WEB OF SCIENCE℠
A resource uniquely positioned to reveal the vast influence
of an individual such as Sigmund Freud.
Dr. Sigmund Freud, the father of psychoanalysis, has his supporters
and of course his many detractors. Regardless of which stance most
psychologists, psychiatrists, and scholars take, all would agree that
Freud’s work was pioneering and massively inﬂuenDal as a catalyst
for ongoing development of psychological theory.
Freud considered his most important work to
be The Interpreta+on of Dreams, ﬁrst
published in the original German in 1899. It
is the source of many of his most well known
concepts. Regarding this work, he comments,
"Insight such as this falls to one's lot but once
in a lifeDme.“
The tremendous popularizaDon of Freud’s
works post‐WW II served to incorporate a
great deal of Freudian theory into
mainstream culture – as any recent reference
to a “Freudian slip” will prove.
Freudian theories of personality are a part of
any scholarly discussion of the foundaDons of
psychology – at basic undergraduate levels as
well as advanced studies.
Web of Science is a resource uniquely
posiDoned to reveal the vast inﬂuence of an
individual such as Sigmund Freud.
As an example – an undergraduate, for a 300‐level course
in Personality Theory, is looking to write a paper on some
unique aspect of Freud’s inﬂuence, and in parDcular The
Interpreta+on of Dreams.
