In part because of its controversial nature, Freud’s theory was slow to gain inﬂuence. However, he was a superb and proliﬁc writer who campaigned vigorously for his psychoanalytic movement (Messer & McWilliams, 2003). As a result, his approach gradually won acceptance within medicine, attracting prominent followers such as Carl Jung and Alfred Adler. Important public recognition from psychology came in 1909, when G. Stanley Hall invited Freud to give a series of lectures at Clark University in Massachusetts (see the photo below).
According to Freud, the unconscious contains thoughts, memories, and desires that are well below the surface of conscious awareness but that nonetheless exert great inﬂuence on behavior. Freud based his concept of the unconscious on a variety of observations. For instance, he noticed that seemingly meaningless slips of the tongue (such as “I decided to take a summer school curse”) often appeared to reveal a person’s true feelings. He also noted that his patients’ dreams often seemed to express important feelings they were unaware of.
