Description

Psychopathology of Everyday Life is a 1901 work by Sigmund Freud, based on his researches into slips and parapraxes from 1897 onwards, - one which became perhaps the best-known of all his writings. Jacques Lacan considered it one of the three key texts for an understanding of the unconscious, alongside The Interpretation of Dreams (1900), and Wit and their Relation to the Unconscious (1905). Sometimes called the Mistake Book (to go with the Dream Book and the Wit Book), the work became one of the scientific classics of the 20th century. Through its stress on what Freud called "switch words" and "verbal bridges," it is considered important not only for psychopathology but also for modern linguistics, semantics, and philosophy.show more
