I think it's important to understand the historical context of Freud. What ideas he was responding to, how he situated his body of work in the history of science, and looking forward, what he thought his contributions would amount to. Because the standard caricature of him is removed from this context, we get the picture of him as the guy who said that you want to fuck your mom.

Feb 16, Charles rated it really liked it Shelves: nonfic-psychology. Freud was a very honest writer. Although I disagree with him on most of his ideas, he is clear in laying out what he thinks and where he came up with the ideas. He was obviously a deep thinker, although I think in some cases far too deep. Jun 30, Itsuka rated it it was amazing Shelves: biography-memoir , psychoanalysis.

Sigmund Freud. Sigismund Freud later changed to Sigmund was a neurologist and the founder of psychoanalysis, who created an entirely new approach to the understanding of the human personality. He is regarded as one of the most influential—and controversial—minds of the 20th century. In , Freud began to study medicine at the University of Vienna. After graduating, he worked at the Vienna General Hospital Dr. After graduating, he worked at the Vienna General Hospital.

Quotes from An Autobiographic It seemed no easy task to find a substitute for it. While I was in this perplexity there came to my help the recollection of an experiment which I had often witnessed while I was with Bernheim. When the subject awoke from the state of somnambulism, he seemed to have lost all memory of what had happened while he was in that state.
But Bernheim maintained that the memory was present all the same; and if he insisted on the subject remembering, if he asseverated that the subject knew it all and had only to say it, and if at the same time he laid his hand on the subject's forehead, then the forgotten memories used in fact to return, hesitatingly at first, but eventually in a flood and with complete clarity.
I determined that I would act the same way. My patients I reflected, must in fact 'know' all the things which had hitherto only been made accessible to them in hypnosis; and assurances and encouragement on my part, assisted perhaps by the touch of my hand, would, I thought, have the power of forcing the forgotten facts and connections into consciousness.

The lives of psychoanalysts are not eventful; they are spent listening to patients who recount their woes and struggles in life. So what exactly will or should an analyst describe? How should an analyst position himself?
In this case, there is a lot to describe since Sigmund Freud invented psychoanalysis more or less on his own. It would however be a good idea if the reader were to go through this study, along with those included in this fifteenth volume of the Penguin Freud Library, to get a more comprehensive understanding of how psychoanalysis came about as both a clinical practice and as a cultural entity.
As Freud points out, the history of psychoanalysis is interwoven with his own life; it began with his self-analysis; progressed in the analysis of his patients; and is known to us mainly because of the theories that justify it as a clinical practice. It is to these events in the history of medicine then that Freud will devote the better part of his attention in this text.
It might seem odd that an analyst who spent all his life listening to his patients might be reluctant to talk about his own, but that is not really the case. There are 1 See, for instance, Sigmund Freud , If we take autobiographical studies like this seriously, we will have to rethink the main purpose of an autobiography.
That is because every autobiography is a form of self-analysis; the existence of psychoanalysis as a form of clinical intervention presupposes that a self-analysis is not only bound to be incomplete but inadequate from a therapeutic point of view. This is the paradox of psychoanalysis since Freud was himself never clinically analysed, but seems to have analysed himself well enough to realize the theoretical limitations of self-analysis. The main events that constitute the life of thinkers usually tend to be the creation of theories or the publication of books.
It is interesting that Sigmund Freud does not take this approach. While he mentions his important books on psychoanalysis, he does not dwell on them like Nietzsche is fond of doing. With Nietzsche, the reader gets the impression that there is an overwhelming temptation to review his own books. It is almost as though Nietzsche were subtly pulling up his reviewers for not being up to the job of reviewing a writer of his stature. Freud however chooses to focus on the ideas that go into the making of psychoanalysis rather than review the core texts that constitute Freudian meta- 2 Sigmund Freud , Interpreting Dreams, translated by J.
