Sigmund Freud: Vienna’s Best

        Sigmund Freud is one of Austria’s most famous people. He was a neurologist and the founder of psychoanalysis. He was known as one of the most brilliant thinkers of the 20th century. He focused on the mind in his work and came up with some interesting theories that people did not quite understand at that time.

Sigmund Freud studied many different topics. He is mostly known for his theory of Unconscious. He was one of the first people to bring up this theory and what it means exactly. He stated that human behavior is normally hidden in our heads. Our mental processes have different states that can determine these actions. When you have a slip of the tongue or weird dreams, there are reasons that you do this. He believed we all made choices whether conscious or not.

Infantile Sexuality is the first theory that we think about when someone says Freud’s name. This was his biggest and most known theory. He believed there were several stages in this theory. As an infant, there is the oral stage. When babies are born, they get pleasure from sucking. The next stage is the anal stage. This states that a child will show interest in sexual parts and see that they are sites of pleasure.  There is a phallic stage and the Oedipus complex. This is all a part of human development.
