1 Review
Along with the "Introductory Lectures on Psycho-Analysis, " the present text remains one of Freud's most widely read. It is filled with anecdotes, many of them quite amusing, and virtually bereft of difficult technical terminology. And Freud put himself on the line: numerous acts of willful forgetting or "inexplicable" mistakes are recounted from his personal experience. None of such actions can be called truly accidental, or uncaused: that is the real lesson of the "Psychopathology."
