  • Sigmund Freud

    Regarded as one of the ˜most important thinkers of the last century', Sigmund Freud is considered the father of ˜psychoanalysis', who revolutionized the study of dreams with his magnum opus, ˜The Interpretation of Dreams'. His theories about the mind and the mysteries locked within, transformed the world of psychology and the way people looked at the ˜complex-energy system', known as the ˜brain'. He refined the concepts of the unconscious state, juvenile sexuality and subjugation, and also proposed a three-way theory pertaining to the structure of the mind. Notwithstanding, the multiple facets of psychoanalysis as it exists today, it can, in almost all fundamental respects, be traced directly to Freud's early works. His works related to the treatment of human actions and dreams have been considered paramount in the world of science and proved to be extremely fruitful in the field of psychology. A freethinker, an ambitious rebel and an atheist, Freud's outlook is a result of his Jewish upbringing, his love for Shakespeare's narratives and his solitary life. Although there have been countless critics who disowned Freud's work for being highly sexist and unrealistic, there were many positive remarks about his discoveries and some even compared his works to those of Aquinas and Plato.
