The Ego and the Id by Sigmund Freud

This book presents a detailed exploration of the human psyche, delving into the complex relationship and interaction between the conscious and unconscious mind. The author introduces his structural model of the mind, dividing it into the id, ego, and superego. The id is driven by primal urges, the ego seeks to mediate between the id and reality, and the superego represents internalized societal norms. The book examines how these parts of the mind conflict and cooperate, and how they influence human behavior and mental health.
