The Insights of Sigmund Freud

Sigmund Freud (1856 -1939) was an Austrian neurologist and the founder of psychoanalysis, a clinical method for evaluating and treating pathologies in the psyche through dialogue between a patient and a psychoanalyst. He developed therapeutic techniques such as the use of free association and discovered transference, establishing its central role in the analytic process, and his redefinition of sexuality to include its infantile forms led him to formulate the Oedipus complex as the central tenet of psychoanalytical theory. His analysis of dreams as wish-fulfillments provided him with models for the clinical analysis of symptom formation and the underlying mechanisms of repression. He elaborated his theory of the unconscious and went on to develop a model of psychic structure comprising the id, ego and super-ego.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sigmund_Freud – cite_note-9 He certainly was one of the most important and influential figures of the 20th century.
