Product Description:

This collection of writings is famous for giving us the phrase 'Freudian slip'. It also builds up a strong social history of Vienna and the middle-class social milieu of Freud and his patients. Through a series of case histories, some no longer than a few lines long, Freud explores how it is that normal people make slips of speech, writing, reading and remembering in their everyday life, and reveals what it is that they betray about the existence of a sub-text or subliminal motive to our conscious actions. As he explains, most of these slips tend of be of a relatively anodyne nature, but some are a little more sinister, particularly those where pride or thwarted love are concerned...

From the Back Cover:

Along with the Introductory Lectures on Psycho-Analysis, the present text remains one of Freud's most widely read. It is filled with anecdotes, many of them quite amusing, and virtually bereft of difficult technical terminology. And Freud put himself on the line: numerous acts of willful forgetting or 'inexplicable' mistakes are recounted from his personal experience. None of such actions can be called truly accidental, or uncaused: that is the real lesson of the Psychopathology.

Book Description Penguin Books, 2002. Softcover. Book Condition: New. 13 x 20 cm. The Psychopathology of Everyday Life was published in 1901. In the book, Freud delves deeper into the reasons for common, everyday happenings that one tends to brush off, like forgetting people?s names or well-versed quotations, suddenly. Freud uses one of his own essays titled On the Psychic Mechanism of Forgetfulness, published in 1898, as the basis for beginning The Psychopathology of Everyday Life. He explores the underlying causes for seemingly insignificant instances of forgetfulness and attempts to explain them, rather than brushing them off. He concludes that the high number of instances in which these slips of memory occur point to the fact that boundaries between the abnormal and normal human psyche are blurred and are apt to cause ?neurotic? tendencies in most individuals. According to Freud, this can cause severe disruptions to regular work, sexual relations, eating patterns and interpersonal communication. The Psychopathology of Everyday Life has twelve chapters. Some of them are Forgetting Proper Names, Forgetting Foreign Words, On Childhood Memories and Screen Memories, Slips of the Tongue, Inadvertent Actions, Making Mistakes and Forgetting Impressions and Intentions.
