Here, in one concise and readable volume, are Sigmund Freud's principal theories about psychological existence and his insights into overt or hidden aspects of the human psyche. Culled from forty years of his published works, A Primer of Freudian Psychologyis a comprehensive guide to Freud's ideas on the organisation, dynamics, and development of personality, and the roles of the subconscious, the unconscious, anxiety, repression, and defence mechanisms. Clearly and systematically, the basic tenets of his thinking are laid out, from the concepts of the id, the ego, and the superego, to his revolutionary work in dream analysis and free association. For anyone who wants a clearer understanding of the human mind and the instincts that drive our behaviour, this lucid and illuminating handbook is essential reading.
