Jokes and Their Relation to the Unconscious (Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud)by Sigmund Freud
Synopses & Reviews
While in this book Freud tells some good stories with his customary verve and economy, its point is wholly serious.
Freud argues that the "joke-work" is intimately related to the "dream-work" which he had analyzed in detail in his , and that jokes (like all forms of humor) attest to the fundamental orderliness of the human mind.
Includes bibliographical references (p. -303) and indexes.
