Sigmund Freud: Pathways and Knowledge

Sigmund Freud (1856–1939), was an Austrian psychiatrist who founded the psychoanalytic school of psychology. Freud is best known for his theories of the unconscious mind and the defense mechanism of repression and for creating the clinical practice of psychoanalysis for curing psychopathology through dialogue between a patient and a psychoanalyst. Freud is also renowned for his redefinition of sexual desire as the primary motivational energy of human life, as well as his therapeutic techniques, including the use of free association, his theory of transference in the therapeutic relationship, and the interpretation of dreams as sources of insight into unconscious desires. He was also an early neurological researcher into cerebral palsy.

Some Documentaries on the Mongol Empire

Sorry about the commercials: I mute them out. When the videos proper start, if you mouse over the screen, you'll see a button to watch the whole thing, rather than the five-minute intro. When you click that, you'll be taken to the Veoh site and asked to download their free player to view the whole thing. Some great stuff on there, so I'd download away.
