Freud developed his system of psychoanalysis while studying the so-called borderline cases of mental illnesses such as hysteria and compulsion neurosis.By applying himself to a study of the patient's life he discovered that the hitherto puzzling symptoms had a definite meaning and that there was nothing arbitrary in any morbid manifestation. It was while tracing back the abnormal to the normal state that Freud found how faint the line of demarcation was between the normal and neurotic person and that the psychopathological mechanisms so glaringly observed in psychoneuroses and psychoses could usually be demonstrated in a lesser degree in normal persons. This led to a study of the faulty actions of everyday life and led to the publication of this fascinating book.
