Malcolm Gladwell, Bestsellerautor und Star des amerikanischen Buchmarkts, hat die wahren Ursachen des Erfolgs untersucht und darüber ein lehrreiches, faszinierendes Buch geschrieben. Es steckt voller Geschichten und Beispiele, die zeigen, dass auch außergewöhnlicher Erfolg selten etwas mit individuellen Eigenschaften zu tun hat, sondern mit Gegebenheiten, die es dem einen leicht und dem anderen unmöglich machen, erfolgreich zu sein. Die Frage ist nicht, wie jemand ist, sondern woher er kommt: Welche Bedingungen haben diesen Menschen hervorgebracht? Auf seiner anregenden intellektuellen Erkundung der Welt der Überflieger erklärt Gladwell unter anderem das Geheimnis der Softwaremilliardäre, wie man ein herausragender Fußballer wird, warum Asiaten so gut in Mathe sind und was die Beatles zur größten Band aller Zeiten machte.

Dieses eBook: "Die Traumdeutung" ist mit einem detaillierten und dynamischen Inhaltsverzeichnis versehen und wurde sorgfältig korrekturgelesen. Die Traumdeutung führt die grundlegenden Elemente von Freuds Psychoanalyse zum ersten Mal zusammen: das Unbewusste, die Verdrängung, die frühkindliche Sexualität und die Arbeit an der Bewusstmachung verborgener Konflikte als therapeutischer Methode. Träume haben nach Freud einen Sinn, der sich hermeneutisch erschließen lässt. Im Traum streben inakzeptable, von der Zensur des psychischen Apparats verdrängte Wünsche, die häufig einen sexuellen Hintergrund haben und mit Kindheitserlebnissen in Verbindung stehen, nach Erfüllung. Da Erregung den Schlaf gefährden würde, werden die Wünsche durch „Verdichtung“ und „Verschiebung“ verschleiert. Die Interpretation von Träumen mithilfe eines Therapeuten macht zuvor unbewusste innere Störungen und Zwiespalte einer Bearbeitung zugänglich. Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) war ein österreichischer Neurologe, Tiefenpsychologe, Kulturtheoretiker und Religionskritiker. Er war der Begründer der Psychoanalyse und gilt als einer der einflussreichsten Denker des 20. Jahrhunderts. Seine Theorien und Methoden werden bis heute diskutiert und angewendet.
