    Whew A daunting classic with plenty of awkward moments but absolutely worth reading Bucketlist material for sure Special thanks to Michael Page who narrated the unabridged audio version His narration is absolutely pitch perfect the total embodiment of an analytical psychologist Without the audio I probably wouldn't have read it and that would be a shameWhat I love most is the endless analysis Yes some of Freud's theories are pretty wild and I'll get to that but there's a lot to learn about the human condition both in its sleeping and waking states Freud analyzes every possible dream from so many angles it boggles the mind But being a constant dreamer his theories kept me in rapt attentionMy dreams are often varying and multi faceted Freud talks about them all and many others The examples he gives of dreams that manifest out of reality are particularly interesting This happens to me often I’ll dream an elaborate story with characterization rising plot mystery and intrigue and right at the climax when the protagonist is about to get hit by a train there's a real world blaring sound Only the real sound isn't a train it happens to be my alarm clockHow the hell is that possible? My dreaming state can plot itself out to the millisecond so that the climax coincides with my alarm ringing? It's miraculous unexplainable And yet Freud explains it Or tries to at least Even after 600 pages or 21 hours on audio there's room left for mystery I think And Freud himself says that two people can dream the exact same thing and it have completely different meanings based on contextFor example falling If you've dreamed of falling from a large height it could be a bodily reaction to a foot hanging loose off the mattress Or surprise surprise it could be about sex According to Freud a woman may manifest a dream of falling as a symbolic reflection of her unconscious feeling of being or desiring to be a fallen womanSpoiler alert Freud basically concludes that all of your dreams are about sexThere's his expected theory on phallic symbolism of course If you dream about corn stalks or cucumbers we all know what you're really dreaming about But objects that pun with sexual objects are also in play Such as the fallen womanThe most bizarre example Freud uses is dreaming of children Because it was in vogue to refer to the male member as 'little man' Freud concludes that dreaming of a child is often the subconscious using symbolism And if you dream of beating the child? Well obviously that must mean your subconscious is expressing a wish to masturbateFreud is a controversial figure because of ideas like these but it would be loss to not recognize how many of this theories are crucial to understanding psychology And for those who accuse him of being a sex obsessed maniac we should remember that all living things are sex obsessed maniacs From the trees who fill the spring air with their pollen to the male black widow who gives up his life for the sake of biological need And yes humans tooWhether or not you want to admit it we're built to think like that and Freud's continual return to sex comes across less like the cocaine loving ramblings of a nympho and like someone who understands what makes a human tickAt the very least all of the passages about medicinal cocaine and sex symbolism makes this an infinitely entertaining read than it might be otherwiseOverall I would easily mark this as a must read classic Where else can you find a thick textbook that's actually engaging? It will make you think uestion yourself and understand yourself If nothing else it's made me hyper aware of my dreams I remember ALL OF THEM now Instead of waking up and shaking them away I'm immediately replaying them in my mind and thinking Oh God what would Freud say about THAT?

    I have read various editions of various books claiming to interpret the dreams we see while we are unconscious or subconscious However the book by Freud is different Being a psychologist and a famous one his interpretations are mostly based on popular beliefs culture and analysis In the Indian context much of it cannot be exemplified Still the book is fine and noteworthy even today

    This was a much 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 uite 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 mean Freud starts with a uick run through how dreams have been interpreted in the past – from Aristotle on Aristotle is a good place to start as he says we dream about things that have been left unresolved from the day – and this is a core idea that Freud also includes in his theory of dreams Essentially Freud sees dreams as playing a key role in helping us to process stuff that happened during the day But dreams are a truth that likes to hide Their meaning covers itself in remarkable allusions and images that are often amusingly apt but sometimes it is as if we are determined to hide the true meaning of our dreams even from ourselvesFreud makes it clear that this will not be a book of off the shelf interpretations – ‘oh you dreamt of a lion last night that means you should have been born Leo and spent time chasing gazelle’ To Freud it is impossible to understand and interpret dreams from a list of standard symbols This doesn’t mean that if you are going to interpret dreams you don’t have to know a lot about symbols and their common meanings – but this knowledge is never enough Symbols develop their own meanings within the text that is the dream Just as in Blake’s The Sick Rose the rose can be read to mean anything from nature to the Christian Church to female genitalia so in dreams the interpretation is meaningful within the context of the dream and to the life of the dreamer And the dream is relevant to the immediate life of the dreamer It is generally a response to what happened that day – even if the imagery used may well refer back to the childhood of the dreamer so that the deeper significance is a life's workThe other remarkable conclusion Freud draws is that dreams are wish fulfilments Now this seems anything but obvious Sure when we have dreams we are having sex with super models it is pretty obvious that Freud is onto something But these aren’t the only dreams he sees as being wish fulfilments Even dreams where loved ones die are seen by Freud as being fundamentally the realisations of wishes – but again the dream isn’t always as easy to interpret as it might initially seem and the wish may not be as easy to understand as might be immediately apparent from what happens in the dream The fact we wake screaming and shaking from a dream may not mean there is no wish involved in the thing that terrifies us – although I would have to say I don’t think he dealt with nightmares nearly as well as he ought to haveIt is here that Freud discusses the Oedipal Complex – how our first sexual attraction is toward the parent of the opposite sex to ourselves and therefore we desire to remove one parent from the scene so as to take their place While we are children the full implications of this desire are obscure to us – but as we grow older the taboo associated with this desire helps suppress our recognition of these desires or repress them rather – but only from the conscious mind The subconscious mind still remembers what we might prefer to forget and so uses these images as the first images of our awakening desires as potent images in our dreams The meaning of the image may not be anything like that we want to kill our father and have sex with our mother – it might actually refer to an awakening of sexual interest in someone else we have only recently meet – but the dream uses this ‘primal’ image as something to help it make sense of our current world and desires even if the image then goes on to confuse the hell out of usTime for a story I once worked with a woman called Frances Nolan She was really lovely one of the nicest people I’ve ever worked with but I didn’t really fancy her I mean she was pretty and incredibly nice but she was uite a bit younger than me and I just wasn’t really all that interested in her in that way But every morning I would be walking to the train station and when I got to a certain part of Church Street she would suddenly jump into my head as large as life I was starting to think that I must have been starting to fall for her – it was the strangest feeling and uite confusing Until one day I realised that there is a shoe shop in Church Street that is called Frances Nolan Shoes – and the sign is huge and I would walk under it every day I really struggle to believe I didn’t consciously notice this sign in all the time I had walked up that street and imagined I was falling for poor Frances This book is interesting as I had assumed it would be a much harder read than it turned out to be – I also thought it would be a much sillier book than it turned out too It is extremely well written I don’t think I agree entirely with Freud but he makes a very strong case My main problems with his theory have to do with Sherlock Holmes Because that’s what a lot of this sounded like to me Someone has a dream and Freud does the whole ‘Elementary my dear Watson’ thing It even gets to the stage where he says that sometimes things mean the opposite of what they seem to mean in the dream When that is the case then any interpretation is basically about imposing ones preconceptions on the meaning of the symbols in the dream I tend to think that dreams probably don’t mean nearly as much as we like to think they do – but what they do do is throw up lots of random images images which we try to make sense of and it is that ‘making of sense’ that says interesting things about us And whether it is dream images or tarot cards or ink dots on paper – our making sense of random images says interesting things about us But we should go gently into this stuff We should go on tip toes Because stories have lives of their own and we are weaker than a good story and always will beI once read a book called Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain I think in that book she says that lines have a momentum that is very hard to control – but controlling the momentum of lines is a large part of what drawing is about Stories also have a momentum that is very hard to control The narratives we tell about ourselves are one thing – the narrative we tell about our dreams are uite another Personally I think I prefer Freudian readings of novels to Freudian readings of people – but I can certainly see why this book made such an impact If the problem with the book is Freud playing Holmes it is only a problem because he is so damn clever he gets away with it I’m surprised I’m going to do this – I would never have thought I would have when I started reading but I think I would recommend this book It is a fascinating read even if it has left me somewhat less than convinced

    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 Peuod Ahab and the narrator cycled through the forest on a tandem bicycle studying tracks and peering through the shrubs Every now and then one of them would point through the branches and shout ‘Lo The white badger’ and they would pedal offIn my mind this was a serious literary project Unfortunately I have never finished Moby Dick and so the book just devolved into chapters full of interminable facts about badger biology lifestyle and cultural history and the foundational role they play in the mythology of countless woodland societies which is not true I remember copying out a uote from King Lear where someone is said to be ‘like unto the brindl'd baddger’ but sadly upon waking I have discovered that this line does not exist On the other hand I also remember repeatedly using the adjective ‘meline’ which does in fact exist and is not a word I knew that I knewIf anyone can interpret this for me I am all ears In the meantime if you'll excuse me I now have 200000 words to write about badger huntingAug 2018Another strange dream also animal related I was staying in an old house in the countryside around Lago Maggiore It was a big crumbling mansion surrounded by marshes and woodland like something from Edgar Allen Poe It was twilight In a dark creek nearby we found a shark and caught it in a net It was explained to me that this was a very rare kind of shark that was only found in the swampland of this area and that it was called Mercer's cat shark We tipped it out onto the ground It had a small body and a wide snout and was completely covered in short dark furMar 2020

    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 Roof DancerSidney and Sam identical twins crackerjack roofers started work up on a roof one sultry July morning when Sam tripped on a piece of tar at the roof’s peak and slid down head first He would have plunged straight to the ground if Sidney hadn’t reached over at the last moment and snatched him by his bootsHanging over the side upside down Sam had a view through a second floor bedroom window The lady of the house was completely naked Her ample rear end was bobbing and swinging to a polka playing on an enormous ancient phonographSidney yanked Sam back up to the roof but Sam became so excited in the process he ejaculated his semen seed By the time the seed popped out of the bottom of his dungarees rolled off the roof and landed in the yard it was the size of a cantaloupe From all corners of the yard kids skipped over and began frolicking with the seed Its round contour grew to the size of a watermelon in their handsSam stared down at the kids He began a high step gleeful dance part mazurka part gavotte part rumba part hornpipe right there on the roof bottom to top edge to edge twirling like some enchanted wood nymph his pot belly jiggling in pure ecstasyIt wasn’t long before the man of the house a bald mustachioed Mr Verea made his way up the ladder “What’s all this racket I’m hearing?” he asked scanning the roofSam pirouetted daintily at the peak doffing his baseball cap Mr Verea grabbed Sidney by the suspenders and yelled “Do you guys think I hired you to put a new roof on my house or perform ballet?”“Yes sir right away sir” Sidney stammered beads of sweat pouring off his forehead and bulbous noseMr Vera pushed Sidney rudely “Now I say do it now”Sidney wobbled backwards nearly toppling over the edge but regained his balance and shoved Mr Verea back A rapid fire shoving match ensued along the entire length of the roof At the same time Sam fluttered down on tiptoe scooped up an armful of shingles and started putting them in placeA fully dressed Mrs Verea made her appearance at the head of the ladder “Get back down here” she railed at her husband “Let those men finish their work”“Nobody is going to push me on my own roof” he replied“I say come down” insisted Mrs Verea“Come down yourself” said Mr VereaStepping up from the ladder to the roof Mrs Verea kicked her husband in the pants He stopped shoving Sidney turned around and started shoving her whereupon she too started shoving him furiouslySidney fanned himself with his baseball cap and looked over at his brother – just now between acrobatic leaps of a saltarello Sam placed the last of the shingles on the tarAs if he were at the court of Louis XIV Sidney curtsied gracefully then pointed to the ladder before climbing down himself Sam followed hips swinging but fell between the rungs There was nothing for Sidney to do but guide the ladder with his brother stuck in it to the vanThe kids approached; they held the distended seed the shape and length of a garden hose now translucent with flecks of gold sparkling radiating light in their hands When Sam jiggled and kicked down the driveway the kids shook the magnificent seed each shake casting out fine gold dust that turned to streams of water when it touched the earth

    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 illustrateprove his point dreams are the fulfillment of unconscious desires Though absurd they may look they are meaningful they can be interpreted This absurdity is due to unconscious mechanisms which disguise the true meaning of the dream namely via displacement and condensation Our language is also an obstacle due to its inaccuracyYet language is paramount for the interpretation démarche And Freud was good at it Tom Paine's nightly pest It's a pity he ends the last paragraph of the book considering the value of dreams regarding the future should have written prophetic aspect concluding that we cannot consider Curiously he took some lines on this woman telling his mother about how a great man he would become; he speculated about a minister 'The Interpretation of Dreams' by Rod Moss The fact is that this wish fulfillment approach proved not to be totally true With the great war 1914 1918 Freud had patientssoldiers who suffered from recurrent dreams war traumasand he concluded later on that these types of dreams nightmares had no relation to the Eros impulse rather to Thanatos a destructive forcedrive operating within the psyche So he made some changes on his model of the psyche Hypnos and Thanatos Sleep and His Half Brother Death by John William Waterhouse 1874 Today 15th of June I was listening to someone speaking about dreams of the USA in flamesand riots in the streets Those dreams happened to people before the 2012 Obama election They perceived a link between the re election and the feared upcoming events Surely those were dreams of the future; no pleasure principle operatingI'm glad they didn't materializeUPDATE I would be glad to hear of any help interpretation on Chief Golden Light Eagle's dream about Obama And how about the value of the dream for a knowledge of the future? That of course we cannot consider One feels inclined to substitute”for a knowledge of the past” For the dream originates from the past in every sense To be sure the ancient belief that the dream reveals the future is not entirely devoid of truth By representing a wish as fulfilled the dream leads us into the future; BUT THIS FUTURE TAKEN BY THE DREAMER AS PRESENT HAS BEEN FORMED INTO THE LIKENESS OF THAT PAST BY INDESTRUCTIBLE WISH”

    The Interpretation of Dreams deals mostly with what the title would imply; it is an examination of the dream world according to Freud one might say Freud uses the subject of dreams as a base to build on using dream analysis and interpretation as tools for his at the time developing psychoanalytical theory It could be said that this is the book in which the author introduces his views and theory related to the unconscious mind In this book Freud often uses real life anecdotes and events to discuss his dream theory For me personally the book was surprisingly easy to read I uite enjoyed the anecdotes and was pleasantly surprised by the warmness I cannot think of a better term of some of Freud's personal remarks I know I'm supposed to say something really profound after finishing this book It should probably be something about the nature or psychoanalysis or the important part Freud had played in the development of modern thought but I just don't feel like going there Instead I'll just say that what I liked most about this book was Freud's playfulness and curiosity of his mind His playfulness that in some sense resembles one of a child I mean that as a complement Even when I don't agree with what he writes I like reading him Freud was definitely ahead of his time in many ways Znam da bih trebala reći nešto dubokoumno ali najviše od svega meni je Freud jednostavno simpatičan Sviđa mi se kako piše sviđa mi se kako razmišlja a najviše od svega kod njega mi se sviđa ta nekakva radoznalost sa kojoj gleda na svijet nešto je gotovo dječje i zaigrano u njegovim teorijama Zato neću reći ništa o tome kako je on jako bitan za modenu misao utemeljitelj psihoanalize i što ja znam što sve ne to ionako svi znaju Zato ću reći da me ugodno iznenadila toplina u nekim Freudovim opaskama osobnije prirode i jednostavan način pisanja Doista mi se svidjela ova knjiga


  10. Alexia Alexia says:

    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 that makes his conclusions not drawn from a representative sample But that comment is where it stops there's no correction or real analysis on how that impacted his conclusionsOr he'll start out with a clear sentence and then explain it until it descends into an illogical jumble Or he'll refer to something not obvious as something obvious Or he'll say there's numerous instances of something and then not list them I could go on He gives too many examples belabors the points he does end up making references confusing German word playI'm not going to make the same mistake as Frued I'm going to stop talking once my point is made And I think it's made

the parent of the opposite sex to ourselves and therefore we desire to remove one parent from the scene so as to take their place While we are children the full implications of this desire are obscure to us – but as we grow older the taboo associated with this desire helps suppress our recognition of these desires or repress them rather – but only from the conscious mind The subconscious mind still remembers what we might prefer to forget and so uses these images as the first images of our awakening desires as potent images in our dreams The meaning of the image may not be anything like that we want to kill our father and have sex with our mother – it might actually refer to an awakening of sexual interest in someone else we have only recently meet – but the dream uses this ‘primal’ image as something to help it make sense of our current world and desires even if the image then goes on to confuse the hell out of usTime for a story I once worked with a woman called Frances Nolan She was really lovely one of the nicest people I’ve ever worked with but I didn’t really fancy her I mean she was pretty and incredibly nice but she was uite a bit younger than me and I just wasn’t really all that interested in her in that way But every morning I would be walking to the train station and when I got to a certain part of Church Street she would suddenly jump into my head as large as life I was starting to think that I must have been starting to fall for her – it was the strangest feeling and uite confusing Until one day I realised that there is a shoe shop in Church Street that is called Frances Nolan Shoes – and the sign is huge and I would walk under it every day I really struggle to believe I didn’t consciously notice this sign in all the time I had walked up that street and imagined I was falling for poor Frances This book is interesting as I had assumed it would be a much harder read than it turned out to be – I also thought it would be a much sillier book than it turned out too It is extremely well written I don’t think I agree entirely with Freud but he makes a very strong case My main problems with his theory have to do with Sherlock Holmes Because that’s what a lot of this sounded like to me Someone has a dream and Freud does the whole ‘Elementary my dear Watson’ thing It even gets to the stage where he says that sometimes things mean the opposite of what they seem to mean in the dream When that is the case then any interpretation is basically about imposing ones preconceptions on the meaning of the symbols in the dream I tend to think that dreams probably don’t mean nearly as much as we like to think they do – but what they do do is throw up lots of random images images which we try to make sense of and it is that ‘making of sense’ that says interesting things about us And whether it is dream images or tarot cards or ink dots on paper – our making sense of random images says interesting things about us But we should go gently into this stuff We should go on tip toes Because stories have lives of their own and we are weaker than a good story and always will beI once read a book called Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain I think in that book she says that lines have a momentum that is very hard to control – but controlling the momentum of lines is a large part of what drawing is about Stories also have a momentum that is very hard to control The narratives we tell about ourselves are one thing – the narrative we tell about our dreams are uite another Personally I think I prefer Freudian readings of novels to Freudian readings of people – but I can certainly see why this book made such an impact If the problem with the book is Freud playing Holmes it is only a problem because he is so damn clever he gets away with it I’m surprised I’m going to do this – I would never have thought I would have when I started reading but I think I would recommend this book It is a fascinating read even if it has left me somewhat less than convinced

    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 Peuod Ahab and the narrator cycled through the forest on a tandem bicycle studying tracks and peering through the shrubs Every now and then one of them would point through the branches and shout ‘Lo The white badger’ and they would pedal offIn my mind this was a serious literary project Unfortunately I have never finished Moby Dick and so the book just devolved into chapters full of interminable facts about badger biology lifestyle and cultural history and the foundational role they play in the mythology of countless woodland societies which is not true I remember copying out a uote from King Lear where someone is said to be ‘like unto the brindl'd baddger’ but sadly upon waking I have discovered that this line does not exist On the other hand I also remember repeatedly using the adjective ‘meline’ which does in fact exist and is not a word I knew that I knewIf anyone can interpret this for me I am all ears In the meantime if you'll excuse me I now have 200000 words to write about badger huntingAug 2018Another strange dream also animal related I was staying in an old house in the countryside around Lago Maggiore It was a big crumbling mansion surrounded by marshes and woodland like something from Edgar Allen Poe It was twilight In a dark creek nearby we found a shark and caught it in a net It was explained to me that this was a very rare kind of shark that was only found in the swampland of this area and that it was called Mercer's cat shark We tipped it out onto the ground It had a small body and a wide snout and was completely covered in short dark furMar 2020

    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 Roof DancerSidney and Sam identical twins crackerjack roofers started work up on a roof one sultry July morning when Sam tripped on a piece of tar at the roof’s peak and slid down head first He would have plunged straight to the ground if Sidney hadn’t reached over at the last moment and snatched him by his bootsHanging over the side upside down Sam had a view through a second floor bedroom window The lady of the house was completely naked Her ample rear end was bobbing and swinging to a polka playing on an enormous ancient phonographSidney yanked Sam back up to the roof but Sam became so excited in the process he ejaculated his semen seed By the time the seed popped out of the bottom of his dungarees rolled off the roof and landed in the yard it was the size of a cantaloupe From all corners of the yard kids skipped over and began frolicking with the seed Its round contour grew to the size of a watermelon in their handsSam stared down at the kids He began a high step gleeful dance part mazurka part gavotte part rumba part hornpipe right there on the roof bottom to top edge to edge twirling like some enchanted wood nymph his pot belly jiggling in pure ecstasyIt wasn’t long before the man of the house a bald mustachioed Mr Verea made his way up the ladder “What’s all this racket I’m hearing?” he asked scanning the roofSam pirouetted daintily at the peak doffing his baseball cap Mr Verea grabbed Sidney by the suspenders and yelled “Do you guys think I hired you to put a new roof on my house or perform ballet?”“Yes sir right away sir” Sidney stammered beads of sweat pouring off his forehead and bulbous noseMr Vera pushed Sidney rudely “Now I say do it now”Sidney wobbled backwards nearly toppling over the edge but regained his balance and shoved Mr Verea back A rapid fire shoving match ensued along the entire length of the roof At the same time Sam fluttered down on tiptoe scooped up an armful of shingles and started putting them in placeA fully dressed Mrs Verea made her appearance at the head of the ladder “Get back down here” she railed at her husband “Let those men finish their work”“Nobody is going to push me on my own roof” he replied“I say come down” insisted Mrs Verea“Come down yourself” said Mr VereaStepping up from the ladder to the roof Mrs Verea kicked her husband in the pants He stopped shoving Sidney turned around and started shoving her whereupon she too started shoving him furiouslySidney fanned himself with his baseball cap and looked over at his brother – just now between acrobatic leaps of a saltarello Sam placed the last of the shingles on the tarAs if he were at the court of Louis XIV Sidney curtsied gracefully then pointed to the ladder before climbing down himself Sam followed hips swinging but fell between the rungs There was nothing for Sidney to do but guide the ladder with his brother stuck in it to the vanThe kids approached; they held the distended seed the shape and length of a garden hose now translucent with flecks of gold sparkling radiating light in their hands When Sam jiggled and kicked down the driveway the kids shook the magnificent seed each shake casting out fine gold dust that turned to streams of water when it touched the earth

    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 illustrateprove his point dreams are the fulfillment of unconscious desires Though absurd they may look they are meaningful they can be interpreted This absurdity is due to unconscious mechanisms which disguise the true meaning of the dream namely via displacement and condensation Our language is also an obstacle due to its inaccuracyYet language is paramount for the interpretation démarche And Freud was good at it Tom Paine's nightly pest It's a pity he ends the last paragraph of the book considering the value of dreams regarding the future should have written prophetic aspect concluding that we cannot consider Curiously he took some lines on this woman telling his mother about how a great man he would become; he speculated about a minister 'The Interpretation of Dreams' by Rod Moss The fact is that this wish fulfillment approach proved not to be totally true With the great war 1914 1918 Freud had patientssoldiers who suffered from recurrent dreams war traumasand he concluded later on that these types of dreams nightmares had no relation to the Eros impulse rather to Thanatos a destructive forcedrive operating within the psyche So he made some changes on his model of the psyche Hypnos and Thanatos Sleep and His Half Brother Death by John William Waterhouse 1874 Today 15th of June I was listening to someone speaking about dreams of the USA in flamesand riots in the streets Those dreams happened to people before the 2012 Obama election They perceived a link between the re election and the feared upcoming events Surely those were dreams of the future; no pleasure principle operatingI'm glad they didn't materializeUPDATE I would be glad to hear of any help interpretation on Chief Golden Light Eagle's dream about Obama And how about the value of the dream for a knowledge of the future? That of course we cannot consider One feels inclined to substitute”for a knowledge of the past” For the dream originates from the past in every sense To be sure the ancient belief that the dream reveals the future is not entirely devoid of truth By representing a wish as fulfilled the dream leads us into the future; BUT THIS FUTURE TAKEN BY THE DREAMER AS PRESENT HAS BEEN FORMED INTO THE LIKENESS OF THAT PAST BY INDESTRUCTIBLE WISH”

    The Interpretation of Dreams deals mostly with what the title would imply; it is an examination of the dream world according to Freud one might say Freud uses the subject of dreams as a base to build on using dream analysis and interpretation as tools for his at the time developing psychoanalytical theory It could be said that this is the book in which the author introduces his views and theory related to the unconscious mind In this book Freud often uses real life anecdotes and events to discuss his dream theory For me personally the book was surprisingly easy to read I uite enjoyed the anecdotes and was pleasantly surprised by the warmness I cannot think of a better term of some of Freud's personal remarks I know I'm supposed to say something really profound after finishing this book It should probably be something about the nature or psychoanalysis or the important part Freud had played in the development of modern thought but I just don't feel like going there Instead I'll just say that what I liked most about this book was Freud's playfulness and curiosity of his mind His playfulness that in some sense resembles one of a child I mean that as a complement Even when I don't agree with what he writes I like reading him Freud was definitely ahead of his time in many ways Znam da bih trebala reći nešto dubokoumno ali najviše od svega meni je Freud jednostavno simpatičan Sviđa mi se kako piše sviđa mi se kako razmišlja a najviše od svega kod njega mi se sviđa ta nekakva radoznalost sa kojoj gleda na svijet nešto je gotovo dječje i zaigrano u njegovim teorijama Zato neću reći ništa o tome kako je on jako bitan za modenu misao utemeljitelj psihoanalize i što ja znam što sve ne to ionako svi znaju Zato ću reći da me ugodno iznenadila toplina u nekim Freudovim opaskama osobnije prirode i jednostavan način pisanja Doista mi se svidjela ova knjiga

    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 that makes his conclusions not drawn from a representative sample But that comment is where it stops there's no correction or real analysis on how that impacted his conclusionsOr he'll start out with a clear sentence and then explain it until it descends into an illogical jumble Or he'll refer to something not obvious as something obvious Or he'll say there's numerous instances of something and then not list them I could go on He gives too many examples belabors the points he does end up making references confusing German word playI'm not going to make the same mistake as Frued I'm going to stop talking once my point is made And I think it's made
