Description:Dennis Nilsson of Sweden has put together this brief compilation of Freud’s work. Well done, Dennis! Here’s what he has to say about the book, available from the download link below:

Two months ago I searched for books written by Sigmund Freud, and I was astonished to find out that there was no book by him regarding his major contribution to psychology – psychoanalysis. But on the site Classics in the History of Psychology I found an English translation of the original five lectures on the subject of Psychoanalysis, which he gave in 1910 in USA.

These were published in html-format, but since I wanted a proper e-book, I started to create one in pdf-format. When I was done with a draft, I realized that other people surely would be interested in this original work as an e-book, so I contacted professor Christopher Green (webmaster of the psychology site) and professor Raymond Fancher, who has written the auxiliary introduction and commentary on Freud’s five lectures. I told them I wanted to make the e-book available for free to various sites on the internet, and they thought the idea was good and gave me a green light. The last weeks we have together proofread and enhanced the e-book, and it is now finished.
