How to Live Like Freud

Original title: Agir et penser comme Freud

Author: Varrod, Pierre

Synopsis

The aim of the human brain is to create sense: we make assumptions about the intentions of people we meet. We do not believe in “luck” and we tend to establish links between causes and effects, which are sometimes not justified. But when faced with our dreams or our Freudian slips, we give up, and we don’t necessarily know how to react.

This is where Freud takes action. He helps us find a meaning where we only see “disorder”. Freud helps us find items of interest in things that seem at first glance uninteresting.

But Freud is not an omniscient presence who knows in advance what we do not. Nor is he a shaman who sees what we do not see. Freud is respectful of our own personal truth, and he helps us to build it.

Whether you are a supporter of Freud’s method or a novice, this guide will help you to know and understand yourself better.
