  Classic Article: Psychoanalysis
The therapeutic results of psychoanalysis depend upon the replacement of unconscious mental acts by conscious ones and are operative in so far as that process has significance in relation to the disorder under treatment.
Psychoanalysis is founded securely upon the observation of the facts of mental life; and for that very reason its theoretical superstructure is still incomplete and subject to constant alteration.
It is enough to say that psychoanalysis, in its character of the psychology of the deepest, unconscious mental acts, promises to become the link between Psychiatry and all of these other fields of study.

  psychoanalysis. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
Psychoanalysis began after Freud studied (1885–86) with the French neurologist J. Charcot in Paris and became convinced that hysteria was caused not by organic symptoms in the nervous system but by emotional disturbance.
Psychoanalysis and its theoretical underpinnings have had an enormous influence on modern psychology and psychiatry and in fields as diverse as literary theory, anthropology, and film criticism.
The basic postulate of psychoanalysis, the concept of a dynamic unconscious mind, grew out of Freud’s observation that the physical symptoms of hysterical patients tended to disappear after apparently forgotten material was made conscious (see hysteria).

 Psychoanalysis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Psychoanalysis was first devised in Vienna in the 1890s by Sigmund Freud, a neurologist interested in finding an effective treatment for patients with neurotic or hysterical symptoms.
Some defenders of psychoanalysis suggest that its logics and formulations are more akin to those found in the humanities than those proper to the physical and biological sciences, though Freud himself tried to base his clinical formulations on a hypothetical neurophysiology of energy transformations, an approach that was systematized by David Rapaport.
Psychoanalysis as a collection of clinical theories was recast as a theory of interpretation and development with a focus on understanding how the varieties of nonconscious dispositions and actions influence a person's life in the form of transference and resistance.

Psychoanalysis asserts that the impact of early childhood sexuality and experiences, stored in the unconscious, can lead to the development of adult emotional problems.
The main treatment method involves the free association of ideas, and their interpretation by patient and analyst, in order to discover these long-buried events and to grasp their significance to the patient, linking aspects of the patient's historical past with the present relationship to the analyst.
The significance of early infantile experience has been further elaborated in the field of child analysis, particularly in the work of Melanie Klein and her students, who pay particular attention to the development of the infant in the first six to eight months of life.

 LRB | Nicholas Spice : I must be mad   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The potency of psychoanalysis as a therapy lies in the way it exploits the emotional economy which Tonks describes, but from this exploitation also flow the tendency of psychoanalysis to methodological muddle and its potential for subtle forms of human abuse.
If psychoanalysis is to work it must trigger in the subject the emotional openness, incontinence even, that the self-deception of 'einmal ist keinmal' engenders - and it must do this not just once but time and time again (psychoanalysis, one might say, is like a whole series of one-night stands with the same person).
But if through psychoanalysis we learn that our most cherished realities are in important respects unreal, the practice of psychoanalysis has to keep reminding itself that what goes on in the consulting room is also in important respects real, that the unrealities of the transference relationship are framed by a real relationship between two people.
