The paper discusses a definition of psychoanalysis, its pioneering figures, methods, contributions and limitations. The paper shows how the discovery of psychoanalysis "shook up" the course of human knowledge and supplied modernity with one of its central themes. The paper believes that it is impossible to cease marveling at the ingenuity of Sigmund Freud in his quest for an understanding of the human mind.

From the Paper:

"The sayings, "that was a Freudian slip, or "he has an Oedipus Complex" are as common as they are shopworn. However, the common use of those expressions serves as a convenient introduction to this paper, as it pays homage to the monumental Austrian thinker and the science he pioneered: psychoanalysis. Today, the importance of this science is rarely dismissed, but this hardly implies that a great many misconceptions and inaccurate cliches still mar popular discussions of its findings and repercussions."
