« If we follow a pathogenic complex from its representation in the conscious … to its root in the unconscious, we shall soon enter a region in which the resistance makes itself felt so clearly that the next association must take account of it and appear as a compromise between its demands and those of the work of investigation »
Sigmund FREUD. (1912). The Dynamics of Transference. Standard Edition 12, p.103.

 

« Thus an unconscious conception is one of which we are not aware, but the existence of which we are nevertheless ready to admit on account of other proofs or signs »
Sigmund FREUD. (1912). A Note on the Unconscious in Psychoanalysis. Standard Edition 12, p.260.

 

« … every psychical act begins as an unconscious one, and it may either remain so or go on developing into consciousness, according as it meets with resistance or not. »
Sigmund FREUD. (1912). A Note on the Unconscious in Psychoanalysis. Standard Edition 12, p.264.
