about this book

In the forty years since its original publication, this book has become a standard introduction to the fundamentals of psychoanalytic theory for students and interested laypeople alike. Revised to clarify and refine concepts, this edition features two additional chapters-one on the effects of psychic conflict on normal mental functioning, and another that outlines the achievements of psychoanalysis and its prospects for the future. The presentation is geared to readers who view psychoanalysis from a professional or scientific perspective, but no previous psychoanalytic knowledge is assumed.
