Freud As We Knew Him
No current Talk conversations about this book.
This volume brings together for the first time a collection of memoirs, papers, reminiscences, and interpretations of Sigmund Freud as a human being. Many of these papers have been buried in the journals for years and have remained unavailable to the general public. Ernest Jones used some, but certainly not all, of them in his biography of Freud. A great many appeared abroad and have never been translated until now. The volume includes recollections by former students, patients, friends, and relatives of Freud, as well as personal assessments of his influence by some of the great minds of this century. Since Freud's personal papers and correspondence have not yet been published, or are being published only piecemeal, this volume goes a long way toward filling the void in our knowledge of Sigmund Freud as an individual. It is not a book about his theories. The collection includes pieces by Andre Breton, Thomas Mann, W. H. Auden, Anna Freud Bernays, Havelock Ellis, Ernest Jones, Sandor Ferenczi, Felix Boehm, Harry Freud, Martin Freud, Ludwig Marcuse, and Wilhelm Reich among many others. It offers a series of private views of Freud as he lived and worked in his study in Vienna. In a sense it is a source book for anyone interested in the history of the psychoanalytic movement, contributing to a new and better understanding of Freud and the people around him.
