of the human soul.’ Jonathan Lear

‘Reading Freud in itself trains us’. Jacques Lacan

Why start with Freud’s writings in today’s psychoanalytic clinic? Is Freud’s thinking relevant? Where did later analysts take his ideas?

The unconscious
Repression and the symptom
Dream interpretation
The nature of sexuality
The Oedipus complex
The notion of transference
Neurosis and psychosis
