In this article we’ll talk about Sigmund Freud, but more precisely, about an interesting medical exercise, the psychoanalysis.

Sigmund Freud, an Austrian Jew neuropsychiatrist, was probably the greatest figure in psychology history, and founder of psychoanalysis.

He was born in 1856 in Freiberg, Czech Republic and later became what is now on of the main personalities in psychology and not only. After his main works, he highlighted 5 main psychoanalytic theories:

Human development can be understood through changing of the gratification of the corporal zone of the sexual impulse. Sounds kind of hard to understand, but it’s really not that hard. He tried to say that human sexual impulse is what drives us to become better beings and develop our bodies, as well as our personalities.

The brain refuses lust and wishes, especially those with sexual content as well as aggressive ones, and those have nowhere to hide but in our subconscious mind.

Unconscious conflicts, linked to ungranted wishes have the tendency to manifest in our dreams and nightmares.

Unconscious conflicts and repressed sexuality are the main causes of nevrose.

The nevrose can be treated with the help of psychoanalysis, by bringing in to the real life all those unconscious ideas that won’t give us peace. I’m sure you all heard or even saw what is called hypnosis. By hypnotizing someone, you move his entire attention to the subconscious, and thus he or she is able to speak his subconscious mind. The interesting fact is that in real life, that person can say anything about what was going on in his subconscious.
