According to Freud, our daily lives teem with unwitting expressions of the wishes and ideas we try to keep hidden. These suppressed notions elude our conscious control and take the form of slips of the tongue, jokes, and seemingly accidental gestures. In this classic of psychology, Freud explores the phenomenon of parapraxes: slips of the tongue commonly known as Freudian slips, acts of forgetfulness, misinterpretations, and "accidents." These simple and apparently trivial events, he explains, can possess deeper meanings with subconscious motivations--meanings that can be revealed by analysis and can ultimately offer a clearer perception of the self. Unabridged republication of the classic 1914 edition.Freud, Sigmund is the author of 'Psychopathology of Everday Life' with ISBN 9780486428611 and ISBN 0486428613.
