Sigmund Freud æ Die Traumdeutung EBOOK

T unfortunate addition is a page section devoted to the kind of mechanical reading of dream symbolism long objects eual male genitalia etc that has gained popular currency and partially obscured Freud's profound insights into dreams In the original version presented here Freud's emphasis falls clearly on the use of words in dreams and on the difficulty of deciphering them Without the strata of later additions readers will find here a clearer development of Freud's central ideas of dream as wish fulfillment of the dream's manifest and latent content I dreamt that I had written a huge modern rewrite of Moby Dick except instead of a whale they were hunting a badger It was full of gothic scenes of Ahab staring moodily into some light woodland reminiscing about how the white beast had bitten his foot once and how he would ultimately ‘earth the hated brock in his dank and stinking sett and finish him utterly’ Instead of the Peuod Ahab and the narrator cycled through the forest on a tandem bicycle studying tracks and peering through the shrubs Every now and then one of them would point through the branches and shout ‘Lo The white badger’ and they would pedal offIn my mind this was a serious literary project Unfortunately I have never finished Moby Dick and so the book just devolved into chapters full of interminable facts about badger biology lifestyle and cultural history and the foundational role they play in the mythology of countless woodland societies which is not true I remember copying out a uote from King Lear where someone is said to be ‘like unto the brindl'd baddger’ but sadly upon waking I have discovered that this line does not exist On the other hand I also remember repeatedly using the adjective ‘meline’ which does in fact exist and is not a word I knew that I knewIf anyone can interpret this for me I am all ears In the meantime if you'll excuse me I now have 200000 words to write about badger huntingAug 2018Another strange dream also animal related I was staying in an old house in the countryside around Lago Maggiore It was a big crumbling mansion surrounded by marshes and woodland like something from Edgar Allen Poe It was twilight In a dark creek nearby we found a shark and caught it in a net It was explained to me that this was a very rare kind of shark that was only found in the swampland of this area and that it was called Mercer's cat shark We tipped it out onto the ground It had a small body and a wide snout and was completely covered in short dark furMar 2020

EBOOK Ú Die Traumdeutung æ Sigmund Freud

Die TraumdeutungOf the retelling of dreams as a continuation of the dreamwork and much Joyce Crick's translation is lighter and faster moving than previous versions enhancing the sense of dialogue with the reader one of Freud's stylistic strengths and allowing us to follow Freud's theory as it evolved through difficult cases apparently intractable counter examples and fascinating analyses of Freud's own dreamsThe restoration of Freud's classic is a major event giving us in a sense a new work by one of this century' most startling original and influential thinkers Written with scientific denseness but lacks scientific rigor or clarity Can be tedious vague and confusing Freud will say he's going to do something like not use personal examples only to forget he said that and do it anyway Or he'll acknowledge the flaw with his approach and then do nothing to correct it which is better than not admitting it I guess For example he uses his patients neurotics for analysis and comments on how how that makes his conclusions not drawn from a representative sample But that comment is where it stops there's no correction or real analysis on how that impacted his conclusionsOr he'll start out with a clear sentence and then explain it until it descends into an illogical jumble Or he'll refer to something not obvious as something obvious Or he'll say there's numerous instances of something and then not list them I could go on He gives too many examples belabors the points he does end up making references confusing German word playI'm not going to make the same mistake as Frued I'm going to stop talking once my point is made And I think it's made
