In 1915 at the University of Vienna 60-year-old Sigmund Freud delivered these lectures on psychoanalysis, pointing to the interplay of unconscious and conscious forces within individual psyches. In reasoned progression he outlined core psychoanalytic concepts, such as repression, free association and libido. Sydney Walker's fast-paced delivery in a slight English accent works well. He could be Freud himself, a dynamic speaker pacing the podium, pausing with asides and checking his pocket watch to make every minute count. The listener has no sense that the text is abridged. Walker's Freud is a powerful communicator; he illuminates how Freud revolutionized our understanding of ourselves. J.H.L. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: NOV 95]
