‘A lucid well-organized expose of the theory and the manner of its development.’
Times Literary Supplement
This remarkable book is a biography of an unusual kind. It is at once the life of a mind at work, and the story of a long and intricate process of discovery. It takes the form of a stern and uncompromising analysis, and yet the author is so much in tune with his subject that the personality, and even the feelings, of Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) and his contemporaries emerge from that analysis. Readers will also sense the effect of the frightening enlargement of the known area of human unhappiness that Freud’s work revealed.

‘No mere potted guide this, but a genuinely original study. Richard Wollheim has not only trpduced one of the best available introductions to Freud’s life and work, he has also written it with extreme clarity and with as little intrusion as possible.’
‘A good concise account of the life and works of Sigmund Freud, useful for someone seeking a general view before plunging into the thought of the great man himself.’
By Richard Wollheim
