The medical profession is justly conservative. Human life should not be considered as the proper material for wild experiments.
Conservatism, however, is too often a welcome excuse for lazy minds, loath to adapt themselves to fast changing conditions.
Remember the scornful reception which first was accorded to Freud's discoveries in the domain of the unconscious.

Not bad, not bad at all...
I liked it. I got a chance to see just how brilliant Freud was. ( I didn't care for him too much, before I read the book ). He was very innovative in his thinking and attempt to define why, what, and how we dream. ( it's a bit "wordy" for my taste. But I survived! )
I $ this before I took the consciousness course @ my school. I was intrigued, but since I've been forced to read it... I actually enjoyed it!!
I suggest this for the Psych "nerds" we must stick together! And gather all the great psych info out there!
I'm a total Adler fan, but Freud isn't so bad after all!
Take a peek at it, you won't be disappointed. :-)
This is a really good book about psychological analysis. I have studied psychology and have been intereated in it simce then. I always try to find books about psychology and this book is pretty interesting i recommend it. If you like psychology then you should read this book!
Freud discusses dreams, among other things, such as the conscious, foreconscious, and even the unconscious. Meaning of dreams are discussed so that the reader can better understand his or hers fully. I found this book as an interesting read because it discusses dreams in depth. It’s quite confusing, but I have a general understanding of what this genious has to say on the subject. He even discusses his theory of unconscious thoughts, feelings, ideas, some repressed, that become conscious within our dreams!
The only thing negative I have to say is his peculiar idea that everything relating to a dream, which is only discussed in one chapter, has some sexual significance to. You will understand once you read that chapter. Otherwise, it’s a fine book for a person interested in the mysteriousity of dreams.
