Young Doctor Freud( Visual )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This episode relates how Freud abandoned the idea that hysteria was caused by childhood abuse and implicated the power of fantasy and wishes, forces hidden from conscious awareness. He began to analyze himself, and discovered, in part by analyzing his own dreams, an inner rivalry with his father and long-submerged feelings of passion for his mother. He came to believe that such deep-seated emotional conflicts are powerful and likely universal a theory that became the basis of the now-famous "Oedipus complex." Concluding that dreams were the gateway to understanding the unconscious mind, Freud threw himself into the creation of a seminal work on the subject, The Interpretation of Dreams

Young Dr. Freud( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first episode relates how Freud, as a young scientist at the end of the 19th century, was fascinated by the brain. An aspiring neurologist, he traveled to Paris, where doctors were trying to understand the mental illness known as "hysteria," and witnessed its treatment with hypnosis. Freud committed himself to finding the cause of hysteria and its cure. Returning to Vienna, he began medical practice treating nervous disorders. To cure his patients, he tried, then abandoned, hypnotism, inventing his own treatment based on "free association" and interpreting dreams. As he struggled to formulate his theories, Freud was tormented by headaches, palpitations, and depression. To his horror, he came to believe that hysteria was caused by childhood sexual abuse

Killer flu( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Over the centuries, humans have endured many influenza pandemics. Descriptions of the disease in Europe date back to 1100 A.D., and sporadic, isolated outbreaks have likely been occurring for many thousands of years. But no flu ever struck as fast, as hard, and with such lethal power as the 1918, or "Spanish Flu," which rivals the Black Death as the deadliest epidemic in history. To a world already ravaged by war, the 1918 pandemic was crippling; some 30 to 40 million people died worldwide, with the highest death rate occur[r]ing in young men and women. In the United States, 675,000 people died, including over 40,000 G.I.s -- 40 percent of all of those who perished in World War I. Since the original broadcast SECRET'S OF THE DEAD: KILLER FLUE, Taubenberger's team has successfully created a genetic sequencing of the 1918 virus, resurrected the virus itself to study its effects on lung tissue, and this fall announced a striking similarity between the 1918 virus and today's H5N1 avian flu virus. Their findings indicate that the 1918 virus originated as a bird flu, confirming the legitimacy of concerns about avian flu"--FAQ page

"Still wrestling with his own demons and isolated from his colleagues, Freud reluctantly abandons the idea that hysteria is caused by childhood abuse. Instead he implicates the power of fantasy and wishes, forces hidden away from conscious awareness. To better understand his patients and to alleviate his own suffering, Freud begins to analyze himself, and discovers, in part by analyzing his own dreams, an inner rivalry with his father, and long submerged feelings of passion for his mother. He comes to believe that such deep-seated emotional conflicts are powerful and likely universal - a theory which becomes the basis of the now-famous "Oedipal Complex." Concluding that dreams are the gateway to understanding the unconscious mind, Freud throws himself into the creation of a seminal work on the subject, The Interpretation of Dreams, which would forever alter our conception of the human mind."--Container
