This early work by Sigmund Freud was originally published in 1901 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'The Psychopathology of Everyday Life' is a psychological work on forgetting, slips of the tongue, bungled actions, superstitions and errors. Sigismund Schlomo Freud was born on 6th May 1856, in the Moravian town of Příbor, now part of the Czech Republic. He studied a variety of subjects, including philosophy, physiology, and zoology, graduating with an MD in 1881. Freud made a huge and lasting contribution to the field of psychology with many of his methods still being used in modern psychoanalysis. He inspired much discussion on the wealth of theories he produced and the reactions to his works began a century of great psychological investigation.
The Psychopathology of Everyday Life is a 1901 work by Sigmund Freud, based on his researches into slips and parapraxes from 1897 onwards—one which became perhaps the best-known of all his writings. Freud examines the psychological basis for the forgetting of names and words, the misuse of words in speech and in writing, and other similar errors. It is filled with anecdotes, many of them quite amusing, and virtually bereft of difficult technical terminology. Through its stress on what Freud called 'switch words' and 'verbal bridges', it is considered important not only for psychopathology but also for modern linguistics, semantics, and philosophy.
Abstract: The experiences and observations of Sigmund Freud led him to believe that the demarcation between normal and abnormal psychology was far less clearly defined than was supposed; he carried this idea to the extent of defining numerous common habits in terms of their deeper manifestations and causes. Mistakes which all people make were thought to be explainable as efforts of the psyche to cope with difficult or embarrassing situations; the motives for example, can be found and categorized, very frequently as being associated with sexual matters. Other everyday occurrences which fall into the same pattern are mistakes in speech, writing; and reading; concealing memories of childhood; forgetfulness; superstitions; and faulty or erroneous performance.

From Popular Culture to Everyday Life presents a critical exploration of the development of everyday life as an object of study in cultural analysis, wherein John Storey addresses the way in which everyday life is beginning to replace popular culture as a primary concept in cultural studies. Storey presents a range of different ways of thinking theoretically about the everyday; from Freudian and Marxist approaches, to chapters exploring topics such as consumption, mediatization and phenomenological sociology. The book concludes, drawing from the previous nine chapters, with notes towards a definition of what everyday life might look like as a pedagogic object of study in cultural studies. This is an ideal introduction to the theories of everyday life for both undergraduate and postgraduate students of cultural studies, communication studies and media studies.
