By a detailed investigation of dreams Freud discovered a way of exploring the unconscious, recognized that dreams, like neurotic symptoms, are products of a conflict and compromise between conscious and unconscious impulses and was able to classify the differences between the primary and secondary processes of thought - between the modes of functioning in the unconscious and conscious regions of the mind. In addition, Freud was led to revise his methods of treatment for neurotic patients by introducing the valuable technical adjunct of dream-interpretation and to develop, largely based on this work, his revolutionary theories of the Oedipus complex and on the profound importance of infantile life and sexuality for the development of adults.

is fascinating and endlessly entertaining ( John Banville 23/11/2000)
Joyce Crick's clear, clean and pure re-translation ( john Banville The Irish Times 18/11/2000)
'The link between psychoanalysis and the arts is endlessly fascinating, and there is no better place to start exploring it than Joyce Crick's fresh translation. Crick returns to Freud's original edition - before he added the edifice of sexual symbols (towers and staircases) which have been fodder for a century of shrink-bashers - and sweeps away the archaic technical terms used in James Strachey's standard version. She returns Freud to the lay reader as, above all, a brilliant writer: profound, accessible, elegant, his case histories as compelling as fiction, the conviction of his vision a pleasure and a provocation.' ( Financial Times)
"What a delight, then, to have a new translation of 'The Interpretation of Dreams, ' on ethat strips off the scientistic veneer and gives us a Freud who is fresh and alive.... Lovely translation."--The New York Times Book Review
