The Interpretation of Dreams
by Sigmund Freud
Publisher: Macmillan 1913
Number of pages: 212
Sigmund Freud revolutionized the way we think about ourselves. Much of this revolution can be traced to The Interpretation of Dreams, that outlined his theory of unconscious forces in the context of dream analysis. Introducing the id, the superego, and their problem child, the ego, Freud advanced scientific understanding of the mind by exposing motivations normally invisible to our consciousness. While there's no question that his own biases and neuroses influenced his observations, the details are less important than the paradigm shift as a whole. After Freud, our interior lives became richer and vastly more mysterious.

There is a difference in the behaviour of an individual when he behaves individually and when he behaves in a group or in a social setting. Social psychology tries to understand individuals and groups and how they behave in specific situations.
