Author: Sigmund Freud
Publisher: A Mentor Book (1953)
Professor Freud developed his system of psychoanalysis while studying the so-called borderline cases of
mental diseases, such as hysteria and compulsionneurosis. By discarding the old methods of treatment
and strictly applying himself to a study of the patient’s life he discovered that the hitherto puzzling
symptoms had a definite meaning, and that there was nothing arbitrary in any morbid manifestation.
Psychoanalysis always showed that they referred to some definite problem or conflict of the person
concerned. It was while tracing back the abnormal to the normal state that Professor Freud found how
faint the line of demarcation was between the normal and neurotic person,and that the psychopathologic
mechanisms so glaringly observed in the psychoneuroses and psychoses could usually be demonstrated
in a lesser degree in normal persons.
