Sigmund Freud

(1856-1939)

Austrian Author
The Genius of the Mind

The Austrian master of psychoanalysis is stated as a man with no other intimate relationship than with Martha Bernays, his wife with whom he had six children.



Freud studied medicine at Vienna and specialized in neurology. He had been inspired by Goethe's essay on nature.



The most creative phase of his life corresponds to a period when he was experiencing himself severe emotional problems. In his early 40's, he had numerous psychosomatic disorders, as well as exaggerated fears of dying and other phobias.


By exploring then the meaning of his own dreams, he gained insights into the dynamics of the development of personality.


His efforts resulted in the most comprehensive theory of personality and psychotherapy ever developed. Freud gradually replaced the hypnotherapy of Breuer and Charcot, making the patient recall painful memories under hypnosis, by his method of free association.



The Interpretation of Dreams, published in 1930 , is his greatest work and an exhaustive study of dream.

In 1933, Freud corresponds with Einstein on the question "Why War?".

His theories on infantile sexuality costed him many patients, his friendship with Breuer, and to be banned by the conservative Viennese medical association.


In 1936, however, Thomas Mann gives a celebratory address in the Concert Hall of Vienna on "Freud and the Future".


In 1930, Freud was awarded the Goethe Prize.
