Psychopathology of Everyday Life

Psychopathology of Everyday Life

By Sigmund Freud

In his studies of human behavior, Sigmund Freud discovered how almost imperceptible the boundary was between the normal and the abnormal. This volume — one of his most widely read books — explains, among other problems, why repressed personal desires in "normal" people frequently emerge in jokes, habits, and seemingly "accidental" gestures; the relationship between determinism, chance, and superstition; how repressed life experiences may influence mistakes in speech, reading, and writing; and how current quirks of behavior may be the results of concealed childhood memories. A groundbreaking, clearly written work — published nearly a century ago — this volume will find a wide audience among students and teachers of psychology as well as readers interested in the subject.
