Jokes and Their Relation To Unconscious (60 Edition)by Sigmund Freud
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
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.
