The Interpretation of Dreams

The Interpretation of Dreams

by Sigmund Freud


Throughout the centuries and across continents, humans have always tried to make sense of their dreams. Whether they sought answers through religion, spirituality, or psychoanalysis, all societies have had an interest in extracting dreams' deeper meaning.

Sigmund Freud was an Austrian neurologist. Known as the father of psychoanalysis, his revolutionary method of treating psychopathology through speech has greatly influenced the world of mental health and the scientific understanding of our minds.

In The Interpretation of Dreams, Freud sets the record straight on his understanding of dreams and helps readers study theirs to reveal their deeper desires, unpack their past trauma, and gain general knowledge of the inner workings of their psyche.
