Über die Psychoanalyse

Psychoanalysis is both a theory of the human mind and a therapeutic practice. It was founded by Sigmund Freud between 1885 and 1939 and continues to be developed by psychoanalysts all over the world. Psychoanalysis has four major areas of application:

  1. as a theory of how the mind works
  2. as a treatment method for psychic problems
  3. as a method of research, and
  4. as a way of viewing cultural and social phenomena like literature, art, movies, performances, politics and groups.
