"The times are gloomy," Sigmund Freud once noted. "Fortunately it is not my job to brighten them." As the founder of psychoanalysis, Freud has had an enormous impact on contemporary thought, while his published theories on the human psyche—including the now-common terms ego, super-ego, and id—reveal a literary ability that was muscular, subtle, and original. Culled from Freud's writings and correspondence, and presented in a handsome volume with two-color printing and full-page black and white photos, this collection of quotes, maxims, prophecies, warnings, and witticisms showcases Freud's linguistic brilliance while revealing his world and his singular mind.
