Description

In May 2005 Penguin will publish 70 unique titles to celebrate the company's 70th birthday. The titles in the Pocket Penguins series are emblematic of the renowned breadth of quality of the Penguin list and will hark back to Penguin founder Allen Lane's vision of good books for all'. The founder of modern psychiatry, Sigmund Freud powerfully believed that conscious decisions are underpinned by a guiding subconscious that can be understood only by analysis. Taken from one of his most important works, The Psychopathology of Everyday Life, published in a new translation in Penguin Modern Classics, this volume explores why we forget, how we remember and why our memories can sometimes prove deceptive.show more
