Jokes and Their Relation to the Unconscious
Jokes and Their Relation to the Unconscious Author:Sigmund Freud Throughout the Period when Freud wrote his major works, various translations and editions, differing widely in the accuracy of their texts and the quality of their content, made their appearance. — Increasingly, as the body of Freud's work achieved commanding stature, the need arose for a definitive and uniformly authentic English language editio... more »n of all his writings. The Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud was undertaken to achieve this goal. The work is under the general editorship of James Strachey and he himself has made new translations of many of the writings, supervising the emendation of explanatory. The result is to placve this edition in a position of unquestioned supremacy over all other existing versions--which are in face rendered obsolete.
This Norton Library edition of Jokes and Their Relation to the Unconscious is the only volume available in America that contains the Standard Edition text of this work.
Jokes and Their Relation to the Unconscious lies somewhat apart from the rest of Freud's writings; much of the material in it appears nowhere else in his works. It is his major contribution to aesthetics and ranks among the most fascinating of his non-medical contributions to psychoanalysis.« less
