dream interpretation, has limited value in non-Western cultures, and that for some, dream interpretation itself may not be the most insightful way to understand the subconscious.Still--com...

    Whatever you think of Sigmund Freud's theories, you have to admit that (at least in English translation) he is a very good and persuasive writer. That he was a very important influence on the history of the 20th century is an understatement, particularly since his nephew, Edward Bernays, is known as the Inventor of Advertising.Bernays essentially created the consumer culture that has dominated the US and much of the Western world for the last 80 ...

    The Interpretation of Dreams stands as a unique and classic work in the history of psychology. Originally published in German under the title ''Die Traumdeutung'' in November of 1899,the book outlines Freud’s belief that dreams are highly symbolic, containing both overt meanings (manifest content) as well as underlying, unconscious thoughts (latent content). Dreams, he suggested, are our unconscious wishes, especially sexual ones, in disguise.F...

    Eu sunt adesea cuprins de visuri (şi mai puţin de vise) şi poate de aceea nu am putut înţelege decât exemplele concrete date de Freud în această sumară ediţie (scrisă de autor, nu de vreo publicaţie) a "Interpretării viselor"..."Este interesant de remarcat însă că are dreptate credinţa populară că visul vesteşte viitorul. În realitate, viitorul pe care ni-l arată visul nu este cel care se va realiza, ci cel care ne-ar plăce...

    The Interpretation of Dream (in this case the eighth and last edition published in 1930), a theory on the possible meaning and construction of dreams written by Sigmund Freud early in 1899, is the first psychological/philosophical book I've read, and it is most definitely the most difficult book I've ever come across in my life... so difficult, in fact, that the author even states that he doesn't expect his readers to understand his theories, and...

    رغم أن كتابا يحتوي عنوانه على مفردة "نظرية" قد يثير شيئا من "الفزع" أو الخشية من مضمون منفّر وغامض يحتاج لشروح وتفسيرات؛ إلا أن كتاب فرويد هذا لا ينطبق عليه الوصف. إنه يميل للتشويق، كما أنه على درجة عاليةٍ من الحيوية ذلك أنه في الأساس كان مجموعة محاضر...

    While Freud does an excellent job in explaining the tracing of dreams back to passing thoughts or unfulfilled wishes/desires, I think he attributes too many of our passions and deepest yearnings to simple, instinctual sexuality. Freud, in my opinion, speaks more of his own psychology than he does to explain the reasoning behind dreaming for the masses. This observation, however, leads me to question the notion that one single methodology for inte...

    while freud certainly broke open the egg of the unconscious for all to marvel, it's probably a cliche these days to say that these early interpretations of various dream states are rather clumsy. nonetheless, that's how i see them. what freud failed to realize is that the author of the dream alone is the one that holds the key to meaning, and that outside sources, while being able to guide the subject to discover their own readings, can never off...
