Regarded as one of the most important thinkers of the last century, Sigmund Freud was an Austrian neurologist and the founder of psychoanalysis. He revolutionized the study of dreams with his magnum opus book ‘The Interpretation of Dreams.’ His theories about the mind and the mysteries locked within, transformed the world of psychology and the way people looked at the complex-energy system known as the brain. He refined the concepts of unconscious state, juvenile sexuality, and subjugation, and also proposed a three-way theory pertaining to the structure of the mind. Notwithstanding the multiple facets of psychoanalysis as it exists today, it can, in almost all fundamental respects, be traced directly to Freud’s early works. His works related to the treatment of human actions and dreams have been considered paramount in the world of science and proved to be extremely fruitful in the field of psychology. A freethinker, an ambitious rebel, and an atheist, Freud’s outlook was a result of his Jewish upbringing, love for Shakespeare’s narratives, and solitary life. Although many critics disowned Freud’s work for being highly sexist and unrealistic, there were many positive remarks on his discoveries and some even compared his works to those of Aquinas and Plato.
