Keeping Connected: Freud's Second Lecture on Psychoanalysis - 11 March 2016, London


Freud's Second Lecture on Psychoanalysis investigates the possible relationship between dreams and mystical (or occult) phenomena, such as telepathy or the power to tell the future.

Eventually, he says that his clinical experience suggests that thought-transference is a real event, and that psychoanalysis has brought this possibility to light in a more plausible manner than mystical explanations do.
