"In June 1938, at eighty-two, Freud began writing this terse survey of the fundamentals of psychoanalysis. He marshals here the whole range of psychoanalytic theory and therapy in lucid prose and continues his open-mindedness to new departures, such as the potential of drug therapy. While the book remains unfinished, it covers the essentials of psychoanalysis"--Back cover
Civilization and its discontents by Sigmund Freud( Book )

49 editions published between 1930 and 2011 in English and German and held by 2,115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Freud's seminal volume of twentieth-century cultural thought grounded in psychoanalytic theory, now with a new introduction by Christopher Hitchens. Written in the decade before Freud's death, Civilization and Its Discontents may be his most famous and most brilliant work. It has been praised, dissected, lambasted, interpreted, and reinterpreted. Originally published in 1930, it seeks to answer several questions fundamental to human society and its organization: What influences led to the creation of civilization? Why and how did it come to be? What determines civilization's trajectory? Freud's theories on the effect of the knowledge of death on human existence and the birth of art are central to his work. Of the various English translations of Freud's major works to appear in his lifetime, only Norton's Standard Edition, under the general editorship of James Strachey, was authorized by Freud himself. This new edition includes both an introduction by the renowned cultural critic and writer Christopher Hitchens as well as Peter Gay's classic biographical note on Freud

The psychopathology of everyday life by Sigmund Freud( Book )

61 editions published between 1948 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Starting with the story of how he once forgot the name of an Italian painter - and how a young acquaintance mangled a quotation from Virgil through fears that his girlfriend might be pregnant - it brings together a treasure trove of muddled memories, inadvertent actions, and verbal tangles. Amusing, moving, and deeply revealing of the repressed, hypocritical Viennese society of his day, Freud's dazzling interpretations provide the perfect introduction to psychoanalytic thinking in action."--Jacket

Beyond the pleasure principle by Sigmund Freud( Book )

50 editions published between 1950 and 2010 in English and German and held by 1,342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout the period when Freud wrote his major works, various translations and editions, differing widely in the accuracy of their texts and the quality of their content, made their appearance. Increasingly, as the body of Freud's work achieved commanding stature, the need arose for a definitive and uniformly authentic English-language edition of all his writings, The Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud was undertaken to achieve this goal. The work is under the general editorship of James Strachey, and he himself made new translations of many of the writings, supervising the emendation of others and contributing valuable notes, both bibliographical and explanatory. THe result is to place this edition in a position of unquestioned supremacy over all other existing versions--which are in fact rendered obsolete

45 editions published between 1945 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,062 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Freud considers why we dream and what it means in the larger picture of our psychological lives. Delving into theories of manifest and latent dream content, the special language of dreams, dreams as wish fulfillments, the significance of childhood experiences, and much more, Freud, widely considered the "father of psychoanalysis," thoroughly and thoughtfully examines dream psychology. Encompassing dozens of case histories and detailed analyses of actual dreams, this landmark text presents Freud's legendary work as a tool for comprehending our sleeping experiences

Group psychology and the analysis of the ego by Sigmund Freud( Book )

47 editions published between 1922 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To Freud, individual and social psychology were virtually identical. The question he addresses here is, What are the emotional bonds that hold collective entities, such as an army and a church, together? It is a fruitful question, and Freud offers some interesting answers. But Group Psychology and the Analysis of the Ego stand chiefly as an invitation to further psychoanalytic exploration."--Back cover

Friends and apostles : the correspondence of Rupert Brooke and James Strachey, 1905-1914 by Rupert Brooke( Book )

10 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As well as their shared interest in politics, literature, art and theatre, the letters deal often and explicitly with the subject of homosexuality and with the sometimes scandalous activities of many of their close circle. Brooke and Strachey compare observations of fellow members of the exclusive Cambridge 'Apostles' (which included James' brother Lytton Strachey, John Maynard Keynes, E.M. Forster and Bertrand Russell), of mutual 'Bloomsbury' friends (such as Virginia Woolf, Duncan Grant, Vanessa Bell and George Mallory) and of such fellow Fabian Socialists as Hugh Dalton and Beatrice Webb. The correspondence provides important new biographical, psychological and cultural insights into Rupert Brooke and his poetry, and reveals the complexities of the man behind the heroic legend that his early death inspired
