Sigmund Freud 



Sigmund Freud was born in Austria 1865. He was a physician who ‘pioneered’ the study of the unconscious mind. His studying stemmed from his great interest in literature, mythology and comparative religion. His work changed the way people thought about human nature. He developed methods of free association and the interpretation of dreams that are basic techniques of psychoanalysis. He also came up with the concepts known as id, ego and super ego which can be used to explain how our minds work consciously and subconsciously. He was a collector of archaeological artefacts such as ancient Egyptian statuettes. Growing up he studied medicine in Vienna and was part of a research team, which discovered local anaesthetic effects of cocaine. Many of his theories are largely drawn from case studies of his own patients also. In 1938, when Nazi’s occupied Austria he fled to London where he died in 1939.

Quotations from Sigmund Freud:

 When making a decision of minor importance, I have always found it advantageous to consider all the pros and cons. In vital matters, however, such as the choice of a mate or a profession, the decision should come from the unconscious, from somewhere within ourselves. In the important decisions of personal life, we should be governed, I think, by the deep inner needs of our nature.

 What a distressing contrast there is between the radiant intelligence of the child and the feeble mentality of the average adult.
