This is an excellent representation of Pre-PsychoAnalytic writings with the "Project" which contains several of the major case studies which led to Freud's theories on Hysterical symptoms and ultimately, unconscious processes. Breuer drifted away from Freud, just like most other collaborators including Fleiss, Jung, Ferenzci, Abraham, and eventually even his cabib-boy, ernest Jones. But his writings on the treatment process are clear and concise, where Freud is often a bit conversational and undulating in expressing his opinions in a roundabout fashion. Well worth the extra time to read. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0465082769, Paperback)

The cornerstone of psychoanalysis—and legacy of the landmark Freud/Breuer collaboration—featuring the classic case of Anna O. and the evolution of the cathartic method, in the definitive Strachey translation. Re-packaged for the contemporary audience with what promises to be an unconventional foreword by Irvin Yalom, the novelist and psychiatrist who imagined Breuer in When Nietzsche Wept.

Originally published in 1895, this early work of psychology is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. It contains Freud and Breuer's case studies of hysteria and their methods of psychoanalytic treatment. This is a fascinating work and is thoroughly recommended for anyone with an interest in the history of psychology. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.… (more)
