Started in 1938 and published a year after his death in 1940, Freud's An Outline of Psychoanalysis provides a clear yet comprehensive overview of psychoanalytical theory. Written in a way that makes it accessible for all, this book is perfect for gaining a basic understanding of psychoanalysis and deserves a place on the bookshelf of both serious practitioners and armature enthusiasts of psychology alike. The text analyses the ego, the id, drives, the destruction impulse, and the the inter-connectivity thereof. Sigmund Freud was an Austrian neurologist who became known as the father of psychoanalysis and whose seminal work constitutes the foundation of modern psychoanalytical theory to this day. This book is republished with an additional biography of the author.
